Doctor Who would be a completely different programme if it wasn't for the group of talented actors and actresses who put so much hard work and effort into producing what we see on screen. Find out about them here.
Steven Moffat was responsible for some of the most acclaimed Doctor Who stories - including The Girl in the Fireplace and Blink - before he was eventually appointed as the successor of Russell T Davies and took on the role of series showrunner and Head Writer in 2008. He began planning his first series straightaway, and it ran from April-June 2010, averaging 7.76 million viewers.
