British toy trade magazine "Toy News" reports in its newest (March 19) issue, in a news item headlined "BBC calls the Doctor," that "Doctor Who is a focus for BBC Worldwide this year..." Says the article, "Doctor Who celebrates his 40th anniversary in 2003 and the BBC is searching for new licensees to commemorate the milestone. The brand's first new style guide has been put together, with a core target of ages 18 - 34 with an interest in retro style. 'We have streamlined the existing licensee base to ensure a unity of design and the highest standards of quality and accessibility, and we're now looking for new licensees to get involved,' explained Siobhan Williamson, head of global adult licensing at BBC Worldwide."
