'''''Wizards vs. Aliens''''', a CBBC ScienceFantasy series for children from Creator/RussellTDavies and PhilFord. The premise is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. The evil Nekross, who eat magic, have come to Earth, the last place in the universe where their foodstuff still exists. They are opposed by young wizard Tom, his {{Muggle}} friend Benny, and Tom's eccentric grandmother Ursula.

The series has a bittersweet genesis. It was initially intended as a six episode "replacement" series to air instead of ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' while ElisabethSladen, who played Sarah Jane, recovered from cancer. After [[ActorExistenceFailure her death]], it served as its SpiritualSuccessor. The Series 2 episode "The Thirteenth Floor" originated as an unproduced script for ''Sarah Jane Adventures'', never made because of the cancellation of the series.

* LargeHam: Given that the King of the Nekross is voiced by {{BRIANBLESSED}}, it's only to be expected.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'', as the series was produced after [[ActorExistenceFailure Sarah Jane's actress passed away]]. One storyline, "The Thirteenth Floor", was adapted from an unfilmed ''Sarah Jane'' script and many behind-the-scenes personnel were carried over. WordOfGod is that the series was commissioned when it became known that ''Sarah Jane'' star Elisabeth Sladen's health was going to delay production of her show; it became a permanent replacement when Sladen died and the BBC retired ''JA''.
