So, the news has finally been released. Steven Moffat will move on from Doctor Who after Series 10, with Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall taking his place with Series 11 in 2018.
To discuss a turn of events that seem so late, if they were a train the conductor wouldn’t bother checking tickets, Christian Cawley and James McLean welcome fourth podKaster Gareth Kavanagh to the show this week. We look at the timing of the announcement, read between the lines of the BBC statement, and consider some of Chibnall’s various successes and failures in the past in the world of Doctor Who and beyond.

Listen to the PodKast
There are several ways to listen. In addition to the usual player above, we’re pleased to announce that you can also stream the podKast using Stitcher, an award-winning, free mobile app available for Android and iPhone/iPad. This pretty much means that you can listen to us anywhere without downloading – pretty neat, we think you’ll agree! (Note that it can take a few hours after a new podKast is published to “catch up”.)
What’s more, you can now listen and subscribe to the podKast via our Audioboom channel (formerly Audioboo)! Head to https://audioboom.com/channel/doctorwhopodkast and click play to start listening. You can also comment and record your own boos in response to our discussions! Meanwhile you can use the player below to listen through Audioboom:
