Gatiss Returning for Series 6

Gatiss in The Lazarus Experiment

Writer, actor Mark Gatiss will pen another episode of Doctor Who, it has been confirmed.

Gatiss, who has been contributing since Doctor Who came back in 2005, penned episodes The Unquiet Dead and The Idiot’s Lantern in the first and second series respectively. He was more recently responsible for this year’s divisive Victory of the Daleks.

The news comes from returning director, Richard Clark (Gridlock, The Lazarus Experiment), who tweeted, “In the thick of Dr Who. New drafts coming along. Mark Gatiss story wonderful”. Clark later added that Gatiss’ story should end up being the fourth episode of Series 6.

Clark is also directing Neil Gaiman’s story which had a story readthrough yesterday.

Neil Gaiman, who is writing episode three, said on his blog, “All I’ll say is that the table read was pretty amazing, the guest star or stars will be fabulous, Matt’s great, Arthur’s wonderful and I never got to say hullo to Karen (who was amazing).”
