With the exception of Doctor Foster writer Mike Bartlett, all of the writers working on series 10 have worked on Doctor Who before.
In fact, Rona Munro – who’s penned episode nine – is the first writer from Doctor Who‘s original ‘classic’ run to write for nu-Who, having previously written 1989’s ‘Survival’.
Series 10 of Doctor Who – starring Peter Capaldi, Matt Lucas and new companion actress Pearl Mackie – has been filming since June 2016 and is expected to launch on BBC One in April. (Digital Spy)
