Russell T. Davies is returning to Doctor Who to mark the series’ 60th anniversary.
The writer, who was responsible for reviving the BBC series back in 2005 and acted as showrunner until 2009, will once again be in control of the beloved sci-fi show.
Davies takes over from Chris Chibnall, who leaves Doctor Who after spearheading the series through the Jodie Whittaker years. Whittaker herself is also leaving the title role, though a replacement has not been named. It has also been confirmed that Davies has not just been brought back for an anniversary special, but also a “series beyond” any celebratory episodes.
