A bit more news has come to light about Doctor Who series 8, with the reveal of who's written another one of the episodes of the upcoming run. And, it's been revealed, it's Jamie Mathieson.

Mathieson, who is already down for episode eight of Peter Capaldi's maiden series in the TARDIS, has also penned the ninth episode as well we now hear. To the best of our knowledge, though, it's not a two-part story that he's written. Don't be surprised if we're proved wrong, though.

Mathieson, who has previously written episodes of Being Human and Dirk Gently, is making his Doctor Who debut with his two adventures. He also wrote the movie Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel.
