According to a press release from the BBC Press Office, John Yorke will be succeeding the outgoing Mal Young as Controller of Continuing Drama Series at the BBC, as well as joint Head of Independent Drama with Lucy Richer. Yorke will be responsible for overseeing all continuing drama series on BBC channels, including the new Doctor Who series. There is no expectation, however, that this will result in any changes for the first series of the show or subsequent years. (Thanks to Steve Tribe)
