Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker and Showrunner Chris Chibnall Out
Doctor Who Adds Game of Thrones Vet and Releases Season 13 Teasers
Whovians, your next showrunner has been determined – and none other than Russell T Davies, the man responsible for the 2005 Doctor Who revival, is returning to the series to succeed Chris Chibnall, said the BBC announced on Friday.
Chibnall announced his exit in July (along with that of current Doctor Jodie Whittaker). The upcoming season 13 (which will air later this year) and a trio of full-length specials (which will be released in 2022) will serve as her swan song.
Davies helped make the show the global phenomenon again which she has since become. During his tenure, he also created two spin-off series: Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. His return to the series will be in time for the franchise’s 60th anniversary.
« It is monumentally exciting and fitting that one of the UK’s screenwriting diamonds is returning home on Doctor Who’s 60th birthday, » Chibnall said in a statement . « Russell built the baton to be returned to him … and let’s face it, everyone around the world has so many reasons to be ‘very excited’ about what’s ahead. »
« We’re very excited for Russell to return to Doctor Who to build on the tremendous accomplishments of Chris and Jodie, ”said Piers Wenger, director of the BBC drama. “Thanks to them both and the Cardiff team for all that they keep doing for the show and hello Russell. It’s wonderful to have you back. ”
Whittaker’s run as Time Lord will have lasted three seasons before she left, the same length as six of her seven youngest predecessors. To date, Doctor Who’s first female lead has appeared in 22 episodes, with another six on the way once Season 13 comes out. (An exact premiere date will be announced.)
