Russell T Davies is returning as Doctor Who showrunner to oversee the show’s 60th anniversary.
Davies, who is credited with bringing the show back in the 2005, will take over form Chris Chibnall in 2023.
He worked on the show for five years, overseeing both Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant’s time as the Doctor.
“I’m beyond excited to be back on my favourite show,” said Davies. “But we’re time-travelling too fast, there’s a whole series of Jodie Whittaker’s brilliant Doctor for me to enjoy, with my friend and hero Chris Chibnall at the helm – I’m still a viewer for now.”
“As the 13th Doctor prepares to embark on new and extraordinary adventures, the winds of change are blowing… bringing with them news to delight ‘Doctor Who’ fans across the globe,” said BBC director of drama Piers Wenger. “We are thrilled that Russell is returning to Doctor Who to build on the huge achievements of Chris and Jodie. Thank you to the two of them and the team in Cardiff for all they continue to do for the show and hello Russell, it’s wonderful to have you back.”
