Davies OBE – Good for TV?

So the big man would have us believe.

Talking to the BBC,

"I’m delighted to accept, and I hope it does the whole industry a bit of good, for the writing of television drama to be recognised."

A spokesman for the BBC commented: "We are delighted for Russell – he is one of this country’s greatest writers and it is fantastic that his talent has been recognised in this way."

Which is a fair point… until you consider that for 4 years of slagging off UK foreign policy by stealth via Doctor Who, RTD has now been bought and paid for by the same establishment that he has been criticising. Yes, he brought back Doctor Who, yes he has done a marvellous job, but is this how he sees himself as a writer – one to wear badges from the Queen?

Isn’t this the singularly most embarrassing thing ever? Doctor Who = anti-hero, but look the chief writer and Exec Producer is on his way to being knighted!

This makes Dimensions in Time seem a minor blip in comparison
