How To Become The Boss Of Doctor Who At The BBC, And What You'll Do When You Are

SONY DSCIf you’d like to be Steven Moffat‘s Executive Producer and receive all the perks that position implies, BBC Wales have just the job for you.

They’re advertising for a new Uwch Gynhyrchydd for Doctor Who. That’s Gallifreyan Welsh for Executive Producer, and I’m glad to see they’re keeping it yn y famiaith.

So, are you “strong editorially, driven, self-motivated, approachable and passionate about making popular, ground-breaking television drama”? Yes, I thought so.

Now, according to this ad, the successful candidate:

must have original and creative ideas for storylines and characters as well as the skills and abilities to communicate these to the team.

You need experience of leading a production team; an eye for detail and be used to working with internal and external stakeholders such as co-producers.  You’ll be privy to confidential and commercially sensitive information so it’s important you understand how to handle this.

In addition you’ll have an awareness of our audiences and the knowledge of professionals within the industry including writers, directors, production teams and actors. This is not your normal 9-5 job, so you will need to be flexible with your time and duties and demonstrate resilience.

Resilience.

Anyhow, here’s what they say you’ll actually be doing.

We are looking for someone with extensive experience in producing complex action packed drama which appeals to the broad BBC One audience, who will help develop, communicate and implement the creative vision for our show.

As Executive Producer you will be responsible to the Head of Drama, Wales, for the editorial, production and financial management of Doctor Who. The successful candidate will therefore have extensive production experience in popular and complex primetime television series and be confident in leading and inspiring a team to create their best work.

Working closely with our Lead Writer you will consistently deliver fresh, original, high quality and high profile episodes of Doctor Who to BBC One.

The job is being offered on a fixed-term 20 month basis – to the end of 2015, it would appear. I don’t know what we can read into that, but let’s have a go anyway.

You have until 11:59 on April 14th to apply. Get cracking.
