He did a lot of stupid shit, but he also got Doctor Who back on the air. Then again, bringing back Doctor Who is pretty stupid if you ask certain people.
The RTD Streak Edit
RTD is well known for writing streak after streak of horrible episodes. Only a small list of episodes are worth watching. Here's the list.
He didn't write anything good this season.
The rest of his episodes are trash or so mediocre you won't even remember you watched them.
His longest streaks are a whopping 6 episodes in a row in S1 and S2.
Everything Shit Rusty has Done Edit
- Saved Briggs Finish from being shut down by the BBC
- Brought back Doctor Who (what a cunt)
- forced 10/Rose Romance
- Sex Slave Concrete (wish I had one)
- Human Daleks
- Retconning the Masters backstory down to "LOL DRUMS" and trying to turn him into a sympathetic character
- 10th Doctor saying he "forgives" him and telling how "beautiful" he could be and offers him to travel in the TARDIS forever with him
- Rose not developing at all as a character and still fawning over the doctor even after years away in the alternate universe
- Creating a sex clone of the doctor to pawn off to rose so they can have a happy ending
- Skellington Master
- I'M HUNGRY *riverdances*
If you didn't already know, that is. He's gay. I mean, its a big pretty shocker. All the gay stuff in Doctor Who is SOOO SUBTLE. Especially Torchwood, it just blinks right past you. You never notice it. I for one was shocked, I couldn't believe he was gay. Anyways, he's gay, if you didn't already know. He's gay. Russell T. Davies is gay. He's a homosexual.
Before Who Edit
Davies wrote a Doctor Who novel about David Tyler who lived on a council estate with his single mother and got mixed up with alien vampires.
Meanwhile, Davies was making a name for himself in TV, creating shows in every genre from daytime soaps to soap-like prime-time dramas. Revelations was a soap opera about Ruth Tyler who lived on a council estate with her single mother and got mixed up with lesbian vicars. Queer as Folk was about a gay man named Vince Tyler who lived on a council estate with his single mother and got mixed up with Doctor Who fandom.
Mine All Mine was about Big Clare Tyler who lived in Wales with her single mother and got mixed up with a guy who technically owned the whole city. The Second Coming was about Johnny Tyler who lived on a council estate with his single mother and got mixed up with Christopher Eccleston as Jesus. Bob & Rose was about a gay man falling in love with a blonde named Rose.
Davies finally gave up on recreating Doctor Who as a soap opera about Christopher Eccleston as Jesus, blonde Rose Tyler who lived on a council estate with her single mother and got mixed up with living rubbish bins, and the man who would join them and fall for Rose despite being gay. Instead, he made Casanova, about every woman in the world loving David Tennant and him being so sorry about it, so so sorry, and finally regenerating into Peter O'Toole.
But then, the BBC decided that the only way to stop Mark Gatiss from pitching a new way to revive Doctor Who every week was to have someone else revive it, so Davies had his chance.
