Russell T Davies
Only a human-timelord metacrisis can remedy this.
“He's a cucking funt, m'boy!”
Born to a drill instructor and a marathon runner, Davros had many friends and enjoyed a healthy relationship with his parents. His hobbies included running, shouting, and running. All that changed at the age of 15, when he came out as a Welshman. His friends deserted him and parents disowned him. He didn’t even get the chance to tell them he was gay.
"Er llnad oes llawysgrifau llweddi gogghhhlllroes," said Davros on the matter.
At Oxford, Davros excelled in track and field, theater arts, and long distance running. He often combined these activities, performing his self-written plays at the top of his lungs while running cross country. He was celebrated for his adaptations, 'Running for Godot' and 'The Merchant of Cardiff,' which the school newspaper praised for their 'urgency' and 'lactic acid.' He was voted the classmate most likely to win a BAFTA. Upon graduation he applied to work for the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Davros began work at the BBC on a long running hard science-fiction series. It included on its list of consultants William Gibson and Noam Chomsky, and dealt with nanotechnology and emerging ideas in the field of knot theory with relation to m-dimensional Euclidean space. To appeal more to general audiences, Davros emphasized the emotional side of the show over the science fiction elements, turning Coronation Street into a world famous ratings sensation. For his next project, Davros chose to resurrect Doctor Who.
The BBC were against the idea of bringing back the Doctor until they heard Davros’ pitch – he wanted to set the show in the future, namely the year 2005. This was a groundbreaking idea at the time, which was 2003. With Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and Billie Piper as his companion, the show became a smash.
Davros is credited with bringing Doctor Who into the 21st century by incorporating modern concepts, such as sex, regional accents, and special effects your grandmother didn't make for Halloween. He set it in realistic locations, like London and Cardiff and he grounded the show with ideas that audiences could relate to, like being in love with a 900 year-old time-traveling alien. New Who tackled science fiction, drama, melodrama, action, romance, and comedy – often within a matter of minutes. The show now targeted the entire family, including infants and pets. Viewers reportedly hid behind their sofas due to the quality of the show.
"Yym llmhob cwr o llwymru ddbu'n fodd," laughed Davros. "Wwwwwlllli awlwlllwllngori'r ddiawllwlwdith."
In casting New Who, Davros fought for diversity. At first he cast Eccleston, a Northerner, in the role of the Doctor. In Series Two, he cast Scottish star David Tennant in the title role after Eccleston left to care for his ailing integrity. The change was used to illustrate the Doctor’s different personalities: Eccleston’s Doctor was vindictive and moody, expressing distaste for the human race but affection for individuals. Tennant’s Doctor had a brown suit. After Piper left the show, Davros made headlines when he cast the first ever inanimate object as a companion. The piece of wood - nicknamed Marfa Jones - was another masterstroke, raising ratings and cutting production costs. However Jones was forced to leave the show after just one series when she was deemed a fire hazard. Davros is also an outspoken advocate for the ethical treatment of pop stars, casting Billie Piper and Kylie Minogue, thereby saving them from almost certain irrelevance.
Davros has been accused of producing Doctor Who with a Welsh Agenda – that is, gratuitous use of Welsh actors, locations, and slang. Inquiries have been made as to whether he is an agent of the Wales Tourism Board. Davros himself dismissed the accusers as disgruntled fanboys who are probably themselves latent Welshmen.
"Cyntafffwwll i adeyylliladllu llcewwstyllf, llcyn wdyddlliau brwwenlllhinloexxdd." said Davros.
He has however freely admitted to having a Gay Agenda, Gay Itinerary, Rolodex, PDA, etc.
He has also been criticized for speeding up the show and shortening its length. So fast is the pace that the actors must literally run from one scene to the next. In his defense, Davros claimed that art is a reflection of life and that the modern world is faster paced, citing that he himself spends just five minutes on each script, normally after it has aired. The rest of his time is spent filming the behind-the-scenes featurette, Doctor Who Confidential.
In 2010 Davros was unsurprisingly nominated for 8 awards in the nation TV awards and won 7. One from Davaros's life long achivements, two for his work in doctor who and the other 5 for his work in torchwood.

killing revitalizing Doctor Who and spearheading two completely necessary spinoffs - Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Chronicles - Davros announced he will step down as executive producer in 2010 to spend more time running. For this, the Queen of Wales awarded him an OBE. Fans rejoiced when told he would be replaced by a Scottish sitcom writer. Steven MacMoffat put to rest any concerns about the show's quality when he exclaimed in a press release: "Rrrg splutter splut! Achhh nae cannae Doctorrr Whuuu."
