Neil Gaiman plans to write another episode of Doctor Who

By August 14, 2018 News, Television

Neil Gaiman, one of our absolute favourite writers here at For Reading Addicts, has expressed his continuing desire to write more episodes of the science fiction series Doctor Who.

His last Doctor Who episode was aired in 2013; much to Gaiman’s chagrin his plans to write episode for the twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi, never came to fruition. Timing and other commitments (namely Good Omens) meant he had no time for Doctor Who.

The lifelong Whovian spoke to Digital Spy: “If you examine my DNA and you go in deep enough, with a good enough microscope, you’re gonna see a TARDIS, with a little light blinking on the top!”

There are also rumours that Douglas Mackinnon, director of Good Omens, is looking forward to reuniting with Gaiman for a future Doctor Who episode. Mackinnon penned eight Doctor Who episodes between 2008 and 2015 so he is already an old hand at it.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Mackinnon said: “Doctor Who is the one call that I will always take. It’s like a drug. It doesn’t go out of your system.”
