Davies in WelshBookmark and Share

Tuesday, 23 December 2003 - Reported by Shaun Lyon
The Welsh-language magazine "Golwg" interviewed Russell Davies on December 18. Discussing the popularity of the show around the time Tom Baker played the part, "We can do that again!" he says. "It's a lovely old programme but it will be updated. ... I've been a fan of it since I was a very little thing. But over the years it has acquired something of a terrible old name for being a cult, minority. When I was little, everyone used to watch it." A lot of the research work has already been done, says Davies, and he will be starting to write the new series in January. "It will be very traditional, the same old Time Lord, the same old Tardis, the same old adventures in space and time. I'm using the best things it has, and giving them a kick up the backside!" The article also discusses much of the same thing we've heard before: the ideas for the new show and so forth (though we add that this is Davies' words translated from English to Welsh for the magazine, and then back into English for this report.)
