"What Rose brings to the Doctor’s life is completion. It’s completing a circle – he’s male, he’s alien, he’s a traveller. Between the two of them together they complement each other and discover each other. And are in love with each other – absolutely, unashamedly, unreservedly.” – Russell T Davies

Happy Birthday to Jenna Coleman and Russell T Davies!

Russell T Davies Writes A Story For Bernard Cribbins

This is rather lovely. Bernard Cribbins, who of course you’ll recognise as Donna Noble’s grandad Wilf from Doctor Who, is starring in a new TV show called Old Jack’s Boat, on the BBC children’s channel CBeebies.
The show revolves around a fisherman, his pet Salty Dog, and the stories he tells, and also stars (among other people) fellow-Who graduate Freema Agyeman. Bernard is no stranger to children’s TV, having narrated and appeared in all sorts of children’s shows, from The Wombles (a ’70s animated smash hit, that actually got revived in the late ’90s), to The Railway Children.
But in his latest show, the one thing the production team are always on the lookout for are stories. And having been taken back into the Doctor Who family by Russell T Davies, Bernard knew just the fella to ask.

Grey’s Anatomy’ creator Shonda Rhimes talks about her ‘psychotic’ love for ‘Doctor Who’

How much does Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice creator Shonda Rhimes love the British sci-fi show Doctor Who? “I feel the two highlights of my past five years are I got to meet (former Who executive producer) Russell Davies and I got to meet the star of (Who spin-off show) Torchwood, John Barrowman, who was in one of our pilots,” reveals the prolific TV showrunner. Indeed, an episode from the most recent season of Grey’s Anatomy featured a Who fan who lost his ear at a fan convention while rushing to get a model TARDIS signed by Davies.
Rhimes talked about her love for the show in last week’s Entertainment Weekly Doctor Who cover story (see above). But she had much, much more to say about the 49-year-old TV institution — whose new season debuts on BBC America later this summer — as you can read below…

Russell T Davies on the Ninth Doctor’s death.

Doctor Who Confidential - 1.13 - The Last Battle

Happy Birthday Russell T. Davies!

But am I worried that some viewers might find Donna’s departure TOO sad? Not remotely. Not for a single second. I believe, hugely, massively, that TV isn’t there to make you smile. Drama certainly isn’t. That ending is devastating. I hope it’s never forgotten. I hope people cry for years. In 70 years’ time, kids watching it now will be in old folks’ homes, saying, ‘Oh, why couldn’t Donna Noble have remembered just one thing?!’ There’s this great misconception that the Slitheen are for kids, and episodes like ‘Human Nature’ and ‘The Family of Blood’ are for adults. In fact, adults can enjoy daft green monsters, and kids can appreciate emotional, grown-up drama. Pixar understands that perfectly. JK Rowling does. If kids are upset, then they’re feeling something, and kids feel things vividly. The death of a goldfish is like the end of the world. It’s keen, real and powerful for them. But that doesn’t make it something to be avoided. If they can reach that state through fiction, well, they’re actually experiencing something wonderful. And important.

Oh wow amazing RTD doesn’t think TV has to be happy clappy times. I wouldn’t have gotten that impression from his work.

Sarah Jane Team To Work On Russell T Davies’ New Kids Show: "It's Doctor Who meets Harry Potter"

The BBC has signed up to a new Russell T Davies TV show, Aliens Vs Wizards for their children’s CBBC channel, something he has previously described as a “small committment”.

Revealed by his agent’s website, he is also listed as creating the show with Doctor Who writer and Sarah Jane Adventures head writer Phil Ford.

But BBC insiders tell me Ford is not alone in that and much of the crew to Sarah Jane Adventures, which finished half way through its fifth series after the death of lead actress Elizabeth Sladen, are working on the show.

The series is being written by familiar Sarah Jane Adventures writers including Gareth Roberts and Joseph Lidster, is set in the present day and will follow the Sarah Jane Adventures formula of twelve two part half hour episodes.

But I have to write like that. Funny, sad, all at once. That’s how life is. You can have a pratfall at a funeral. You can laugh so much that you choke to death. The Master is dark and genuinely, drum-beatingly insane, and therefore can be funny as hell. Jackie Tyler makes us laugh, but I knew that I’d uncover something sad at the heart of her. Her sadness over her absent daughter is there as early as “Aliens of London,” but you don’t really get to see it properly until “Love & Monsters.” Idiots will say “Ah, that character is developing now” - what, like you were going to play it all in the first 30 seconds?! - but that capacity was always there. It had to be. Even in “Rose,” when Jackie is ostensibly “funny,” telling her daughter to get a job in the butcher’s, Jackie is one of the things that’s holding Rose back - and that’s quite dark, at its heart. “Funny” is hiding a lot of other stuff.

Doctor Who’s Russell T Davies quits to care for partner

Russell T Davies, the writer who brought Doctor Who back to TV, has put his career on hold indefinitely following his partner’s diagnosis with brain cancer.
He and Andrew Smith have left their base in Los Angeles and returned to their former home in Manchester.
Mr Smith has already had surgery and faces months of chemotherapy.
Mr Davies had been working on a new series called Cucumber, a BBC Worldwide and US network collaboration.
The Swansea-born writer told PinkNews.co.uk the TV companies had both been accommodating and sympathetic to his situation.
He said the couple’s life in LA had “closed down overnight” following the diagnosis, which came after Smith complained of severe headaches.

Our thoughts and wishes go out to RTD and his family.
