Author Neil Gaiman has said that he would jump at the chance to write more Doctor Who episodes – be it for Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor, or any future incarnations.
Gaiman is no stranger to the world of Doctor Who, having written two episodes in the past – “The Doctor’s Wife” in which the TARDIS took on a human form, and the Cybermen story “Nightmare in Silver” – both of which took place in the era of Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor and were positively received by fans and critics alike.
Speaking to Digital Spy, the author discussed his possible future with Doctor Who:
“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. So the idea of writing for Jodie, or for her successor, whoever she/he/they happen to be, is…yeah, it’s Doctor Who! You can’t say no. I was so frustrated over the last four years because I didn’t get to write for Peter Capaldi. I even had a planned episode and did not get to do it, because I’ve been making Good Omens and that’s been my life.”
Fans will no doubt be excited by the fact that this seemed to be a matter of “when” Gaiman will return to write for the series, and not “if” – the author has offered up some intriguing and creative ideas for the show in the past, and it will be interesting to see what he offers up in the future.
