RTD starts Doctor Who show runner tenure by getting into fight with Culture Secretary

(October 9, 2021) Russell T Davies has barely begun his time as the future show runner for Doctor Who, and he's gotten into a political row with Nadine Dorries, the Culture Secretary under Boris Johnson. Ms. Dorries apparently slammed the BBC for its “very left wing, often hypocritical and frequently patronising views.” Of course, Russell T Davies obviously carries an agenda about acceptance of certain lifestyle choices, and of course Doctor Who has throughout its history aired stories making fun of people like Ms. Dorries.

We can expect RTD to launch multiple Doctor Who shared universe shows?

(September 26, 2021) Who among us expected Russell T. Davies to return to Doctor Who?

We are probably meant to take that he will be the Show Runner starting with the 60th Anniversary blow-out, and that the 60th Anniversary show will be something big.

Ingrid Oliver is back playing Osgood in two upcoming Doctor Who games

Young Chris Chibnall views on Trial of a Time Lord likely flavored 13th Doctor

(May 23, 2020) As a young member of The Doctor Who Appreciation Society, Chris Chibnall appeared on TV as part of a panel being interviewed about the controversial Trial of a Time Lord season. That season, and the 6th Doctor's run in general, likely set in motion the changes resulting in the cancellation of Doctor Who at the end of the 7th Doctor's run. What Chibnall said in his chance TV appearance as a 16-year-old Doctor Who fan has interesting parallels to what happened to Doctor Who under his tenure as Doctor Who Show Runner.
