Russell T. Davies on Doctor Who and Torchwood has an exclusive interview with Russel T. Davies in which he discusses both Doctor Who and Torchwood. Davies talks life after Who and whether he gave Stephen Moffat (who is taking over as show runner for season 5) advice, what he thinks of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor, the Five part Torchwood Children of Earth event and what the fourth season should be, the return of John Simm as The Master and even Michelle Ryan and Captain Jack.

Here are two excerpts:

ON WHAT HE THINKS OF THE CHOICE OF MATT SMITH AS THE CHOICE FOR THE 11TH DOCTOR …“I think he’ll be wonderful,” says Davies. “He looks wonderful. He’s simply what you want from any actor. He’s intelligent and he can do anything. He looks different in everything he’s ever done. I’m glad they didn’t go with someone older to be honest. I think there’s something in the zeitgeist in Doctor Who these days, and I think Matt has captured that.”

ON JOHN SIMM RETURNING IN THE FINALE AS THE MASTER IF HE DIDN'T REGENERATE ….“He won’t pop out of a box and say ‘I was alive all the time,’ although frankly, that would have been easier,” he says. “We spent a lot of money bringing him back.”
