It's no secret that the turnaround of staff on Doctor Who has gone into overdrive in the last few weeks. As we have reported previously, The costime designer, producer, executive producer and several directors wont be returning for the next series, but now rumours have started circulating that Beth Willis, right hand (wo)man to Steven Moffat has been sacked.
Beth, who only joined the series at the beginning of production on series 5, has apparantly been sacked/asked to leave by the BBC with immediate effect.
Many rumours are circulating as to the reasons behind her possible departure, with main theorists speculating that she was used as a scape goat for many bad desicions undertaken during production, including the disliked redesigned Daleks, budgetary problems, difficulties with the new TARDIS interior and a slight drop in ratings. Many have specualted that she was easiest to pin the blame on, and so was asked to resign.
The other rumour regards the overseas filming of Vincent and the Doctor and Vampires of Venice. According to some sources, Beth employed her boyfriend during the production of this block, then stayed on in Croatia for a weeks holiday once filming had wrapped, at the expense of the BBC. If this is to be believed, the BBC then fired her upon finding out.
It is still unknown if any of this is true, but if it is, regardless of the reasons behind it, it is fairly certain that the truth will be whitewashed and she will be wished well by everyone involved, but as soon as we know the truth, we will let you know.
