Doctor Who’s Executive Producer Steps Down With Immediate Effect

Exterminate... exterminate...

Caroline Skinner has stepped down as executive producer of Doctor Who with immediate effect.

We had heard that Skinner and Steven Moffat enjoyed a very public row at the BBC showcase event last month, and this decision appears to be at least tied into this, if not rooted in it. There have been several reasons for the argument mooted, but as yet I have not been able to verify any of them – so I’m not believing any of them. Yet.

The BBC have just announced that head of BBC Drama Wales, Faith Penhale, is taking over the role for at least the 50th anniversary special. That starts filming on Monday. Recruitment for a new Executive Producer will start imminently.

Skinner will continue working on the BBC Two drama about the creation of Doctor Who, Mark GatissAn Adventure in Space and Time, and will then return to BBC Drama Production.
