The BBC Wanted A Baby Doctor Who, Says RTD

Illustration for article titled The BBC Wanted A Baby Doctor Who, Says RTD

It's weird to think of Russell T. Davies as the voice of restraint on Doctor Who, after some of his crazy plot twists. But Davies told the Times that the BBC really wanted to turn the show's time-traveling eccentric, the Doctor, into a little kid. (Or show him as a child?) Says Davies, "It would demystify the Doctor having a boy running around saying, 'I am the Doctor' with a sonic screwdriver." [Times]
