Davies was actually good overall, apart from writing the resolutions to his OMGSUPERAWSOME two-parter series finales (and the end of time, yeah he kind of went a bit nuts at the end). So far as characterisation and interesting ideas went he wasn't bad in Dr. Who.
And all the 'NERD RAGE RAR!! RUINZED 4 EVUUUUR!!!' aimed at him has died down a lot since he left, with Matt Smith and Steven Moffat in the firing line for a long while now.
Of course, he was also responsible for the abomination that is Torchwood, the show that just wouldn't die no matter how bad it got.
Chris Chibnall was responsible for a lot of Torchwood
's abject shiteness, however RTD's Children of Earth
mini-series was genuinely excellent (but it got a bit rubbish again with the slick, but padded out Miracle Day
Ignoring Rusty's involvement for a second, based on the description alone: this sounds like standard godawful CBBC kid-fodder.The Sarah Jane Adventures
was s CBBC series and while you could tell it was made on a low budget, it was actually well made and reasonably scripted. It found its footing quicker than Torchwood
did and was generally more even in quality as well, with its stronger stories better than NuWho
's weaker episodes. Its successful run was stopped only by the sad, relatively premature death of its leading actress. The production team that made The Sarah Jane Adventures
are making this upcoming series.
