Whithouse Hints at Series 7 Episode

Doctor Who writer Toby Whithouse has promised more variation in the stories for Series 7 and something very different for his own episode.

“Certainly on [Series 7], the episodes are much more standalone and, in a way, more distinct from each other,” he explained to BBC America.”You’ll have episodes, but they’ll be much more of a specific genre. And the next week will be a different genre.”

“My episode is in a genre I’ve never written before — frankly, no one has written in that genre for quite a while now. But I absolutely love it. Steven gives me a one-line pitch, and then I’ll go away and put together a story and so on. And he gave me a great one-line pitch for this, so I’m really excited about it.

He added: “Doctor Who is always a joy to write. It never gets boring, it never gets dull, it never gets routine. It’s an incredibly difficult show to write because it’s remarkably complex, but it also has to have such momentum and pace. And within that there has to be room for character and humor and so on. It’s always a huge challenge but always extraordinary fun. That’s why I keep going back.”

Whithouse has written three episodes since the show returned: School Reunion, The Vampires of Venice and last year’s The God Complex.
