Steven Moffat And Chris Chibnall Make The MediaGuardian 100

steven moffatEvery year, Media Guardian publishes who, in their mind, are the hundred most powerful and influential people in British media.

At the top, they're usually Americans.

This year, Doctor Who gets two producers in there, Steven Moffat, showrunner of the show, and Sherlock, at number 87, and ex-Doctor Who and Torchwood writer, producer Chris Chibnall at 91, though primarily for his show Broadchurch making such a splash. David Tennant's co-star Olivia Colman in that show, beats them both, appearing at no 71. She also appeared in Doctor Who in Matt Smith's debut, The Eleventh Hour as Mother with rather pointy teeth…

The BBC Commissioner of drama who keeps it all going, Ben Stephenson, is only at no 76…

And a nod to the publisher of my Monday cartoon, Paul Staines, gets in at 92.
