The remake of the successful series, starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper, will air in March in the United States. The Sci Fi Channel also has the option of buying the second season, starring David Tennant as the Doctor.

Sci Fi Channel spokesperson, Thomas P Vitale, said: "With its rich history of imaginative storytelling, Doctor Who is a true sci-fi classic. We're excited to add the show to our line up."

  British Sci-fi retakes its place  
as some of the best in the world, its been a long time in coming.
Perhaps some of the blinkered British TV exec's will now start investing in new exciting shows for the future. Preferably one's without shakey sets and dodgey CGI.

It has the storyline and production values of a kid show. It's foremost an exercise in camp.

  Dr. Who rules  
I am happy that we are finally getting the new series. I grew up on the Tom Baker series on PBS. My favorite villains are Daleks, Cybermen, and the creatures from "Nightmare on Eden".

John Pertwee was good, too. I wish that they would sell the DVDs in Seasons, instead of individual story lines.
