From July 1988: DWB issue 56 with a front page article that doesn't seem to have generated much traction in DOCTIR WHO history and lore.
It's interesting that even DWB were forced to pay JNT a backhanded compliment by acknowledging all the other aspects of his role on top of actually producing the show. Today, there would be an army of professionale to cover those ancillary functions.
Its also interesting that DWB didn't go inorganic mode at the prospect, however slim, of s producer from the Children's department taking on the show (which, of course, sat within the BBC's Drama empire).
As it turned out, JNT would indeed stick around for another season.
