    Abstract

    Russell T. Davies is currently one of the most influential, visible creative forces in British television. His work over the last 10 years, including Queer as Folk, Bob and Rose, and The Second Coming, has marked him as a writer of note, while his rejuvenated take on Doctor Who is an enormous hit. At the 2006 BAFTAs, he received the Dennis Potter award for "outstanding writing for television," among other acclaim, and he is one of a new generation of nonperforming stars, a true mover and shaker in contemporary popular culture. Davies is also a thoroughly modern example of a TV writer. A self-confessed television obsessive, he has worked on everything from children's dramas and soaps to literary adaptations, from edgy, confrontational late-night fare to family viewing. The whole of Davies' career is covered here, from early forays in theatre and graphic illustration, through to all of his major television work, from the best known and fondly remembered to the barely seen and swiftly forgotten.
