As reported in the 4/16 issue Digest — which will hit stands on Friday — DAYS head writers Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas Jr., who joined the show last May, have been replaced by former DAYS Co-Executive Producer and one-time Co-Head Writer Gary Tomlin and former DAYS Co-Head writer Christopher Whitesell. McPherson just tweeted the following: "Thank you DOOL fans. U r the best and we love you! NBC never let us tell our stories. They kept stopping us and changing our direction. Sad."
