Actually, The Deep Time-Caretaker of Sherwood Listens Into the Dalek sounds damn fine.

I'll be honest - it's Time Heist for me. Everything we've seen about it is hugely appealing and I hope Stephen Thompson can produce a really good script (the two before were iffy for me) for the Twelfth Doctor and Clara. Also, Listen looks intriguing purely because those who read the scripts said it's the best out of the lot. Robots of Sherwood is another Gatiss special that looks like it could be great fun.

@TardisBoy I couldn't have put it better myself. There's so much talent on the Internet and not all of it gets showcased so it's lovely that DWTV has dedicated a whole post every week, appreciating all the brilliant creations of Who fans; it's just another thing I adore about this site.

Brilliant jibe at the "Capaldi is too old" complaint with the "carer" line and turned into a genuinely laugh-out-loud moment. Such wonderful witty dialogue - I really have high expectations for this series.

3 weeks, 5 days ago on 12th Doctor Story “Lights Out”

@theuntaintedchild Well, the BBC officially sanction the release of scripts to authors tasked with writing for a Doctor yet to be onscreen - in this case, Holly Black along with Mike Tucker, Justin Richards and James Goss. The latter three will have completed their full length books a while ago but they'll have seen many scripts and clips to base the characterisation on. Really, if you're a good enough writer then you can use this tiny snippet alone and nail the character. And no, the release of the scripts aren't connected to the leaks (that was an admin error). Tommy Donbavand, who wrote for Clara in Shroud of Sorrow (before she started as a full-time companion in The Bells of St. John), said to me once that he had to sign several contracts when he was given scripts, and he couldn't tell anyone which scripts in particular. To conclude, it's not really that hard to write without seeing a character, especially Doctor Who when you have all these interviews describing the characters, direct access to the scripts and sneak peeks at clips. Hope this helps.

@Time_And_Space_Pirate I wouldn't be too certain. Black might have been allowed to see footage of him or she might still be writing it by the time Deep Breath hits screens. It'll be the same case with Justin Richards, James Goss and Mike Tucker.

I must admit I was a little crestfallen when I found out the news. Black is a big name, yes, but, really, given that they're releasing 500 pages of already published material again then she really would have to be a big name in order to merit that. They should have just published it separately as an e-book.

@TheNightmareChild sees into your soul! What I liked so much about Engines of War was that it felt very self-contained and ended before it could give too much of the Time War away. It's clear that Mann sat down with one goal and that wasn't to explore every single aspect of the War.
