Doctor Who will reportedly be exterminated next year after the end of the fourth season of the revived series.

Producer Russell T. Davies has decided to bring the hit sci-fi show to a close so he can concentrate on other projects, The Sun reports . The paper adds that Davies and other senior staff are feeling the strain of the heavy workload imposed by the show — nine months a year of 16-hour days — and plan to resign en-masse.

Davies, a long time fan of Doctor Who, relaunched the series in 2005, 16 years after the original series was axed. ®
