Stephen King is one of the most prolific writers in the business and is arguably in a league of his own when it comes to the horror genre.

The series will be written by Moffat and is based on the book of the same name by Audrey Niffenegger. “I read Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife many years ago, and I fell in love with it”, said Moffat. “In fact, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called ‘The Girl In The Fireplace’ as a direct response to it. When, in her next novel, Audrey had a character watching that very episode, I realized she was probably on to me. All these years later, the chance to adapt the novel itself, is a dream come true. The brave new world of long form television is now ready for this kind of depth and complexity. It’s a story of happy ever after – but not necessarily in that order.” Read More
