New Producers on Doctor Who

The BBC recently announced three (3) new producers for Series 5 of Doctor Who (For the full story from the BBC, click here.). They are:

– Tracie Simpson (who produced Planet of the Dead, and has been working on NuWho for some time),
– Peter Bennett (who produced the upcoming Torchwood: Children of Earth, but we won’t hold that against him), and
– Beth Willis, who will act as another Executive Producer beside Piers (Load Bearing) Wenger.

Two questions beg to be asked here. Why does it take three people to fill the one job that departed producer Phil Collinson used to do on his own? And do the new producers know how to mix and serve drinks as well as their predecessor?

The answer to that last question, at least, as ably demonstrated by the video below, is most probably “no”.

(That’s Phil serving Radio Free Skaro’s own Warren Frey at Gallifrey ’09)
