Gatiss, Fay, Confirmed Writers For Series 7

In last weeks newly released Doctor Who Magazine, Mark Gatiss, who had taken over the Production Notes feature, revealed that he would be penning a script for the upcoming seventh series of Doctor Who. While talking about pitching his story to Moffat, he gave three clues as to what it might be about. “Meat”, “Klaxon” and “Vienna”. A story set abroad, perhaps?

Gatiss has previously written The Unquiet Dead, The Idiot's Lantern, Victory of the Daleks and most recently, Night Terrors, as well as appearing in different roles in some episodes including The Lazarus Experiment and The Wedding Of River Song.

This news, although late being posted here, has been on our forum for nearly a week, and response to the news of him writing for the show again has been mainly negative. His previous stories seem to have very much divided opinion.

Gatiss is the third confirmed writer for Series 7, alongside Steven Moffat and John Fay. John Fay has previously written for Torchwood, but this is his first Doctor Who outing. He recently penned episode 9 of Miracle Day as well as two episodes of Children Of Earth, including the now infamous Day 4.
