Title: Doctor Who | Returning Showrunner
Post by: Ren on September 25, 2021, 05:32:48 pm
I was very shocked to Russell T Davies is returning as Doctor Who showrunner for 2023. I am so hyped for it.

What are all of your thoughts about the BBC's choice for bringing back a previous showrunner?

Hmm…. He got off to a good start but things tailed off for me towards end of David tenant. He made tenants doctor a total dick head especially in waters of Mars and I ended up wishing they’d get the change to Matt smith over with.  By contrast, I felt that Moffat started out crap making his first series seem overly childish and too much repetition in the second series but got better. I can’t figure out what to make of whatever this current guy is doing… whatever happens happens I suppose. I could either find it really great or totally crap. Only time and relative dimensions in space can tell

I am very very happy about it. Chibbs the idiot ruined Who for me and a majority of the fan base hates him. Russle made some of the best of Who and while I don't think it will outdo itself I think it will be a huge upgrade from the crap that was season 13 and after.

60th anniversary in 2 years. Did you get to see the 50th anniversary special when it was first released to cinemas?

Series 13 hasn't even released yet lol but I think you meant from Series 11 onwards. The only real problem with Chris Chibnall's era of Doctor Who is his excruciatingly painful shit writing, and maybe some actor decisions. Ryan Sinclair (a previous companion to the 13th Doctor) really didn't have much to him. All it was, his dyspraxia and his terrible relationship with his father, of which was pretty much sorted out after one series. He really wasn't given any character development. Yazmin Khan hasn't either but I hope it's built on in the upcoming series that should be released before the end of the year.

60th anniversary in 2 years.

I am extremely excited for that considering that'll be RTD's first episode back as showrunner. Chibnall's era still has Series 13 and 3 specials (including the BBC 100 Year Anniversary special) yet until we get to see RTD's second era.

Don’t forget his reluctance to call Bradley Walsh his grandad 😂

The amount of times Graham (Bradley Walsh) tries to give Ryan a fist bump 💀

Whoops, didn't notice the typo.

I hope They keep Jodie for a bit longer then, give her a well-written season, or at least just until the 60th. Give her something good to end on

As far as the whole fanbase is aware right now, Jodie Whittaker is leaving in the centenary special, unless something changes beforehand.

Thing is will Davis take over before the 60th or after?

Russell T Davies is writing the 60th anniversary and at least one series. It isn't confirmed whether or not he'll be writing any more at the moment.

I wonder if Chris Eccleston would consider an appearance again now. I doubt it though

Eccleston was my favorite.  He is doing an audio thing as Dr Who

I was hoping he’d be in the 50th anniversary show in 2013, so we’d see Paul McGann’s doctor killed in the time war and Eccleston’s doctor carry on with David tenant and Matt smith. Instead they put that awkward plot of having John Hurt slipped in as an extra ‘War Doctor’ I still liked John Hurt but for me his inclusion felt like a desperate need to have a more mean angrier Time Lord who would be more believable destroying Gallifrey, Time Lords and Daleks than McGann would have.

I did like Jodie as the Doctor and hoped she would hang around one more year for RTD because she deserved better written material.

I think you’re right that RTD could have written better stories for her but it seems to be a thing that doctor actors do three seasons plus specials before handing over to another. More of a shame that RTD couldn’t have started a year or two earlier
