RTD to Move Stateside?
Times Online’s gossipy womens section revealed:
Russell T. Davies, the screenwriter who rebooted Doctor Who, is leaving Britain to pursue a career in Hollywood. Well, thatâ€™s the conclusion we drew after spotting the Welshman, who will quit the BBC series when David Tennant regenerates, patiently waiting in the work visa queue at the US Embassy yesterday. A spokesman for Davies invites us to â€œspeculate awayâ€ about his trip. So we did.
And so they should. What with Russell’s former Doctor Who co-executive producer Julie Gardner moving to the States to work for a new BBC division in California, and former BBC One controller of fiction Jane Tranter already out there with BBC Worldwide as vice-president of programming and production, the question has to be asked – what are they up to?
