Peter Harness Writing for Series 8?
So far all the announced writers for Series 8 have already written for Doctor Who before, but some new blood could be on the way.
Evidence is mounting that Peter Harness – writer of Wallander, Case Histories and the upcoming BBC adaptation of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell – is working on a script for the show.
It is unclear whether this will definitely make to Series 8. As we know from the past, scripts are prone to being shifted about.
Harness is a fan of the show. In a past interview he stated that he considered 2005’s The Parting of the Ways the “perfect end to what is I think the definitive series of Doctor Who.”
Harness would join Steven Moffat, Phil Ford, Mark Gatiss, Steve Thompson and Gareth Roberts in the line-up so far.
