The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, out today, has some news on the upcoming series of Doctor Who, beginning “around April”. As previously known, Series 6 (or 11.2) starts with a Steven Moffat two~parter set in 1960s USA. Episode Three is written by Steve Thompson (Sherlock: The Blind Banker) whilst Episode Four has been penned by Neil Gaiman and stars Suranne Jones (pictured below), a character that “might just turn out to be an old acquaintance with a new face.” Eps Five and Six (currently titled The Rebel Flesh and Gangers) have been written by Mathew Graham (Fear Her).
The first part of next year’s adventures will end with a Steven Moffat story and begin again after the Summer with Episode Eight, again written by the showrunner. Episode Nine, which was previously four in the running order, is a Mark Gatiss story starring Daniel Mays.
