As if Buffy the Vampire Slayer
's move from the WB to UPN weren't jarring enough, the Slayer may be losing her watcher, Giles (played by Anthony Stewart Head
). According to Sci Fi Wire, Buffy
creator Joss Whedon
who also helms the show's Angel
spinoff is in talks with the BBC to launch Giles in his own British series. "It's not a done deal," said Whedon's co-exec producer Marti Noxon
, "but this is in discussion. There's an idea of taking the Giles character and doing a limited series in Britain next year. Maybe just a limited run... like a miniseries, perhaps turning into a series. It would be really awesome if it did happen, and I'm sure there'd be a way that people here [in America] would see it too."
