2011 Writers Named?

Have several writers for the 2011 series of Doctor Who been discovered? Apparently so according to Digital Spy.

Neil Gaiman - one of few confirmed names for Doctor Who in 2011Paul Cornell (who wrote Father’s Day, 2005 and Human Nature/Family of Blood, 2007) may be returning to pen a new episode as well as Tom MacRae (Rise of the Cybermen/Age of Steel, 2006).

Cornell dismissed the news as “rubbish” when he updated his Twitter feed. So that’s that settled, then…

This is all conjecture at this point as nothing has been confirmed by the BBC or any of the Doctor Who production team. If Cornell and MacRae did produce a script for the new series however, it wouldn’t exactly be a huge surprise but more of a welcome return.  So far, the only confirmed writers for the 2011 series of Doctor Who are Steven Moffat and fantasy author Neil Gaiman (pictured here).

Doctor Who continues this year with a Christmas special and returns in 2011 for a brand new series.

About the Author


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    I reeeeally want Cornell to write a script. He wrote two of the best damn stories of the lot.

    I’ve really got no use for Gaiman but he may surprise me. Curtis certainly did this year with one of the best eps of the season. I’d LOVE for Cornell to come back. Why he hasn’t already is a mystery to me.
