After series 8 of Doctor Who had aired, the BBC were unsure as to whether or not Steven Moffat would continue to write for the show, so they hired a substitute writer to write a series they could fall back on, in case Moffat was not to return.

The identity of the writer in question is currently unknown, however a full episode list was recently disclosed:

  1. The Podcaster's Apprentice
  2. The Hater's Familiar
  3. Topic-Wonder the Lake
  4. Before the Attack
  5. The Minor Who Died
  6. The Woman Who Went To Jail
  7. The Australian Invasion
  8. The Australian Inversion
  9. Troll No More
  10. Face the Lawyer
  11. Sammi's Scent
  12. Hate Bent
