Two new ‘Doctor Who’ episode titles and writers confirmed for Season 9

Being Human writer Jamie Mathieson will return to Doctor Who next season for an episode co-written with Steven Moffat.

Mathieson joined the Doctor Who writing team last year with ‘Flatline’ and ‘Mummy on the Orient Express’.

He told CultBox last year: “If my computer ever gets hacked, there’s massive folders full of Doctor Who ideas! I’m a massive nerd, so I’ve been thinking about aliens and robots and ghosts since I was about 5 – there’s a whole life of me thinking about this kind of stuff.”

His new story is titled ‘The Girl Who Died’ and is believed to be Season 9’s fifth episode.

As previously rumoured, Catherine Tregenna will make her Doctor Who debut with ‘The Woman Who Lived’, thought to be Season 9’s sixth episode. She is the show’s first female writer since 2008.

Tregenna has previously written four episodes of Torchwood, as well as DCI Banks, The Fixer, Lewis and Law & Order: UK.

‘The Girl Who Died’ and ‘The Woman Who Lived’ will be directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark).

It was announced this morning that Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams will guest star in Season 9, although it has not been confirmed which of the two episodes she will appear in.

    Holy shit Arya Stark in Doctor Who? I can die happy

  • Joe

    I wound if these episodes could be connected (Not like a two parter but have similar themes etc….)

  • Lightproud

    With Maisie Williams being announced and now the title of two new episodes it has me thinking could she be the Girl Who Died?

  • James Grayh

    Stick ’em with the sonic end

  • Kat

    Maybe the “girl” (aka Impossible Girl) who dies will become the “woman” who lives…..as in Clara’s farewell leading to a normal life, not “dead” but just grown up and able to recover from her addiction to the Doctor? Who knows?
