Extant Creator Inspired By Doctor Who

Toby Fisher, creator and executive producer of the new American series Extant, calls himself a ‘big Doctor Who fan’ and looked to its showrunner for inspiration.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Fisher admitted:

“I had a Post-it-Note on the corner of my monitor that said, ‘WWSMD; what would Steven Moffatt do? ‘The answer was always, ‘He would just write it better’, so I kind of just kept trying to do that.”

Another of the programme’s executive producers, Steven Spielberg,  is also a Doctor Who fan.

Extant, starring Halle Berry will air in the US on CBS and will be available on Amazon Instant Video in the UK.
