Moffat Confirms New Writers Joining DOCTOR WHO

peterjennastevenDOCTOR WHO executive editor Steven Moffat revealed that some new writers are lined up for Series 9, which is currently filming two episodes by returning scribe Toby Whithouse.

The Grand Moff told Radio Times:

We’re filming our first two-parter at the moment, which in fact are going to be episodes three and four of the new series, a brilliant script by Toby. Then there’s a couple more lined up from other writers, some new, some old, some middle-aged, frankly. It’s a little bit early to start teasing it but I’m a little bit excited. I think we’ve got some very, very good stuff going on.

What — were you expecting Moffat to name names?
