BBC One have unveiled their 2007 Winter/Spring highlights which include “the highly anticipated third series of Russell T Davies’s Doctor Who”.
The new series sees Freema Agyeman’s first appearance as the Doctor’s new companion, medical student Martha Jones.
Russell T Davies, writer and executive producer, comments:
“We were delighted and honoured by the second series’ success, and we can promise new thrills, new laughs and some terrifying new aliens. The Doctor and Martha are destined to meet William Shakespeare, blood-sucking alien Plasmavores, The Judoon � a clan of galactic stormtroopers � and a sinister intelligence at work in Thirties New York.”
