Pete McTighe to write more Doctor Who

Writer Pete McTighe (Wentworth, Nowhere Boys, Glitch) will write another episode in the upcoming Doctor Who season.

It will be his second episode for the UK sci-fi after penning Kerblam!

McTighe is currently Executive Producing and writing season two of A Discovery Of Witches.

Three new writers have jumped on board the TARDIS for series 12: Nina Metivier, Maxine Alderton and Charlene James alongside other returning writers Vinay Patel (Demons Of The Punjab), Ed Hime (It Takes You Away).

Chris Chibnall, Showrunner, says: “We’re thrilled that Doctor Who continues to attract some of the most the most exciting and dynamic talent working in television. Along with our returning faces, we’re excited to welcome new members to the Doctor Who family. The Doctor Who team is crammed with British television’s brightest writers and directors: We’ve adored working with them, and can’t wait to show you the explosive stuff they’ve created!”

Jodie Whittaker returns as the Thirteenth Doctor in early 2020 joined by Mandip Gill, Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole.


  1. One of the better episodes (except for that disjointed message of encouraging humans do horrible menial tasks and terrorism works!) of a pretty soulless season. Hope they can fix it in the next series!

  2. So good to see Pete do more good work on great shows. His name (and face) would be familiar to Prisoner fans who bought the anniversary DVD boxsets about 20 years ago when he was presenting introductions to episodes dressed in ‘screw’ uniform.
