*snerk* Yeah, like this is actually going to happen....

GET SET FOR DOCTOR U.S.

Doctor Who is being remade for US TV - with an American Time Lord.

The BBC are keen to squeeze yet more cash from the format following the show's success on BBC America. But the British background will be lost. US TV executives are poring over scripts for a series being planned by the team behind hit paranormal drama Supernatural.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: "The countdown is on for an American Time Lord to take over the Tardis. Doctor Who is as British as tea and toast or fish and chips. So there will be a few ruffled feathers at the thought of such a British institution being given a Hollywood makeover.

"This is going to be an all-American Doctor. Think Uncle Sam with a Sonic Screwdriver."


No. Just no. Ain't gonna happen, despite being reported in the newspapers. Now a US version of Torchwood on the other hand....
