A fantastic genre writer and a potential Moffat successor have been confirmed as writers for Doctor Who Series 7!
Doctor Who Magazine reports that returnees Chris Chibnall (Torchwood) and Toby Whithouse (Being Human) have been drafted in for the next run of the Time Lord’s adventures. Between them, they have brought back old friends, seen the battle for ownership of the Earth reach a testy alliance between humans and Silurians, seen Venice under the rule of non-vampires and saved a hurtling spaceship from an alien sun (don’t forget the Cyberwoman – Ed).
While nothing has been confirmed about their episodes Whithouse confirmed at the SFX Weekender that his would be the third in the series and could be ‘one of the final ones’ for Amy and Rory – which is exactly what the other thirteen episodes could be.
Still, Chibnall’s episode is said to feature one of the biggest ever sets used in Doctor Who – so at the very least, it’ll have scope.
Filming on the new series is due to commence on the 20th February.
