Series 8: The Final Writer?

doctor-who-series-8-teaser-trailerSo far all the writers and directors for Series 8 are known, except for one – episode 10’s. However the final piece of the puzzle may have been revealed.

A report from the Liverpool Echo claims that Frank Cottrell Boyce (Millions, 24 Hour Party People) has written an episode.

Boyce is quoted as saying: “It’s like joining a family. It’s a great thing to be involved with. I grew up loving Doctor Who, and my teenage son was a big fan of it too.

“It’s a pleasure to write it and I’m looking forward to seeing Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor. I’m hoping there’s a bit of Malcolm Tucker in there too.”

The report concludes with: ‘There is talk his script may be a double episode featuring the Daleks.” However this seems to date back to a rumour from earlier in the year. The Daleks are actually thought to be in episode 2, written by Phil Ford.
