SciFi Channel to show Doctor Who in the US
The SciFi Channel finally admits that it got it wrong when it first passed on the new Doctor Who. It has now signed a deal to show the first series (with Christopher Eccleton as the Doctor) and it also has an option on the second series.
Sci FI Channel's Thomas P Vitale said Mr 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."
Although last year they said no because it was too British. Oh well, at least they're not stubborn. Everyone in the US cheer!
