Two Writers Confirmed For Doctor Who Series 7

A couple of old hands are back to provide scripts

Toby Whithouse

Being Human’s Toby Whithouse and Camelot’s Chris Chibnall have been confirmed as writers for the next series of Doctor Who (is is seven? It’s difficult to keep track these days with all the extra breaks) in Doctor Who Magazine.

Further to that, Whithouse confirmed to SFX at the Weekender that his script is currently planned as third episode of the new season, and – although he wouldn’t confirm if it was the final Amy & Rory story – he did suggest it would be “one of the final ones” (whatever that means…).

Whithouse has previously written “School Reunion”, “Vampires Of Venice” and “The God Complex” for Doctor Who, while Chibnall, a former showrunner on Torchwood, has written “42”, “The Hungry Earth” and Cold Blood”.

Filming on the new season is due to start on the 20th of this month, and the Chibnall story will apparently feature one of the show’s biggest ever sets.
