“A character in a TV show–even in a novel–is not as full a thing as one in real life. They aren’t; I mean, people in real life are about twenty different  people in a given day depending on who they’re talking to. 

It’s more–I think a character in a TV show is more like a fully-realized, detailed attitude: a person of that type.”


– Steven Moffat, BBC Writers Room (Feb 2013) [x]

Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson bringing adventure, romance and terror in their wake. This is the story we’ve been telling from the beginning. A story about to reach its climax…

STEVEN MOFFAT’S NEXT SEASON OF DOCTOR WHO WILL BE HIS LAST, CHRIS CHIBNALL IS NEW HEAD WRITER AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

After six incredible seasons at the helm, the multi-award winning Steven Moffat has decided to step down as the lead writer and executive producer of Doctor Who.

Steven took over the reins on Season 5 in 2010 and during his tenure the show has become a truly global success. He has been responsible for introducing the Eleventh and the Twelfth Doctors in Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi; as well as two companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and iconic characters and monsters including River Song (Alex Kingston), Missy (Michelle Gomez), Rory Pond (Arthur Darvill) and the terrifying Weeping Angels. Plus, the smash hit 50th Anniversary special in 2013 which saw fans around the world celebrate the world’s longest running sci-fi series with the Doctors, Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt battling the deadly Daleks in a feature length episode. 

Steven Moffat says: “Feels odd to be talking about leaving when I’m just starting work on the scripts for season 10, but the fact is my timey-wimey is running out. While Chris is doing his last run of Broadchurch, I’ll be finishing up on the best job in the universe and keeping the TARDIS warm for him. It took a lot of gin and tonic to talk him into this, but I am beyond delighted that one of the true stars of British Television drama will be taking the Time Lord even further into the future. At the start of season 11, Chris Chibnall will become the new showrunner of Doctor Who. And I will be thrown in a skip.”

Like Steven, Chris Chibnall is also a lifelong Doctor Who fan and a multi-award winning writer and executive producer. He has most recently achieved huge success with the triple BAFTA winning hit series Broadchurch. His other credits include BAFTA nominated The Great Train Robbery, United, Law & Order: UK, Life on Mars and Torchwood. Chris Chibnall’s debut season will launch in 2018.

Chris Chibnall, new Head Writer and Executive Producer: “Doctor Who is the ultimate BBC program: bold, unique, vastly entertaining, and adored all around the world.  So it’s a privilege and a joy to be the next curator of this funny, scary and emotional family drama. I’ve lovedDoctor Who since I was four years old, and I’m relishing the thought of working with the exceptional team at BBC Wales to create new characters, creatures and worlds for the Doctor to explore.  Steven’s achieved the impossible by continually expanding Doctor Who’s creative ambition, while growing its global popularity. He’s been a dazzling and daring showrunner, and hearing his plans and stories for 2017, it’s clear he’ll be going out with a bang. Just to make my life difficult.”

Steven’s final season will air on BBC AMERICA and BBC One in Spring 2017 and there will be a Christmas Special in 2016. [x]

Yes. We decided that the new companion was going to be non-white, and that was an absolute decision, because we need to do better on that. We just have to. … I think I had this baffling idea that if we just threw open each part to everybody, it would work out in the end. I put my faith, inexplicably, in the free market. I don’t know why, I of all people would do that! It doesn’t work. You can only cast for talent – you’ve got to cast the best person, every single time – but you’ve got to gauge where you’re looking for that talent.  …  Sometimes the nature of a particular show – historical dramas, for instance – makes diversity more of a challenge, but Doctor Who has absolutely nowhere to hide on this. Young people watching have to know that they’ve a place in the future. That really matters. You have to care profoundly what children’s shows in particular say about where you’re going to be.
—  Steven Moffat on the casting of Pearl Mackie and Diversity in the BBC (Doctor Who Magazine #500)
We did one scene. A big big scene, a sort of six or seven page scene. With lots of the cast in it. And what we always do is have a, what we call a crew show, where it’s been rehearsed, for most of the morning, and then we show it for the crew before we actually film it. And we did this particular scene and at the end there was a silence. And then everyone just burst into a round of applause. It was extremely affecting and strong stuff, so. Very exciting.
