Series 7 of Doctor Who will have two returning writers back on board, it's been confirmed...

Production is weeks away from starting on series seven of Doctor Who. But aside from the fact that Steven Moffat is writing episodes, that Mark Gatiss is penning one, and that there are well-reported changes that are set to happen in front of the camera, we still don't know much about who's writing what.

At least until now. Today, it's been revealed that both Toby Whithouse and Chris Chibnall are penning episodes for the new series of Doctor Who.

Being Human supremo Whithouse, who some suggest is the heir apparent when Steven Moffat gives back the keys to the TARDIS, is set to write the episode currently third in line in the new series. His The God Complex was one of the highlights of the last run for us.

Returning after a long gap is Chris Chibnall, who last penned The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood for Doctor Who, before going off to be head writer on the now-cancelled Camelot show for Starz.

With filming starting, expect the drip feed of guest star announcements to begun in due course, too...
