Here’s a little something I wrote sometime last week for Creators.co.
As Steven Moffat’s tenure as show runner ends, I decided to take a look back at the two show runners that Nu Who has had so far, starting with none other than Russell T. Davies, the man who started it all for Nu Who.
There, I looked at the man himself, his contributions to the series, his writing and show running style, and my opinion on whether he was a better show runner than writer or vice versa.
Here’s a short snippet from the article:
Aside from making sure that both new and old viewers would watch the show, he also made sure that it was family friendly, just like the Classic Series, which was often watched by the entire family during tea time every Saturday.
When it comes to the effects during Davies’ tenure, many criticize that it had a very campy flavor to it. However, one must remember that the budget back then wasn’t as big as it was now, the technology was not as advanced as it is today, and that the campy flavor only added to the show’s charm, especially for the older viewers who waxed nostalgic for the even campier effects and costumes of the Classic Era.

I hope you enjoy the article, and if you have any comments or want to talk about it more, head over to the main article itself and join in on the discussion in the comments section there.
I’ll be writing for them again some time soon, and this time, I’ll be looking at Steven Moffat himself.
