Neil Gaiman To Write Dr. Who

In a gesture of appreciation to the readers and writers of the magazine SFX, Neil Gaiman has shared some very exciting news with them: He is writing an episode of Dr. Who.

We can’t decide whether we’re more surprised that this is happening, or more surprised that it hasn’t happened already, really.

In his own words, “As anyone who’s read my blog knows, I’m a big fan of a certain long-running British SF TV series. One that started watching — from behind the sofa — when I was three.” 

“In about 14 months from now, which is to say, NOT in the upcoming season but early in the one after that, it’s quite possible that I might have written an episode. And if I had, it would originally have been called “The House of Nothing”. But it definitely isn’t called that any more.

Countdown. You’ve got about 14 months.”
