It was recently revealed that Richard Curtis, the founder of Comic Relief, would be writing a script for the fifth series of Doctor Who. BBC entertainment correspondent, Lizo Mzimba, recently interviewed Richard Curtis regarding his series five script, and the interview was recently posted on the BBC website. An extract from the new interview can be read below:
"I can tell you that it's set in the past, that it features somebody famous, that it features something very nasty, and I hope it will be both scary, funny and a bit touching. Writing Doctor Who is such a joy. I started off, apparantly, over-writing The Doctor a little bit, and I had Steven Moffat come to me and say 'he doesn't talk like that - he's informal, he's modern'. So I've crushed it down and added in a few colloquialisms, and it's really fun."
Richard Curtis also revealed that filming for his episode will begin in November, and that the episode is expected to be broadcast in February 2010.
