Russell T. Davies Will Return to Doctor Who After 12 Years

No, you didn’t just time-travel. Russell T. Davies, the man fans credit with reviving the BBC sci-fi hit Doctor Who, is set to take over the TARDIS once more after 12 years. Davies brought Doctor Who back to TV in 2005 with collaborators Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, who also return, producing under Bad Wolf. The television creator is behind shows including Queer As Folk, A Very English Scandal, Years and Years, and It’s a Sin. He succeeds Chris Chibnall, who departs next year along with current Time Lord Jodie Whittaker. Davies makes his return for 2023 for the show’s 60th anniversary and “series beyond.” “I’m beyond excited to be back on my favourite show,” Davies said in the announcement. “But we’re time-travelling too fast, there’s a whole series of Jodie Whittaker’s brilliant Doctor for me to enjoy, with my friend and hero Chris Chibnall at the helm — I’m still a viewer for now.”
