Confirmed: Sharon Miller departs as Head Writer

It has been now been confirmed by SiF that Head Writer of Thomas & Friends, Sharon Miller has stepped down from her role.

Miller is no longer the Head Writer and has been replaced by Writer and newcomer to the series, Andrew Brenner.
Brenner's confirmation as Head Writer can be seen publicly on his Linked in profile.

Season Sixteen premieres later this year in Autumn/Winter time.


  1. Today is the best day ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. It's about freaking time! Good riddance to Sharon Miller and her rhyming!

  3. In my opinion, this could be both a good and a bad thing. Sure she was awful but she did know a lot of the older characters which I'm sure she was going to re-introduce. I actually hope that she remains an episode writer but a new head writer is the way forwards I think. At least she wouldn't be writing as many episodes!

  4. I'm really glad to hear this. Let's all hope Andrew will be able to write some good stories which do not all contain the "Three strikes and you're out" thing and do not have rhyme after rhyme after rhyme.

  5. @SteamTeam The only classic characters she bought back were Oliver and (I suppose you could probably count) Arthur.

  6. Woah, woah, WOAH! What was that about Sharon Miller not being Head Writer? BRING OUT THE CHAMPAGNE!! THIS CALLS FOR A CELABRATION! No, no I'm only kidding. I'm glad that she's not Head Writer anymore but I'm also glad that she didn't quit her job at HIT Entertainment FOR LIFE. She sometimes did poor stories but some of her work was the best (e.g. Jumping Jobi Wood, Edward The Hero, James To The Rescue, Stop That Bus and Stuck On You). Though, she does GREAT work as the Voice Coach! Let's hope that Andrew Brenner can do a even better job than Miller.
