‘Doctor Who’ new exec promises ‘incredible’ Series 8

Posted Filed under

BBC Cymru Wales announced last month that Minchin (The Sarah Jane Adventures, Wizards Vs Aliens) was to be the new executive producer of Doctor Who, alongside showrunner Steven Moffat, following the departure of Caroline Skinner earlier this year.

The exec told Doctor Who Magazine‘s new issue: “My main job now is staring in awe at the 50th Anniversary Special and wondering ‘How the hell do we follow on from that?! Then, when I stop gawping and wondering, ‘How did they do that bit, and that one, and that bit!’ I will start work on the Christmas episode, written by Steven Moffat himself.”

Hinting at what fans should expect, he added: “A whole new series! But we certainly won’t be releasing the details of that series right now in May 2013. Oh dear, that sounds mean! Well, I can tell you that I have just spent a very happy few days meeting some scarily clever writers, and we have an incredible set of stories to work on. More adventures ahead!”
