How quickly people turn on Davies,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Complete BBC Series 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
I'm trying to figure out the hate for the man who's at the core of this great series...even the worst written episode of the Eccleston and Tennant runs is much better than most things available in the US or UK...and that episode wasn't written by Davies.
While this review is only written halfway through Tennant's first run as the Doctor, the series continues to be fantastic. Tennant has managed to top Eccleston (which is no easy task), and Billie Piper has some excellent moments (especially playing dual roles in New Earth)...although Rose isn't written nearly as well in the middle episodes. We get some great villians (sadly, Tony Head was not The Master....here's hoping his character isn't dead), a fantastic reimaging of the Cybermen, and a damn good werewolf for a TV show.
There's even an unintentional drinking game...every time Torchwood is mentioned, take a drink.
We're in good hands with Tennant, Piper, and the entire crew, from writers to production.
Yes, even Russell T. Davies.

I've been re-watching the series and I have to agree that torchwood is mentioned all the time. It's sort of like the bad wolf of the second series.
