Russell T. Davies. Has a name like Lynn C. Lohan and Kay T. Holmes. It seems to me that, throughout most of his work, he has trodden down the line between staggering genius and unbearable crap. In some cases, he has straddled the two, in others he’s bunnyhopped from one to the other.
Consider the evidence: Why Don’t You; ChuckleVision; Queer As Folk; Mine All Mine; Doctor Who; Torchwood. See what I mean?
