RTD & The RT

Russell T. Davies has said he’s definitely not going to be involved with Doctor Who for the foreseeable future. In particular, he’s refused to do something for the upcoming ten year anniversary of the rebooted show:

Someone from the [BBC’s] branding team sent me a very lovely email saying do you want to do something.

I don’t know what they imagined: a talk or a convention perhaps. I just said no, to be honest. A programme can’t have its fiftieth and then it’s tenth. I think that’s just confusing. It’s marvellous and glorious; let it carry on.

As for coming back as a writer, Davies said that he’s turned down a couple of invitations:

Wouldn’t that be nice? The lovely Steven [Moffat] invites me every year to come and write one. And I love him and I love them and I love watching it, but here I am, moving on. I love Doctor Who with all my heart but nothing is more important to me than my own stuff… I made 60 episodes and did 40 Torchwoods and 40 Sarah Janes and there are an awful lot of ways to destroy the world in there.

What is the best Doctor Who episode of the modern era?

On the 26th of March 2015 it will be 10 years since Doctor Who’s rebirth – and while former showrunner Russell T Davies won’t be celebrating by taking part, we’re pretty excited about the big day.

Over the past ten years we’ve had two showrunners, four (or five) Doctors, dozens of companions, 117 episodes and an awful lot of running down corridors – and now it’s time to take stock.

Which episodes from the revived series do you think will stand the test of time and still be being enjoyed in another ten years? And which couldn’t you even sit through on the very first watch?

We want to find the very best episode since the Tardis opened its doors again in 2005 – and you’re going to help us by voting for your favourites.

We’ve divided the episodes of NuWho (as the kids call it) into polls roughly by series, which can be accessed from the links below. A month before the anniversary we’ll pick out the 10 highest-voted episodes to go into the next round – no matter which series or poll they’re from, the episodes with the most votes will go through.

In other words, just because your favourite episode is up against Blink or The Day of the Doctor doesn’t mean it can’t get past the first round – even if it comes second, with enough votes it’ll make it through.

Follow the links below to get to the polls and a reminder of each episode if you need it – and get voting!

Series 1 (2005) – vote for your favourite episode

Series 2 (2005-6) – vote for your favourite episode

Series 3 (2006-7) – vote for your favourite episode

Series 4 (2007-8) – vote for your favourite episode
