Mark Gatiss Pens Two Episodes For Doctor Who Series 8

It’s the news that will shock no-one, yet will cause debate for months to come. Mark Gatiss, the man who gave us the triumphant return of the Ice Warriors and the not so triumphant (though in my eyes at least, still very enjoyable) arrival of the new paradigm Daleks, is returning to write two episodes for Series 8.

The former League of Gentlemen star made the announcement while on a promotional tour of Brazil for BBC Worldwide.

On the whole I find this to be rather good news as I’m a big fan of Gatiss’ work both on and off Doctor Who (if you haven’t read his Lucifer Box novels I highly recommend them) and after his work on Series 7 (Crimson Horror was the highlight of the second half in my opinion) he seems to have hit his stride and with the opportunity to write for a new, older Doctor, who has been hinted at being darker, could we perhaps see a glimpse of Mr Gatiss’ love for all things macabre creep into the writing?

What are your thoughts, are you pleased to see him back or would you rather have seen the back of him? Do you think his writing style will be better suited to a darker Doctor? As always use the space below to give us your thoughts, views, opinions or simple mad rants.
