New appointments for the Doctor Who team

Thursday, April 16, 2009

BBC Wales has announced three new appointments to its Doctor Who team. Tracie Simpson, Producer of Planet of The Dead, and Peter Bennett, Producer of the upcoming Torchwood: Children of Earth series, have both been appointed as producers for the fifth series of Doctor Who.

Beth Willis, Producer of the award-winning BBC series Ashes To Ashes, will join lead writer Steven Moffat and Piers Wenger as an Executive Producer.

"Beth and Tracie and Pete aren't the A Team, they're the people the A Team call," said Steven Moffat. "Tracie and Pete are the backstage stars of Doctor Who and having them on board as producers isn't just the best possible news for Matt Smith's first series, it's a massive relief. And Beth Willis, fresh from the brilliant Ashes To Ashes, is joining Piers and I as an executive so finally there'll be someone to wear the trousers."

Matt Smith will replace David Tennant for the fifth series, to be aired in 2010.
