Doctor Foster TV show writer and creator Mike Bartlett is sneaking behind the scorned woman’s back with another doctor. Bartlett has been tapped to write an episode of the Doctor Who TV series, in the BBC One sci-fi show’s upcoming tenth season.
Radio Times reports other writers on board for Doctor Who season 10 include Sarah Dollard, Steven Moffat, Frank Cottrell, and Mark Gatiss.
In the US, Doctor Who airs on BBC America. Lifetime just ran the first season of Doctor Foster, billed as Doctor Foster: A Woman Scorned.
Here is more from Radio Times:
Award-winning writer Mike Bartlett is to trade doctors as he steps up to pen a Time Lord adventure for Doctor Who series 10.
The man who gave us Suranne Jones’s unforgettable BAFTA-winning Doctor Foster will write a story for THE Doctor as Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie embark on their first series of journeys through space and time.
Bartlett joins Sarah Dollard (the scribe behind Clara’s dramatic demise in Face The Raven) for episodes in block two of season 10, while Steven Moffat will pen the series opener. The first instalment will be followed by an episode from Frank Cottrell Boyce, who wrote series eight’s tenth offering, In The Forest of The Night.
Mark Gatiss has also confirmed that he’ll write at least one episode of the upcoming series.
Capaldi and Mackie will also be joined on their adventures by Matt Lucas, who will apparently be “sticking around”.
