Doctor Who boss opens up about Disney involvement

Doctor Who Fans can’t help but rejoice over all the wonderfully pleasant developments over the past year. Russell T. Davies not only returns to the series after more than a decade, but he returns in style by reviving David Tennant’s 10th Doctor. At the same time, many people are concerned about the BBC’s new partnership with Disney, thinking that Mouse House’s involvement in the show will give them an inevitable creative contribution and thus an absolute disaster.

Luckily, Davies just put our minds at ease by addressing this collaboration in a new interview. However, when the Whovians breathe a sigh of relief, another fandom goes to war over which film was the absolute worst in the DCEU cast.

Secretly reimagining a beloved classic, this sci-fi disaster is praised with hindsight

Maybe no movie is ever really bad since it just takes a little time for people to change their minds about a particular flop. Take all the controversial or critically panned flicks that have become cult classics after a few years. It’s not that anything has really changed about them, it’s just the fact that our perspective has changed.

Now, such a cinematic catastrophe of epic proportions that secretly reimagined Casablanca is earning fresh praise on social media. Barb Wire is an absolutely awful movie by all accounts, but maybe we treated it a little too harshly.

Zack Snyder could get a lot of flak for that Batman vs Superman or even his justice league, but it’s not like he’s the only filmmaker in the DCU to have dropped the ball rather disastrously in the past. In fact, the fans are now torn Black Adam and Wonder Woman 1984 in a debate to determine which movie is the absolute worst piece of hot junk DCU has produced to date. WW84 is the franchise killer leading the voices, but Black Adam also gets its fair share of haters. Whatever you’re going to do, James Gunn, you better do it now.

Doctor Who will always be the show you know and love, according to Russell T. Davies

The returning executive producer continues to detail his plans to make Doctor Who a global phenomenon. Not that it isn’t already, but with Disney coming on board to oversee the show’s streaming debut, we can expect huge numbers to pour into the Whovian sill in the near future. However, the American conglomerate’s involvement in the story and direction could still be a cause for concern. Thankfully, Davies has assured us that the way they work hasn’t changed and never will.

“I know people are naturally concerned that American producers have notes on things. Well don’t be. They give excellent grades,” he said Doctor Who Magazine. “And I’m here to tell you that it’s been 20 years since you’ve seen a drama on British television that doesn’t have American sheet music. Everything is a co-production… it’s really quite normal. If you want even more reassurance, let me just tell you that we are about to televise the words ‘Mavic Chen’ for the first time since 1966. It’s absolutely the same show.”
