Trivia (2)

A long-time Doctor Who (1963) fan, his first television appearance was on Open Air (1986) in 1986, in which he was part of a group of fans in the studio who were putting their opinions on the 1986 "Trial of a Time Lord" season of Doctor Who (1963) to writers Pip Baker and Jane Baker.
As the new executive producer and writer of Doctor Who (2005), one of his first acts was to cast Jodie Whittaker, an actress he had worked with on Broadchurch (2013), as the first woman to play the Doctor, thereby transforming the character from a Time Lord into a Time Lady.

Personal Quotes (3)

I used to write plays and go along to the theatre to watch them being performed. With Broadchurch (2013), I've got that same kind of fear, and I've never had that with any other TV show.
[on David Tennant] David's an incredibly brilliant actor. But the tough thing about playing the Doctor, which he did so brilliantly, is that it can be career-defining.
[on Peter Capaldi's final series in Doctor Who (2005)] There is an amazing Doctor, there's an amazing showrunner in Steven Moffat and I've read the scripts for this series and they are phenomenal.
