Chibnall wrote five episodes of ''Torchwood'''s parent show ''Series/DoctorWho'', including the two parter "The Hungry Earth" and "Cold Blood", which had the first on screen appearance of the Silurians in 26 years, before taking over as showrunner with Series 11. His very first step upon taking over the show was a doozy: making the Doctor female for the first time in the show's history with ''Broadchurch'' actress Creator/JodieWhittaker. After the announcement, he proudly stated that he'd wanted to do it since he first started working on the show. Alongside the casting of Whittaker, other measures Chibnall has taken to reinvent the series have been to redesign the TARDIS shape and interior, redesign the sonic screwdriver, shorten Series 11 to ten episodes and increase the average episode run time to sixty minutes rather than the standard forty-five for the modern series.
