No, actually it's from the pen of Who Script Editor Helen Raynor (who look a bit like this... http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/news/cul ... 1785.shtml) - who's entrusted with a 2-parter for Who series 3... and yes, it looks like a cracker.

Wow, I'm amazed! RTD has only written one episode for this series (the first episode)? Chris Chibnall seems to be the man, with four episodes (starting with the slightly weak 'Day One').

Interesting list. I've no idea if they plan to do another set of stories next year but those last four stories sound particularly interesting and, probably, revealing.

In the immediate future I too have high hopes for Ghost Machine. Cyberwoman sounds like it could be a bit of a duffer, monster of the week type stuff. Hopefully I'm wrong on that one. It will be interesting to see what Hammond has in store for us, doubtful it will be another ghost story so soon (as I would have probably expected from him given Sapphire and Steel). Probably a bit too obvious to ask him to write such a story.

So, what are the chances that Chris Chibnall and Cath Tregenna are pseudonyms for RTD? :lol: Maybe he even ghostwrote Noel Clarke's episode too?! Okay, maybe not..!

No, Chibnall's for real.

I'm sure RTD's got enough on his plate with Who but all the same I'd imagine most of the stories are from his plot outlines.

Hammond? Faries at the bottom of the garden, I believe.

I believe Chris Chibnall knew and had worked with Phil Collinson previously on the BBc series 'Born and Bred'.
Noel Clarke is a fine writer based on his film 'Kidulthood' - not sure if it's quite the Torchwood/Who genre - but the boy can write. Expect some gritty stuff and a fair bit of 'street' language!

Cath (Catherine) Treganna has mainly credits for Casualty. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0871734/ I think she's part of the Welsh agenda... though I'm sure she's a fine writer in her own right!
