Two fan favorites from Doctor Who production team call it quits

When BBC's Doctor Who announced a female doctor last year, fans were not too pleased with the sudden change. It looks like fans have another reason to be upset with the producers of Doctor Who.

After Doctor Who writers Sarah Dollard and Mark Gatiss called it quits last year, it looks like the show will be losing two more fan favorites for season 11.

Rumor was that composer Murray Gold was making his departure from the series. It was rumored that he had quit after the show's 2017 Christmas special. However, the composer only recently confirmed the news at the Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles.



Murray has been a part of the show since its return in 2005. A fan-run Twitter page confirmed his announcement on their page. No official confirmations have been made about his replacement.

Additionally, writer Jamie Mathieson, who penned the scripts for Doctor Who episodes Flatline and Oxygen has also confirmed that he will not be contributing to season 11.

The writer took to Twitter to confirm the news. Jamie revealed that he had pitched ideas to Chris Chibnall, but they didn't land.



Chris Chibnall is replacing Steven Moffat as the lead writer and executive producer of Doctor Who. Joining him as co-producers are Sam Hoyle and Matt Stevens.

Doctor Who is currently going strong on its 11th season. The new Doctor is played by Jodie Whittaker. She will be joined by a trio of companions, Yasmin, played by Mandip Gill, Ryan played by Tosin Cole and Graham played by Bradley Walsh. The series is set to return to BBC later this year.
