Good News for Doctor Who?!?!

Good News for Doctor Who?!?!

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.

    Bringing Davies back is an admission that the show’s gone far off the rails, and a huge concession to reality from a body as SJW-riddled as the BBC. Whether he’ll be ruthless enough to dump all the nonsense left behind by Chibnall and Moffat is another matter.

    I’m afraid this is one time where I have to disagree with the Dark Herald.
    1)Davies is the guy that gave the world its first black companions, not to mention officially introduced DW to the concept of sodomy – and the story where that happens even states that EVERYONE will be omnisexual by the 51st century.
    2)His DW is not as good as you remember it: its fundamental themes are nihilism and hedonism, with an unhealthy dosage of egocentricity (I know, how unexpected from a middle-aged gay atheist); the spin-off he 100% created, Torchwood, was even worse in this regard.
    3)Yes, he wasn’t a full-blown SJW back in 2005/2010 – but that’s because the Woke Factor, while present, was not that insane before the turn of the decade; go look for the additions he made in his novelisation of the first episode of Modern Who, published three years ago*: they include noting that Mickey Smith has three flatmates, of which one “is a trans woman named Sally Salter, the others are two young men named Mook and Patrice who are attracted to each other”, not to mention revealing that possible future Doctors include “a tall, bald black woman wielding a flaming sword” and “a young girl or boy in a hi-tech wheelchair”.
    4)And of course, in the list of people who don’t get better with age, gay men must be pretty high up there: he now has an extra decade of experience in trying to convince himself that the emptiness he feels inside has nothing to do with his rejection of God. Don’t expect too much of him, it’s all I’m saying: the best you can hope for is Mandalorian Who – reliably mediocre but watchable.

    BBC should appoint Vox Day as the showrunner and he can cast Milo as the new Doctor with Owen Benjamin as support. Or perhaps the other way round – the first American Doctor!

    They should just end it already. Its ran long enough. Every franchise can’t run forever.

    Opening scene. The doctor wakes up in bed screaming. Sighs. “It was all just a nightmare.”

    Doctor Who is dead. Go back and watch Tom Baker the Fourth Doctor if you want to stroll down memory lane. Only Secret Hideout could destroy a franchise faster than the talentless moron Chibnall (Chinballs) and clueless femin*zi Jodie Whitaker. BBC is way to “woke” and pathetically inept to product anything redeeming and even if Davies is returning, BBC will find a way to derail his ideas.

    It’s a show about time travel. They can literally fix anything.

      Watch the last episode of Doctor Who’s 12th Series entitled “The Timeless Children”. Doctor Who is dead, you can’t come back from that. It’s over.

    Going to recommend orbital bombardment for this franchise, too.

      They already did and named it “The Timeless Children”.
