Two new writers for Doctor Who series 8
Doctor Who series 8 adds two writers who've never written for the show before...
The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine is landing with subscribers around about now, and as usual, it comes with news about the now-shooting Doctor Who series 8. In particular, two more writers - both new to Doctor Who - have been confirmed as writing episodes for the new series.
First up is Peter Harness. He's previously worked on Frankie Howerd: Rather You Than Me and Case Histories. You can find him on Twitter here as well.
And then Jamie Mathieson, who penned the film Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel is also on board. He's on Twitter here. Both seem to have an episode each, although no details of their exact stories have been revealed.
Doctor Who Magazine is on sale now. It is also very good.
Thanks to the Guv'nor, Blogtor Who, for the heads up.
