The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, due out later this week, has revealed the titles of every episode in Doctor Who's upcoming series - as well as their writers. Check them out!
DEEP BREATH Written by Steven Moffat
INTO THE DALEK Written by Phil Ford and Steven Moffat
ROBOT OF SHERWOOD Written by Mark Gatiss
LISTEN Written by Steven Moffat
TIME HEIST Written by Stephen Thompson and Steven Moffat
THE CARETAKER Written by Gareth Roberts and Steven Moffat
KILL THE MOON Written by Peter Harness
MUMMY ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Written by Jamie Mathieson
FLATLINE Written by Jamie Mathieson
IN THE FOREST OF THE NIGHT Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce
DARK WATER Written by Steven Moffat
DEATH IN HEAVEN Written by Steven Moffat
Many of these were known already, thanks to the unfortunate leaking of multiple scripts from BBC Worldwide last month, but there's a few new ones here - including Mummy on the Orient Express, seemingly confirming that the episode will deal with that telephone conversation the Eleventh Doctor had at the end of The Big Bang, and the intriguing In The Forest Of The Night. A reference to William Blake's The Tyger perhaps?
Another interesting thing to note is that, for the first time in his run as lead writer, Steven Moffat is getting partial credits on episodes he has re-written. Like Russell T Davies before him, it's been known for a while that Moffat has some times extensively re-written elements of other scripts during his time on the show (RTD goes into it further in the book The Writers Tale - if you're interested in writing in general or that period of Doctor Who, go read it! It's fascinating), but this is the first series in which those partnerships will seemingly be credited to him.
Any that catch your eye? I have to say, I'm pretty excited by something with such a silly and audacious title as 'Kill the Moon'.
Doctor Who returns this Saturday on BBC One and BBC America.
