We're just a few months away from our first full series of Doctor Who since 2015 - and the entire writing team for the new episodes has now been revealed. The latest edition of YouTube companion series Doctor Who: The Fan Show confirms that "[episodes six and seven] are written by Steven Moffat and Peter Harness". Harness made his Doctor Who debut with 2014 episode 'Kill the Moon' and later co-wrote the two-parter 'The Zygon Invasion / The Zygon Inversion' with Moffat in 2015.
Joss Whedon writing an episode of Doctor Who sounds like a match made in Heaven – but he's got a few ground rules. Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con's Nerd HQ, the Buffy creator was asked if he'd consider writing for the BBC series. "Check back with me when the Doctor is a she..." he hinted, "...or Idris Elba!" Whedon's the latest big name to throw his support behind the notion of a female Doctor – with ex-Who star Matt Smith recently suggesting that "a lady Doctor could be close".
"Is the future going to be all girl?" "We can only hope." It's official. After much speculation, rumour-mongering and passionate debate about who should take up the key to the TARDIS next, Jodie Whittaker was confirmed this afternoon as the next star of Doctor Who. First of all, let's make one thing clear: Doctor Who is lucky to have her.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
