Dr Who Leads Movie Wishlist

DOCTOR Who has pipped Friends as the TV series people most want to see turned into a movie.

The revival of Doctor Who, starring David Tennant, came top of a list of shows viewers are clamouring to see adapted for the bigscreen.

Sci-fi series Red Dwarf was third, followed by the US hits Heroes and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Spooks, the BBC series about MI5 spies, was sixth in the poll for the Radio Times. It was followed by 24, starring Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, Lost, Torchwood, and the Sixties series, The Prisoner.

Star Trek was named the show that has made the most successful transition to the big screen.

Sex and the City came third, The Simpsons fifth, Charlie's Angels seventh and The X Files, recently revived with original stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, 10th.

Around 2,300 TV fans were polled online in July and August this year.
