Good News for Doctor Who?!?!The Dark Herald
Yeah, I know. Trust me, I know. Chinballs reign of terror over the franchise has resulted in such complete and utter devastation of sixty years of canon that there really can’t be any genuine hope to be found anywhere. How can there be any good news for the most broken franchise in all of pop culture (and that’s saying something)?
Regardless, I am obligated to report this news to you.
Russel T. Davies is returning to the show to helm the Sixtieth Anniversary Special. The guy who brought the Doctor back from the dead in the first place is returning to the show after a decade.
In theory, he might be able to do something with the franchise IF he is given sufficient creative freedom. That is the kicker. When Chris Chibnall is done at the end of this season, he has no further say in casting or storylines, although it’s a good bet he will try to set up his successor to fail by writing him into a corner.
And let’s not forget Doctor Who is still owned by the Ultra Woke BBC. I am honestly not certain if they will allow anyone to produce any content without hitting all of their inclusivity checkboxes.
On the other hand, the Beeb is desperate for cash. Possibly enough so, that they will take a handsoff approach with Davies.
We’ll see, but I am justified in my doubts.
