As we reported in a @Podshock tweet over the last weekend, writer Neil Gaiman has finally confirmed his involvement in writing an upcoming story for Doctor Who. In a message sent to the SFX Weekender convention this past weekend accepting being awarded 'Best Comic' at the SFX Awards, he acknowledge that he is writing an episode for next year's series of Doctor Who (Series 32, Matt Smith's series 2).
There has been much talk and speculation about him writing for the series, but up until now, it hadn't been confirmed.
The first three episode titles of Series 31 (2010 series) has been revealed in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine according to a story by Digital Spy today.
Those who may consider episode titles as spoilers, read no further.
The first episode featuring the 11th Doctor is appropriately named 'The Eleventh Hour' followed by the episode, 'The Beast Below.' Both are written by series executive producer and lead writer, Steven Moffat.
The third episode is titled 'Victory of the Daleks' written by Mark Gatiss (writer of the 9th Doctor story, 'Unquiet Dead' and actor in the title role in the 10th Doctor episode, 'The Lazarus Experiment').
In a recent DWIN blog post, it quotes Steven Moffat, new series Executive Producer and Lead Writer for Doctor Who speaking of the upcoming series for the year 2010 (Matt Smith's first series as the 11th Doctor) in the latest issue of Doctor Who Monthly magazine:
"It’s Series Thirty-One of Doctor Who, and it's Series One of Matt Smith's Doctor, Those are both real numbers. I submit that 'Series Five of Doctor Who' means absolutely nothing unless you really believe that Matt Smith is the third Doctor. Everyone knows he's the Eleventh Doctor so that means it’s definitely not 'Series Five'. Whichever number you choose, 'Series Five' is the one that's flawed."
"'Series One' is an exciting sentence. 'Series Thirty-One' is an awe-inspiring sentence. 'Series Five' is a boring sentence - and also a complete lie."
Now that the end time has come for David Tennant as the Doctor, or rather, The End of Time, there is a new Doctor in the house, or rather TARDIS… Welcome, Matt Smith.
It is not only a change of Doctors, but with Steven Moffat taking the helm of the series as the new executive producer and lead writer, it is a whole new era for Doctor Who. Expect changes across the board to reflect it.
We have already seen the new logo(s) for the series, the new Doctor debuted in the most recent special, The End of Time, Part 2. Doctor Who Monthly magazine is sporting an updated look, and we expect the same with the BBC Doctor Who website soon as well.
