The British Academy of Film and Television Arts have recently revealed that Doctor Who’s executive producers Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner will be appearing at an exclusive event next month in London. Both Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner will be appearing at the Princess Anne Theatre to promote the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Specials, The End of Time written by Russell T Davies, which will be their final Doctor Who story.
Russell T Davies, famous for spearheading the revival of Doctor Who in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor, will be leaving Doctor Who at Christmas with The End of Time which sees the departure of David Tennant as well. Russell was awarded an OBE from Queen Elizabeth the II last Christmas time for his services to television drama.
As we head towards the end of 2009 and the final episode of Doctor Who with Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner at the helm, we are delighted to welcome them both to BAFTA look back at the remarkable journey they have been on together as executive producers.
Journalist Caitlin Moran will be talking to Russell and Julie about their 6 year working relationship as executive producers on Doctor Who, the ups the downs, the terrifying responsibility of bringing the show back to a new generation of viewers, the reinvigoration of the Saturday night prime time slot and the emergence of BBC Wales as a major player on the production landscape.
Join us for this fantastic and illuminating evening.
Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner in Conversation will take place on the Fifteenth of December at the Princess Anne Theatre in London with reception starting at 6pm with the conversation starting 30 minutes after. A limited amount of tickets for Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner in Conversation are currently available for the price of £7.50 here on the BAFTA’s official website.
