* AliensInCardiff: The trope namer via ''Doctor Who'' and ''Torchwood''. There is a dimensional rift in Cardiff that lets aliens and other entities through, which the Doctor encounters on occasion and Torchwood encounters every episode.

* {{Gayngst}}: While RTD stories are very progressive, even for the era, a major theme in his stories about homosexual love is loss and mourning. His ''Torchwood'' hero, Jack Harkness, is the poster boy for pansexual hedonism, while his lovers (Ianto and Angelo in particular) serve as [[{{Foil}} a cold splash of reality]].

** For one thing, he once said that he didn't like the Master and wasn't planning on bringing him back. Davies also said he didn't like multi-Doctor stories. This has also caused fans to distrust them when he says something sensible and thankfully true like "It's better not to show the Time War."
** Davies used a phony name, an anagram of ''Series/DoctorWho'', during production of the 2005 series to prevent would-be pirates from spotting the tapes. That phony name would later become [[Series/{{Torchwood}} the name of a spinoff series]].
** After [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E13Doomsday "Doomsday"]], he told the press Rose was gone for good. He told Creator/BilliePiper, "See you in two years".
** RTD's still lying in regards to ''Doctor Who'' even after stepping down from it. He said he would never write an episode for Creator/MattSmith's Doctor. Guess who guest stars in the RTD-penned ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' story [[Recap/TheSarahJaneAdventuresS4E5E6DeathOfTheDoctor "Death of the Doctor"]].

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: His take on ''Doctor Who'''s mythos was this. The Time Lords were all wiped out by the Doctor's own hands, leaving a lot of angst on his part, the Daleks were more powerful, deadly, and sadistic than before, and the companion actually had to deal with the consequences of leaving her home and family to travel with the Doctor.


Added DiffLines:

* HotterAndSexier: While never actually explicit, Russell's run on ''Doctor Who'' contained more references to sex than most of the Classic Era, and then he produced ''Torchwood'', which was often ''very'' explicit.

** And in "Recap/DoctorWho2007CSVoyageOfTheDamned" we have Bannakaffalatt.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Some of his more kid-oriented shows, such as ''Dark Season'', ''Century Falls'', and ''Doctor Who'', cover darker elements than you'd probably expect.

* TheUnpronounceable: In ''Series/DoctorWho''. Raxacoricofallapatorius and Bannakaffalatta come to mind.

* TheUnpronounceable: In ''Series/DoctorWho''. Raxacoricofallapatorius A RunningGag in ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Blon Fel Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen from the planet Raxacoricofallapatorius. Getting the planet's name right became a Running Gag.
** The Mighty Jagrafess of the Holy Hadrojassic Maxarodenfoe. This one so stumped Simon Pegg the one time he had to say it that he was told to just say it the best he could
and a roaring sound was added in post-production to cover his very minor mispronunciation.
