Changes at the Doctor Who office

March 13th, 2013 (05:31 pm)

The official announcement of Caroline Skinner's departure as executive producer:

An odd half-story suggesting disagreements between the two executive producers but not adding any details (ETA: Other sources suggesting it's rubbish):

Eleventh Doctor

I'm suspicious of stories with no details. I think certain parts of fandom like to assume no one would leave Doctor Who simply because they want to develop their careers; rather, there must have been an argument or a quasi-sacking. It's as if they're waiting for another Eric Saward Starburst interview moment.

I find it impossible to evaluate the individual effect of the producers and executive producers (aside from the show-runner) on the finished product, but it seemed appropriate to have someone on the show whose name is an anagram of 'nicer Skaro linen'.

The gossip seems just that...
