Speaking to Tardib (French language site) Mark Gatiss shared his take on the unique challenge of being a recurring writer and writing once again for a new Doctor:

“It is lovely to write for the series when you have never done it before, but to continue to do so and to make new things for a new Doctor, it is a kind of different challenge.”

While on the subject of a different challenge, he was also asked if he would be interested in taking over as head writer if and when Steven Moffat departs:

“Steven will never leave. I hope that he will never leave! I can’t say much about it, life is too complicated and strange to know when this sort of thing will happen.”

The keen amongst you will note that he hasn’t said ‘no’.

According to Variety, Mark is set to join the cast of HBO’s Game of Thrones, which is currently filming its fourth series, alongside Pedro Pascal, in an as yet unannounced role.
