And I laughed, and laughed, and laughed.

I honestly think that Russ is trolling Chibnall and the current production team now.

Will you excuse me? I have to go and chuckle some more.

Thank you.

It's something that is just a bit of fun, as you say him trolling Chibnall and the fandom. But there is a sector of the fandom that takes absolutely everything literally, including this, and I am sure Davies knows it!

He reminds me of Robert Holmes in this, their humour is the same, and Holmes too enjoyed a bit of ribbing of both his script-editors and viewers. ;\)


[It's worth bearing in mind here that for all his occasional modern comments and bowing to the media's questions on the current regime Davies, himself was very much a traditionalist where Doctor Who was concerned, his reign honoured the canon and he didn't show any interest in undermining or subverting it. That began with Steven Moffatt... and it has not ended alas.
Davies' was progressive in his approach to the series, always mindful of the mass audience, and kept any use of old continuity to a minimum. But he didn't have any interest in subverting or discarding the character or the shows well established rules and 'science'...]
