Russell T Davies creates new CBBC Series

Back in November 2011, Russell T Davies, the writer who brought Doctor Who back to TV, has put his career on hold indefinitely following his partner's diagnosis with brain cancer, and moved back with his partner to Manchester from the USA.

Now RTD bounces back in the UK with Aliens Vs Wizards, to be filmed for CBBC at the new BBC Wales drama studios in Cardiff Bay (I think we are all aware of this :) ).

The new series has been created with Phil Ford, who worked with Davies on Doctor Who and children's spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Aliens Vs Wizards tells the story of two 16-year-old boys - a secret wizard and his scientist friend - who challenge the attempts of aliens to destroy the earth, it will be a series of 12 half-hour programmes produced by BBC Wales in association with FremantleMedia Enterprises for broadcast on CBBC in autumn 2012.
