I remember thinking that 2020 for the new series of Doctor Who seemed an absolute age away when the last season finished but now, hoorah, the Doctor is returning and today we’ve all got the hot-off-the-press news for all the new writers and directors coming our way for Doctor Who, Series 12
With the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, and her friends well on their way to landing back on our screens, the next series sees three new writers have jumped on board the TARDIS for series 12: Nina Metivier, Maxine Alderton and Charlene James!
Also making their debut in 2020 and joining ‘the fam’, are four new directors ready to travel through space and time: Nida Manzoor; Emma Sullivan; Jamie Magnus Stone and Lee Haven Jones. In addition, three writers return from series 11: Vinay Patel (Demons of The Punjab), Ed Hime (It Takes You Away), and Pete McTighe (Kerblam!)
