In an interview with the official BBC Doctor Who website Steven Moffat has revealed who will be taking over as one of the show's Executive Producers following the departures of both Piers Wenger & Beth Willis.
The new Executive Producer will be Caroline Skinner who has previously worked as a producer on 'Five Days' & 'The Fades.' She has also worked as a script editor on a number of other shows as you can see on her IMDB page.
It seems as if outgoing Executive Producer Piers Wenger was somewhat instrumental in Caroline's appointment. Asked how he met her, Moffat had this to say:
It's a funny thing about this show: the people who work on it, get so attached and so passionate about it, they can't just leave - they have to make sure it's going to be okay after they're gone. Just as when Russell was leaving, he sounded me out about taking over, Piers had strong views on who should be his successor. And as soon as I met Caroline, I knew exactly why. It takes a particular kind of person to work on this show - you have to be prepared to work every day of the week, laugh in the face of holidays, and above all, understand that Doctor Who is completely impossible to make and then make it anyway. I could see all that in Caroline - so off we go!
Caroline will be taking up her post almost immediately, working alongside Piers on his last episode as Executive Producer, this year's Christmas Special.
We would like to welcome Caroline to the world of Doctor Who & wish her all the best in her new role.
