This isn’t a piece of news, per se, but it is a fun pic of three showrunners having fun with an evil alien.
Bryan Fuller, known for his work on the shows Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me (both of which he created), and Heroes, was photographed in Los Angeles with Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner, and a Dalek.
If you’re unfamiliar with the last three names, you obviously don’t watch Doctor Who. Davies and Gardner were responsible for the relaunch of the series in 2005, and both were attached to the series until last year, when both decided to move on to other things, leaving an entirely new production crew in charge of the show (a good move, in my opinion). Gardner and Davies then moved to Los Angeles to work at BBC Worldwide America, a branch of the UK television network in the U.S. There, Davies and Gardner orchestrated the Torchwood partnership between Starz and the UK, where the Doctor Who spinoff will be co-produced by both channels and take on a different setting.
So what was Fuller doing with Davies and Gardner? I’d absolutely love it if they were working on something together, but chances are, they were just hanging out. Fuller’s Twitter caption of the photo, “Battling Daleks with Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner,” certainly lends credence to the latter option. However, I’m still holding out hope that maybe the former is true. Having Fuller write for Torchwood would be all kinds of awesome.
