Russell T. Davies Claims There’s Not So Much Change Going On With ‘Doctor Who’s Writing

‘Doctor Who’ is back with Russell T. Davies at the helm, but he says the way he writes the show hasn’t changed much.

‘Doctor Who’ returns to our screens with a new season and new changes, but Russell T. Davies says writing these stories isn’t much different from before.

Davies worked on the show from 2005 to 2010 and came back in 2023. He recently told ComicBook.com that some things about making ‘Doctor Who’ have changed, but the way he writes stayed the same.

“I think, in many ways, writing doesn’t change. Writing fundamentally doesn’t change. And when I’m at my desk, I don’t think, oh, it’s a new era now I’m writing things differently. That’s… what I mean is, it’s hard every single time, every single script is new. I don’t mean I’ve got used to it and I’ve learned how to do it. I mean, the opposite. I mean, every script is a blank page. Every script is hard work.”

He Says The Change is in the Special Effects

‘Doctor Who’ just started a new season on Disney+ and the BBC. This is the first time the show is airing on Disney+, and because Disney is helping to pay for it, they have more money for special effects. Davies shared that learning about today’s special effects was one reason he wanted to come back to ‘Doctor Who’:

“The main thing that’s changed especially with the bigger budget, with Disney+ is the effects, but that means they simply take longer and maybe we had some beautiful effects in the old days as well. But that’s a longer process, and I love learning that stuff. That’s one of the reasons I came back was that I felt very out of touch with how to make modern special effects and telly. And I love that sort of telly. I like being on top of that sort of stuff. So that was a happy learning process for me.”

‘Doctor Who’s new season stars Ncuti Gatwa as the Fifteenth Doctor and introduces a new character named Ruby Sunday.

New episodes of ‘Doctor Who’ come out every Friday on Disney+ and every Saturday on the BBC.
