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.”

The trailer is just mostly scrolling explanatory text that explains the apocalyptic plot, can you find the hidden clues? Here it is.
Season one introduced us to Shadow Moon, who the story revolves around as he meets Wednesday, Mad Sweeney and the rest of the gods in what was a visual treat with some fantastic special effects. The adaptation received two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Main Title Design and Outstanding Special Visual Effects and three nominations in the Critics’ Choice Television awards including Best Drama, Best Actor (McShane) and Best Supporting Actress (Gillian Anderson).
I loved the 1980s books but in a scene reminiscent to the show itself, publishers ChooseCo is suing Netflix for $25 million, or the profits for the episode, claiming that the streaming service infringed on its trademarked format for the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch movie.
His stint as The Doctor continued for 7 series- consisting of a massive 172 episodes, and he still remains one of the most popular Doctors to this day. His love for the Whoniverse continues as shown by his latest project- Scratchman- a Fourth Doctor novel that never saw the light of day, until now! The novel is dark, exciting, tense, and just perfectly Who. Tom’s inimitable wordsmithery combined with the gripping plot will guarantee this novel real success.
A few nights ago the final show launched, which meant Number 1 in the Great American Read was announced. It will come as no surprise to many to hear that the number one book was selected as Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, but there were a few surprises throughout the list.
