Doctor Who Boss Got Offer to Make a Marvel Show, But Doesn't Know Which One

Russell T. Davies is a well-known TV creator, famous for his work on shows like Doctor Who and Queer as Folk. He's making a return to Doctor Who, which many people are excited about. In a recent interview with SFX Magazine, he mentioned something interesting. It turns out he was asked to run a TV show for Marvel, the company behind superheroes like Iron Man and Spider-Man. But there's a twist – he didn't know what the show was going to be about, and even now, he's not sure which Marvel project they wanted him to work on.

"I got asked to showrun a British Marvel show, but [they said] 'We can't tell you what it is,'" Davies explained. The director laughs loudly, "To this day, I watch them and I can't work out which show that was going to be. Obviously planning to make a British Marvel show that I haven't seen. Has that happened?"

Who's Going to Be the Next Doctor in Doctor Who?

Ncuti Gatwa, known for roles in "Sex Education" and Barbie, will be the new Doctor in the 60th anniversary season of "Doctor Who." The show will be led by David Tennant, who played the Tenth Doctor, returning as the Fourteenth Doctor for some special episodes this fall.

"Oh God, what a force of nature. I've caught a little bit of him at work and it's pretty exciting. I mean, what advice would you give someone? You can see Ncuti has so much talent and energy. He's so inspired and charismatic. The thing about something like this is: it's the peripherals, it's not the job. It's the other stuff that comes with it, that I didn't see coming. It's a show that has so much focus and enthusiasm on it. It's not like Ncuti hasn't been in a massive Netflix series [Sex Education,] but Doctor Who is on a slightly different level. It's cross-generational, international, and has so much history, that it feels like it belongs to everyone. To be at the center of the show is wonderful and humbling, but also a bit overwhelming and terrifying. It doesn't come without some difficulties, such as the immediate loss of anonymity. It takes a bit of getting used to if that's not been your life up to that point. I was very lucky that when I joined, Billie Piper [who portrayed on-screen companion, Rose] was still there. She'd lived in a glare of publicity since she was 14, so she was a great guide for how to live life under that kind of scrutiny. I owe a degree of sanity to Billie," Tennant exclaimed in a recent interview.
