Wizards Vs Aliens renewed for series 3

CBBC has ordered a third series of the terrific Wizards Vs Aliens...

CBBC has several jewels in its crown, Wolfblood, The Dumping Ground,  Wizards Vs Aliens, Vic Reeves' The Ministry Of Curious Stuff, and of course, the dearly departed Horrible Histories and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Amongst the very best is Wizards Vs Aliens, the only children's series to win a place in our 'Best TV episodes of 2013' writers' poll, for outstanding instalment, The Thirteenth Floor.

Great news then, that Wizards Vs Aliens, like Wolfblood before it, has been renewed for a third series. The sci-fi fantasy was created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford and follows the story of young wizard Tom and his scientifically inclined friend Benny, and their adventures fighting magic-stealing alien race The Nekross.

Series three will find Tom and Benny "face to face with a new alien race and a whole variety of magical creatures". It's due to begin filming at the BBC's Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff in April for a late 2014/early 2015 airing.

With other words: the possibility of a 5th series of Torchwood is pushed back to 2016/2017.

Not really as Phil is really the main force behind this show. What's really pushing Torchwood back is RTD's new shows for Channel 4 and E4.

Did you mean the Ministry of Curious Stuff?

Only seen 1 WVA and man, was the acting poor in it. I mean, even good, known actors in it were bad. It was fun but contained some awful performances.
