Former Doctor Who executive producer and lead writer Russell T Davies who was also responsible for two Doctor Who spin-off series, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures will now be spearheading a new series on CBBC, Aliens Vs Wizards.

This new series consisting of 12 half-hour episodes is being created with Phil Ford who Davies worked with on Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures series. It is set to debut in autumn of this year on CBBC. It is being produced by BBC Wales in association with FrementleMedia.

Doctor Who writer's new aliens series:

"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.

"Writing for children is the biggest challenge of all and I think CBBC stands right at the heart of broadcasting," said Davies.

"So I'm delighted to launch this show, a true nationwide collaboration - a Salford commission from a BBC Wales team.

"We're joining genres too - the show's a wild, funny, thrilling and sometimes scary collision of magic and science fiction."

Faith Penhale, head of drama at BBC Cymru Wales, said: "We're so excited to be working with Russell again on this ground-breaking and hugely ambitious drama for CBBC.""
