Why is he being replaced as head writer? Does this mean he will be quitting Doctor Who? The evil dudeArnie 15:48, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Captain Jack Edit

Is it really nessecery to mention Jack, as he also invented (I'm pretty sure) Rose,Rose's Family, Martha, Martha's Family, Donna, Donna's Family and he designed the Ninth and Tenth Doctor. Why is Jack so important? TARDY- No Im Not Late 23:35, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Mainly due to the fact that he brought about a lot of homosexual characters into doctor who. Showing the world how progressive the show is getting. While also voicing his own opinion on the subject. - DontEatRawHagis

Writing style Edit

Though it is speculation if there was to be theme of the writing style Russell brought to the new series what was it? People talk about how the seventh doctor stories were dark and then light hearted later on(at least so I hear from a few people). If I was to sum up his writing: Used a lot of mystic and fantasy elements, such as werewolves, ghosts, demons, and psychics. His style was based on always ending with a bigger bang. - DontEatRawHagis

The Ood Edit

The Ood are credited as a creation of Davies, according to the credits of TV: The Doctor's Wife. Should that be noted or is there already enough about "aliens created"? 19:36, July 1, 2011 (UTC)

Removed: Edit

He wrote Rose, the debut episode of the 2005 revival, making him the first writer of original licensed spin-off fiction to also write for the official TV series. He would commission other colleagues in this area to write for the show, including Mark Gatiss, Robert Shearman, Paul Cornell, Gareth Roberts and Steven Moffat.

Terrance Dicks (credited as writer on several stories in 1969, 1974-75, 1977, 1980 and 1983), Marc Platt (wrote Ghost Light in 1989) and Ben Aaronovitch (wrote two stories in 1988 and 1989) wrote several spin-off novels between them prior to Damaged Goods. David Whitaker (credited as writer on several stories in 1964-68 and 1970) worked on Dalek spin-off comics back in the 1960s, and both Whitaker and Dicks worked on stage plays. So even if it means "people who wrote spin-offs first", it's not clear from the wording.

His contributions to Doctor Who are formidable. Davies is by far the most prolific writer for the BBC Wales version of Doctor Who. He has written more televised stories than any other writer since 1963. Including material written for The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood, he has written more hours of television set in the Whoniverse than anyone else. However, unless he contributes to Doctor Who after 2009, he will remain second to Robert Holmes in terms of the total number of hours of television written specifically for Doctor Who.

Considering Steven Moffat's five series run as head writer not a million miles from Davies, is the "by far" even possible or feasible at this point?

Between the broadcast of Midnight in 2008 and the final chapter of The End of Time in 2010, Davies became the only person to have written or co-written nine consecutive broadcast episodes (not including one parody mini-episode and episodes of Torchwood).

Terrance Dicks and Malcolm Hulke wrote ten episodes of The War Games. Unless I'm missing something in context here. -- Tybort (talk page) 19:22, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
