Moffat Regularly Asks for RTD Return

The extremely popular and positively received video clip of Steven Moffat being interviewed about plans for Series 7, Series 8 and the 50th anniversary included some interesting thoughts about Russell T Davies.

It seems that Moffat’s predecessor has been asked back more than once to provide a script for the series, something that he has so far refused.

On Russell T Davies returning one day, Moffat opined:

I do keep asking him. Do you imagine I don’t! I get really resentful if I hear he’s written anything that’s even vaguely around the Doctor Who area, because I’m saying ‘bring it over here!’ He’s the best writer breathing in TV. I’d book a holiday. The offer is continually made, but I’m getting nowhere. I think he did his duty so he’s maybe wanting a nice long rest from being a writer.

We reckon it would be very interesting to see a Russell T Davies standalone story that doesn’t rely on his own arc or his own characters – but what do you think?
