Hailing from a range of backgrounds, tastes and styles, here’s what unites them: they are awesome people as well as brilliant at their job. (It matters!) They love Doctor Who. And they’ve all worked above and beyond the call of duty in an effort to bring audiences something special, later this year.”

Jamie Childs, who directed Jodie Whittaker’s reveal as the Thirteenth Doctor, returns for the opening episode of the new series. Jamie says Doctor Who represents an important part of our television landscape.
“We tend to avoid making many shows in Britain that really allow the audience to properly escape, and Doctor Who has been doing this for decades. So yes, sign me up – I’ve always wanted to be part of that! There really aren’t many shows made over here that allow the viewer to travel to another universe.”

“Doctor Who is an iconic show and one I’d loved as a child, especially when Tom Baker was the Doctor. Space travel has become more a part of modern life and this has opened the door for more human stories to be told amidst the escapist fantasy of saving the world from alien invasion. The aliens are now as emotionally complex as the humans, and I was really excited by that.”
Jennifer Perrott编写、导演和制作了备受赞誉的35mm短片《乌鸦》（The Raven），在完成《神秘博士》的工作后，她接下了即将播出的《杰克绅士》（Gentleman Jack）的导演工作——一部由BBC One和HBO合拍的历史剧，Sally Wainwright担任制作人。Jennifer说：
