The first female writer for Doctor Who since 2008 has been revealed.
Catherine Tregenna has previously written four episodes of Torchwood, as well as DCI Banks, The Fixer, Lewis and Law & Order: UK.
Neil Gaiman recently commented that finding female writers for the show was “a priority” for the production team. The only female writer in the past decade has been Helen Raynor, who penned Season 3’s ‘Daleks in Manhattan’ / ‘Evolution of the Daleks’ and Season 4’s ‘The Sontaran Stratagem’ / ‘The Poison Sky’.
The news was confirmed on Tregenna’s online CV.
