New producers announced

BBC Wales has announced the rest of the producing team that will take over from the current producing team. Along with Piers Wenger and Steven Moffat as executive producers, they will be joined by Beth Willis.

Taking over from Phil Collinson in the producer role are two producers: Tracie Simpson and Peter Bennett. Simpson was the producer on Planet of the Dead and has been Production Manager on the series since 2005, while Bennett is producing the forthcoming Torchwood series: Children of Earth.

Steven Moffat said:

“Beth and Tracie and Pete aren’t the A Team, they’re the people the A Team call. Tracie and Pete are the backstage stars of Doctor Who and having them on board as producers isn’t just the best possible news for Matt Smith’s first series, it’s a massive relief. And Beth Willis, fresh from the brilliant Ashes To Ashes, is joining Piers and I as an executive so finally there’ll be someone to wear the trousers.”
