Russell T. Davies will return as showrunner for Season 14 of ‘Doctor Who.’
In Season 14, Russell T. Davies will return to Doctor Who.
Davies, the writer and producer who helped resurrect Doctor Who in 2005, will take over as showrunner of the long-running science fiction series from Chris Chibnall.
The story was first reported by the BBC on Friday.
Doctor Who was first broadcast in 1963 and ran for 26 seasons. The show was relaunched in 2005, and it will be 60 years old in 2023.
Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker, the first woman to play the title Doctor on Doctor Who, announced their departure from the show in July.
Later this year, Season 13 will premiere.
“I’m ecstatic to be returning to my favorite show. But we’re moving through time too quickly; there’s still a whole series of Jodie Whittaker’s fantastic Doctor to enjoy, with my friend and hero Chris Chibnall at the helm – I’m still a viewer for the time being,” Davies said in a statement.
From 2005 through 2009, Davies worked on Doctor Who. Since then, he’s created and executive produced the shows Wizards vs. Aliens, Cucumber, and Years and Years, among others.
