Doctor Who: Steve Thompson series 8 episode confirmed
Steve Thompson is confirmed to be returning as a writer on Doctor Who series eight...
Steve Thompson is the elusive third ingredient in the Sherlock pudding, writer of superb series two finale, The Reichenbach Fall, and the Doctor Who scribe behind Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS and The Curse Of The Black Spot.
According to Doctor Who Magazine, he will be penning episode five of Doctor Who series 8.
Also, Steven Moffat is now confirmed as the writer of episodes one and four in the forthcoming eighth series, Peter Capaldi's first stretch in the TARDIS.
The series eight episode titles are yet to be officially announced, but we know the first was directed by Ben Wheatley. Douglas Mackinnon, who's been behind the camera recently on the superlative Line Of Duty, is thought to be directing the block two episodes, potentially including Thompson's number four.
Thompson, who's written for Who series six and seven, was rumoured to be returning for the next run, but this is the first official confirmation of the news.
