    The series was always run by a staff producer of the BBC. The producer was assisted by a script editor, who was responsible for commissioning scripts and performing rewrites. Both Peter Davison and Steven Moffat have said (on Come in Number Five (2011) (V)) that the series would have been better if it had been produced by a writer, which they said was one of the greatest strengths of the revival Doctor Who (UK) (2005), which has a writer as executive producer and "showrunner" in the style of American television. Moffat said the script editors on the original series were "way down from where they should have been" in making creative decisions about the production of the series, while Davison said that he felt his producer, John Nathan-Turner, wasn't qualified to guide the series properly because he wasn't a writer and that's why he was dissatisfied with the standard of much of the writing on the series during his tenure as the Doctor.
