Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Now the Doctor Does . . .

DOCTOR WHO has been sold for German viewers and will be re-dubbed into German, BBC Worldwide have announced today. They have done a deal with broadcaster ProSieben, which has licensed the first two series.

The character of Rose will be voiced by Maren Rainer. Maren has previously provided Scarlett Johansson's voice for the hit movie "Lost In Translation", when it was released in Germany. Frank Roth will voice the ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), in the dubbed version. A voice for the tenth Doctor (David Tennant), is yet to be announced.

Isabelle Helle of BBC Worldwide said: “The show has gone to 16 countries. We are excited German viewers can enjoy the Time Lord’s adventures.”
