Fans might see a conection here, Russell wrote the religious fantesy 'The Second Coming' staring Christopher Eccleston. Eccleston of course was the first of the 'new' incarnations of Doctor Who. Russell also worked on the BBC version of Casanova starring David Tenant who just happens to be the second incarnation of our favourite time traveller. Iincidentally, 'Doctor Who' is now produced by BBC Wales, maybe one of his incarnations will one day be Welsh too!

Russell was born in Sketty, went to Olchfa, and in the first episode of BBC's "Torchwood", the first death was in Llangyfelach Lane.
