that's 'sir doctor who' to you

Russell T. Davies, the brilliant writer and producer behind the resurrection of Doctor Who, has been named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire. Sadly, Davies will be stepping down as show runner for the fifth season, but hopefully he'll keep contributing as a writer.

Davies will be succeeded by Stephen Moffat, who's brought us some of the creepiest Doctor Who episodes: "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances," "Silence in the Library/The Forest of the Dead," and "Blink" (for which he was nominated for a Nebula Award, but lost to Pan's Labyrinth). I'm curious to see just how dark the show gets.
