Science Fiction

Davies out, Moffat in
20/05/2008 16:56 GMT

Posted by Martin

Russell T Davies is to be replaced as Executive Producer by Steven Moffat for series five.

...and not before time I say! Davies will be remembered as one of the most influential producers on the show, along with Verity Lambert, Barry Letts and John Nathan-Turner, the last of whom he started to resemble in a horrific season 12 sort of way.  Apart from the celebrities I will particularly not miss the same series ending plot, over and over and over.

Moffat, recipient of the best writer BAFTA for Blink will get his series for 2010, with Davies' four specials to air next year.

This last bit's editorial, if anyone hadn't noticed.

Although at times Davies almost lapsed into 'JNT Syndrome', I think he deserves a lot of praise for reviving the show so well.

Anyone who can put in as much passion and energy into things is worthy of applause, and I can only hope that Moffat can build on his success.

But I do agree with Martin.....certain episodes tended to feel the same as each other, alhtough generally the new series has been very watchable.

Personally I hope Moffat dispenses with the vague romantic angle that crept into the show of late and that Rose is not mentioned for a very long time!!!!!

I think this is fantastic news. My only concern is that Davies is a lot like Douglas Adams and that he might burn out over the schedule.

Moffatt and Adams were/are both phenomneally talented, and also have their very own unique eccentricities/ways of getting things done.
The question is: will Moffatt be able to handle the pressure and workload?

He did write every single episode of Press Gang (and watching this again is an excellent way to see his talent develop), and produced Chalk, Coupling and Jekyll while writing them. This eventuality has been discussed since the re-launch was announced in 2003, with Mark Gatiss the other name speculated upon.

With Jekyl being a great show, the best I have seen out of England in many a year, it should be interesting to what direction the show is going to take.
A change can be best the thing that can happen or the worst.
I am praying for the best (praying as far as a atheist can pray that is)

There is nothing to compare his upcoming ordeal to; he's only ever produced while writing himself. The stewardship of Who will involve much bossing about and giving away of plot bunnies. And rejecting anything like Fear Her. Please.

I agree with axelf; Davies seems to have been instrumental in the current Who revival. His commitment can`t easily be questioned although his storylines can.
As for Moffat, I worry that the burden of production will hamper his creative output. I sincerely hope this is an unfounded apprehension as his stories have been the most original. Even when writing for the Who Annual he has demonstrated his originality of talent.
  I wish him well !

Do you feel the pain of acid reflux? Do you feel a fire inside your chest? Are you miserable? Are you ready for the issues to stop? Continue reading to find out how. Keep reading to learn to control acid reflux for good and to end the misery for good.

You may need to balance out hydrochloric acid amounts in your body if you want to reduce acid reflux and its symptoms. You can do this, for instance, by using sea salt rather than table salt. Sea salt has chloride and minerals that are good for the stomach and prevent acid.
