by on Dec.12, 2007, under Television

Piers Wenger, who produced the award winning telefilm Housewife, 49 and the upcoming Ballet Shoes, has been announced as the new executive producer of Doctor Who, taking the reins from Russell T. Davies, who is stepping down. Wenger will take over with the 5th series (set for 2010), and will also become Head of Drama for BBC Wales (which produces Who and its spinoffs) when Julie Gardner steps down in January 2009. Although Wenger’s list of credits is not very long, he was the Head of Development for Grenada Drama until earlier this year when he left to help create production company Mammoth Screen.
