“I’m a viewer now”

Former Doctor Who Executive Producer and Head Scriptwriter Russell T Davies has given the thumbs up to the latest series.

Former Doctor Who chief Russell T DaviesSince leaving the show, Davies has been living in LA but has been making sure that he keeps a close eye on his favourite television show. He told the BBC:

“The greatest responsibility the Doctor Who team has now is getting me a disc every single week out to Los Angeles, which I sit and watch every Saturday night and love.”

Does following the exploits of the eleventh Doctor and Amy cause him to yearn for the glory days when he was working on the show? Apparently not, according to Russell:

“I don’t miss it actually. I’m a viewer now. I watch the episodes and, apart from loving them, my overriding thought is, ‘Oh, that’s hard work.’ So part of me is very glad not to be sweating over that TARDIS again.”

It’s extremely difficult to find any major fault when it comes to Doctor Who, but Davies did make one remark on what would improve the show:

“The only thing I’d change is I’d make 20 episodes a year. I’m sure they’ll be glad to hear that. More Doctor Who, that’s what we need.”
