Neil Cross returning to ‘Doctor Who’ for Series 8

Posted Filed under

Cross wrote Series 7’s ‘The Rings of Akhaten’ and ‘Hide’, which aired earlier this year.

The writer told “I am going back. I have got story ideas tucked away, but if I told you about them I would have to kill you. There’s a whole bunch of stuff I want to do. Steven [Moffat] is clearly very busy with the 50th anniversary special and Christmas special, but I have to find out from Steven what his intentions for the Doctor are and what sort of stories he wants me to write.”

Jenna Coleman has confirmed that Series 8 will begin filming at the start of next year.

Neil Cross’s new NBC pirate adventure series Crossbones begins filming next month, starring John Malkovich as Blackbeard.
