Doctor Who, which ran for 36 years until 1989, will return to screens in 2005, written by Russell T Davies who has written many award-winning TV shows.

Doctor Who
The Doctor is a Timelord - the first people to invent time travel

A huge Who fan, Russell has been hinting for years that he wanted to bring the Doctor back.

"The Doctor's had a good rest and now it's time to bring him back!"
