Working hand in glove with showrunner Russell T Davies, Phil Collinson was the very capable producer who steered Doctor Who through more than 50 episodes from its return in 2005 until 2008, before he went on to head up that other Manchester institution - Coronation Street for its’ 50th anniversary celebrations.

Phil embodies the spirit and verve of the Tenth Doctor’s era and we’re delighted to have him with us for our Ten at 10 celebratory commentaries of School Reunion and Doomsday.
