Chris Chibnall talks Cold Blood

SFX have posted an interview online with Chris Chibnall, the writer of the Doctor's current two-part adventure, The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood.

It’s been a couple of years since you finished on Torchwood. How was it coming back to the Doctor Who universe?
It was great and it was unexpected –I thought I’d done a lot of Torchwood and a Doctor Who and moved onto other things, so when Steven [Moffat] emailed it was very out of the blue. He just emailed saying, “the Doctor needs you!” one Saturday morning.

So was bringing the Silurians back your idea or his?
Piers [Wenger, executive producer] said we’ve got one word to say to you, come and meet us next week. I was thinking, what on Earth is that word? Then they said “Silurians” – and that it was a two-parter. That was kind of it, really – Steven said, “I want Silurians and I want a big drill, off you go.”
