Doctor Who writers past and present have shared a photo together after Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat attended a performance of Chris Chibnall's new play.


Recently returned showrunner Davies posted the image to his Instagram page alongside the caption: "A marvellous night out in Salisbury to see Chris Chibnall’s wonderful new play, One Last Push."

And he added: "Also, we plotted Zarbi vs Garms", referencing two classic Doctor Who monsters.

Chibnall served as showrunner on the sci-fi juggernaut between 2018 and 2022, while Moffat had a long stint at the helm between 2010 and 2017, with Davies's two terms as series boss bookending their tenures.

And fans clearly enjoyed seeing the trio spending some time together, with one Whovian commenting on the post: "Honestly I would love to see an episode of Doctor Who or even a whole series co-written by all 3 of you together.

"I genuinely think the 3 of you working on it would not only just be the coolest thing to see happen but I’d love to see the stories you guys come up with."

Meanwhile, another fan added: "Wonderful chaps, all of them" – a reference to a line from the classic Who episode The Five Doctors.

One Last Push – which is described as "a raucous new comedy" – premiered at the Salisbury Playhouse last month and has just finished its run.

The synopsis reads: "Jen and Mark have done the NCT classes. They’ve written the birth plan, in precise detail. They’ve even got the birth pool ready in the living room of their new flat. Almost. Everything is set for the perfect, calm, idyllic home birth.

"Except they’ve reckoned without intrusive family, nosy neighbours, uninvited guests and a new flat full of unwelcome surprises."

Doctor Who will return in May 2024. Doctor Who is available to watch on BBC iPlayer and on BritBox – you can sign up for a 7-day free trial here.
