A head writer is a writer assigned with writing the majority of scripts for a television series, particularly those considered the most important to a given series. The duties of a head writer may extend to writing entire seasons of a programme, as Terry Nation did for the first series of Blake's 7. Doctor Who did not have a head writer prior to its return with a a new series in 2005.
