The Welsh writer created gay dramas Queer as Folk and the recent Channel Four smash It’s A Sin. He also help reboot Doctor Who and gave pansexual character Captain Jack his own spin-off, Torchwood, complete with a textured gay love affair with Ianto Jones.
Davies has spoken out today about why Star Wars’ Luke and Han were clearly a couple all along.
Davies insists George Lucas’ original 1977 space opera is loaded with lots of hints that the heroic pair, played by Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, were actually in a homosexual relationship.
According to the Daily Star, Davies reckons that the pair definitely “got frisky on the Millennium Falcon spaceship.”
He said: “It was happening, I’m a writer, I’ve written those scenes, they were banging away!”
Carrie told the crowd at the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo: “He wouldn’t take me on that hyperspace thing enough… [that’s a] euphemism. Not enough. You know, we’ve been together a while.”
And by euphemism, yes, she’s referring to sex. Asked if the ‘hyperspace’ “gets old” after that long together, Carrie shot back: “No, no it doesn’t.”
However, it was her sci-fi solution to ageing sex drives that really tickled the fans when she teased: “We’ve got robots for that.”
She also cited the typical complaints in most marriages that one partner spent too much time at work or with their friends (hairy or otherwise).
Carrie added: “He smuggled way too much. And girls, I know you don’t want your husband smuggling, do you? Hanging out with the hairy guy (Chewie) too often. I think there are a lot of problems with that.”
