Ninety minutes with Doctor Who’s new show runner Chris Chibnall

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

The announcement of Chris Chibnall as the exec behind Doctor Who after Steven Moffat leaves has left many feeling dazed and confused… mostly because everyone remembers the Torchwood rush-job that was Cyberwoman, and forgets that he also wrote Adrift…. and launched Law and Order UK… and did Broadchurch…

So if you’re at all curious about what he could bring to Doctor Who, may I suggest this in-depth interview with him from Danny Stack’s ‘Scriptwriters in the UK’ podcast. Recorded in May last year it talks about his approach to writing, TV production, and show-running… Listen carefully and you can pull out themes and emotions that Chibnall likes to explore, and I suspect that offers a clue to what ‘his’ Doctor Who will be like.

I’m much more excited for NuWho after listening.
