Curtis to pen Doctor Who episode

Screenwriter and film director Richard Curtis has agreed to write an episode of the new series of Doctor Who, his agent has confirmed.

There is a short interview Here which suggests that the new series may air in February but this seems far to early to tell.

The Blackadder creator told The Sun newspaper he had signed up for a single show because his children were fans of the BBC One programme.

“It’s tremendously good fun and a treat for my children,” he said.

The 52-year-old is better known for romantic comedies like Four Weddings And A Funeral than for science fiction.

“These days the things you can watch together as a family are much fewer,” he explained of his decision to step on board the Tardis, “so when you get something like Doctor Who or the X Factor, it is such a pleasure to sit down as a family”.
