If it's true, then I say: YEA!

I adored Dr. Who.
I'm curious as to how they'll handle the show with only a six-episode run, though. Hopefully the eps will be longer than before. I mean, back in the old days a six-parter was a season finale!
Outpost Gallifrey has reason to believe that the six episode quote from the Telegraph article may be incorrect, and the number of episodes may even eventually be higher than that.
But one serious question: can it be Dr. Who without The Master?
We're assuming, of course, that the Master died in the Paul McGann movie
Assuming that would be to ignore all the other instances in which he "died". There are quite a few shows where he had apparently done so at the end only to return again.
So if the new series does in fact star Paul McGann, it could well be that Sabbath is the new villian as well. Then again, incorporating the key elements of the book series could be messy...
Paul McGann was pretty good, but these are my top three picks for a new Dr., not that any have a chance...
