Chibnall on Show Criticism: “I don’t read reviews”
Back in the 80s, a young Chris Chibnall went on TV and gave a critique to then Doctor Who writers Pip and Jane Baker. But as showrunner now, he admits he stays well away from any fan criticism.
Chibnall told Doctor Who Magazine: “I’m not on social media, I don’t read press coverage and I don’t read reviews.”
He continued: “The one thing you can say about every series of Doctor Who that’s ever been made is that some people liked it, some people didn’t. That will be true forever.
“What you have to do is make the show you believe in, hope that it connects, then go home. If we allow other things in then we’re not making our vision.
“In terms of external opinions, it’s not a democracy. We make the show we want to make.”
