Wizards vs Aliens

Wizards vs Aliens is a science fantasy television programme . It is produced by BBC Wales and FremantleMedia for CBBC and co-created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford.

Premise Edit

Wizards vs Aliens is an action, adventure series which sees the collision of two very different worlds.

The first series focuses on Tom Clarke, a 16-year-old Wizard, and his scientist best friend Benny Sherwood as they come across the forces of an alien race called the Nekross who have invaded Earth to consume anything or anyone connected to Magic.

The second series continues the battle between the two sides and sheds more focus on magical creatures and locations and Jathro and Kooth's plan to overthrow the Nekross royals.

History Edit

Origin Edit

Wizards vs Aliens was originally co-created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford to fill in the 5:00 schedule slot previously held by Davies's TV series, The Sarah Jane Adventures after its main actress, Elisabeth Sladen died. Although there were ideas for a replacement show before Sladen died, it was only during a meal when Ford and Davies came up with a unique idea, Aliens vs Wizards.

Name Edit

With the original focus of the series being a combination of alien life and magic, it felt only right that the programme should be called Aliens vs Wizards but, as Davies revealed, legal matters led to the show being renamed Wizards vs Aliens.

Production Edit

The development process of Wizards vs Aliens lasted six months. Davies described the script of the first episode as the "fifteenth draft" due to the vast number of ideas for the series. Davies revealed that, at one point, Tom had a sister but the idea was scrapped after looking towards future episodes and thinking whether she would work. Davies saw the three spells rule as a "marvelous part of the plot" and something that kids "really get into".
