RUSSELL T DAVIES TALKS QUEER AS FOLK AND THE GAY APPEAL OF DOCTOR WHO IN NEW EPISODE OF ‘ATTITUDE HEROES’
One of the most talented screenwriters to emerge in decades, Russell T Davies has been responsible for groundbreaking shows such as Queer as Folk and Torchwood.
In the latest episode of Attitude’s landmark podcast series ‘Attitude Heroes’, Russell opens up about whether he believes LGBT+ representation in TV and film has changed enough.
In episode three – available to listen to and download via the link below – Attitude editor-in-chief Matt Cain chats to Russell in a world-exclusive interview at his home in Manchester.
Sharing intimate details about his life in one of his most honest interviews ever, Russell opens up about experiencing an accidental drug overdose, and discusses how his upbringing helped shape his career, which has seen him work on hit shows Banana and Cucumber, as well as breathing new life into Doctor Who 12 years ago.
Discussing the continued cultural legacy of his iconic 1999 series Queer as Folk, Russell says: “Yesterday, I met a producer who’s 28 years old and who happily sat there in broad daylight in an office and told me to my face that he’d masturbated to my work.
“That’s quite an accolade, I love it.” –
