Personal Quote:

I used to write plays and go along to the theatre to watch them being performed. With Broadchurch (2013), I've got that same kind of fear, and I've never had that with any other TV show. See more »

Trivia:

As the new executive producer and writer of Doctor Who (2005), one of his first acts was to cast Jodie Whittaker, an actress he had worked with on Broadchurch (2013), as the first woman to play the Doctor, thereby transforming the character from a Time Lord into a Time Lady. See more »
