In an interview with BBC America about his upcoming episode of Doctor Who Series 7 (which we now know is likely to be Episode Three), Toby Whithouse hinted: “My episode is in a genre I’ve never written before — frankly, no one has written in that genre for quite a while now.”
Now, on the Gallifrey Base forums, a poster has claimed that an actor colleague of theirs had with them a audition script page for Doctor Who Series 7 Episode 3, bearing the intriguing title:
This might explain the recently discovered filming trip to Spain that the Doctor Who crew will be soon making for an episode in the next series - quite a number of spaghetti western cowboy films have been filmed in Spain before.
In keeping with Whithouse’s comment, this is certainly a genre that has not been written for TV Doctor Who in quite some time (see ‘The Gunfighters’, if you can), not to mention that it would undoubtedly accommodate the Eleventh Doctor’s trusty Stetson.
Many thanks to Dr Who Spoilers.
