Davies On The Romance

From Doctor Who TV, Russell T Davies shares his thoughts on the romance in Doctor Who:

Former Doctor Who lead writer Russell T Davies has addressed criticisms that his era brought about more soap than sci-fi.

Speaking on Toby Hadoke’s Who’s Round, Davies said: “I absolutely think [fans with those criticisms] are wrong. I can understand where it is coming from, but it doesn’t mean I like where it’s coming from. You are looking at a major character in his own show that’s on for 50 years and you’re denying him a full life. You can’t do that.

“Plus, I have to say, what a load of fuss about nonsense! If you added all the kisses and the love lines I think you’d have about 40-seconds of material! Seriously, think about it. It’s not much, it’s tiny. And it very rarely changed the direction of a story. You have to let it move on.”
