Neil Gaiman has confessed he would love to write a third episode of 'Doctor Who' starring current Time Lord Peter Capaldi
Neil Gaiman wants to write an episode of 'Doctor Who' for Peter Capaldi.
The author - who previously penned 'The Doctor's Wife' in 2011 and 'Nightmare in Silver' last year - is keen to write another script for the BBC One sci-fi series' current star.
According to Digital Spy, he told fellow writer Audrey Niffenegger at a Q&A in New York: "Whenever I'm in the UK, I sneak into meetings with [the production team]. They say, 'Can you do another one?!' and I say, 'Yes! But not yet!'"
"Now I'm just sort of hoping that I can get one done while Peter Capaldi is still the Doctor, because it would be a very sad thing if I lost my chance to write for a grumpy, Scottish Doctor."
The British-born novelist wants to return to write for 'Doctor Who' as he believes there are "boxes left to tick" that haven't featured in his previous efforts.
He explained:"I haven't done an episode set on Earth yet, and I haven't created a new monster.
"So there are boxes left to tick. And there's part of me that feels... I haven't scared anybody yet. I'd love to do something that sends adults behind the sofa too and makes them wee."
