For the first time in six years Doctor Who will have a female on the writing roster…
Catherine Tregenna has joined the writers for the next season, after she was reached out to by Stephen Moffat. Although, in fairness, Moffat has reached out to female writers in the past who have said no; he maintained that “it’s a priority for them too”.
Tregenna has written on Law & Order: UK, EastEnders and Torchwood.
So it seems that the Master isn’t the only woman who’ll be important to the future of the series, then, huh?
Do you think it matters if there’s a woman writing Doctor Who or does it simply come down to the quality, not the gender?
