Russell T Davies is back as Doctor Who showrunner
As the BBC asks itself, what’s it going to take to get people watching Dr Who and buying merch again, they settled on the only real answer: Russell T Davis. Yes, the man who relaunched nu-who is coming back to save it again.
Davies, who I don’t think has ever had a bad show, will be taking over the 60th anniversary and seasons beyond, and will pick the next Doctor.
Of course, he’s keen to keep you watching till then: “There’s a whole series of Jodie Whittaker’s brilliant Doctor for me to enjoy,” he said, “with my friend and hero Chris Chibnall at the helm,” he continued. “I’m still a viewer for now.”
No Russell, you are the king beyond the water.
