Philip Collinson

Born: Wednesday 26th August 1970 (age: 53)


Phil Collinson is a British television producer best known for his work on Doctor Who and Coronation Street.

Collinson has produced several series for the BBC, including the comedy drama Linda Green, and the first seasons of 1950s-set Born and Bred and paranormal thriller Sea of Souls. In January 2004, he started work as the tenth full-time in-house producer of the BBC science-fiction programme Doctor Who.

While he was an actor, the role of Alexander in the 1999 Channel 4 drama Queer as Folk was written especially for him by his friend Russell T Davies. However, after Antony Cotton auditioned for the production team, Davies and his fellow producers felt they had no choice but to offer the role to him instead of Collinson.

In February 2008 Collinson left his position on Doctor Who, to return to Manchester as BBC Head of Drama for the region.

In July 2010 Collinson joined ITV  as the new producer of Coronation Street. His first credited episode aired on 26 July 2010.
