Doctor Who series 11 will be “dark, funny, squelchy”

Much like the innards of a Dalek, Doctor Who series 11 will be “dark, funny [and] squelchy”. That’s according to writer Joy Wilkinson, who was named among the show’s new scribes last month.

Wilkinson described her episodes with those interesting three words as part of an interview in the current issue of Doctor Who Magazine [h/t Digital Spy].

In the same article, the other new Doctor Who writers described there episodes like so:

Vinay Patel summed up his contribution as “educational, epic [and] emotional”.

Pete McTigh promised a “creepy, fun, rollercoaster.”

Ed Hime said his stuff on the show has been “really rather spooky.”

Malorie Blackman, meanwhile, said her work on the show is “heartfelt, thought-provoking and timely.” Blackman also said this about working on the sci-fi series:

“Part of the joy of writing for Doctor Who is to try to surprise your audience, no matter what their age.

“I love unpredictability – where you introduce the unexpected, even into a story the audience may already think they know.”

Doctor Who series 11 is expected to appear on our screens “by October.” We look forward to finding out how all these writers’ descriptions compare to our real viewing experience.

We’ll bring you more Doctor Who news as and when we hear it.
