So how many of you were paying attention to the interview clip with Russell T Davies yesterday?
In addition to confirming that both Sharon Morgan andÂ William Thomas would be returning in Torchwood: Miracle Day as Gwen’s parents (roles they held in Series 2’s Something Borrowed) the man who brought back Doctor Who and then created Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures revealed that he’s considering moving on from the world of alien invasions, immortals and time travel…
â€œItâ€™s interesting as to how long I can stay in the science fiction world.
â€œPersonally I think Iâ€™m coming to the end of it now and Iâ€™ve saved the world and blown up the world too many times. Itâ€™s time to write something just where people talk in kitchens.
â€œBut I hope we literally leave the franchise in a very strong position that other writers come in and take it over.â€
It’s a fascinating admission from the award-winning writer, not to mention something that seems to have gone over the head of many who watched the interview on BBC Wales last night.
While the popular Davies will forever be associated with Doctor Who and Torchwood it would be interesting to see just what other writers can do with his show…
