(SoapOperaNetwork.com) - The new writing regime of Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell make their first changes to the "Days of our Lives" writing staff.

As expected, Tomlin's long time friend, Fran Myers, returns as script editor. This will be Myers' 4th stint as the "DAYS" script editor: 1999-2003, August-September 2004, and October 13, 2008 - August 25, 2011. Jeanne Marie Ford moves from script editor to script writer.

Breakdown writers Lisa Connor and Elizabeth Snyder have exited the show.
Nice to see someone else hired, that has been fired several times before.
It clearly is a who you know type of business. I still have no faith in the new HWs, they will come in with a bang and end with a bust.
the way I interpreted Tomlin's move was that he wanted to make sure he had someone at the end of the line to make sure that his vision is brought to life to a T. The characters will most likely talk, act, etc exactly like Tomlin wants them to. The only plus to Tomlin not being an EP is that he can't stop the actors from rephrasing while shooting. We'll have to wait and see what happens, but I suspect that the characters we "know and love oh so much" from Higley's reign of terror will be back in full force.
The first thing that comes to mind for me is Bo... the things they had him saying/doing/emotion back in 2010 was so OOC (at least for me)
