Contact Has Been Made
Previously we had reported that former Babylon 5 creator and showrunner J. Michael Straczynski had expressed interested in taking over as Doctor Who's new showrunner when current showrunner Chris Chibnall departs. And now Straczynski has issued an update on the situation, revealing that contact has been made with the BBC about the soon-to-be vacancy for Doctor Who showrunner.
Replying to a fan who asked what the situation was on Twitter, he wrote, “Contact with the BBC has been made. They’re going through their own process, which began before my tweet, and that has to run its course, but if those don’t pan out and there’s a discussion to be had, they will reach out. Very courteous, so we'll see where their process leads.”
