Channel 4 Orders Russell T. Davies 1980s AIDS Drama ‘The Boys’

Russell T. Davies passion project is finally coming to the small screen. Channel 4 has ordered The Boys, a five episode drama series from the former Doctor Who showrunner which explores the story of the 1980s, the story of AIDS, and the story of three boys, Ritchie, Roscoe and Colin, across the decade. “I lived through those times, and it’s taken me decades to build up to this. And as time marches on, there’s a danger the story will be forgotten", said Russell T. Davies. "So it’s an honour to write this for the ones we lost, and the ones who survived.”
