Peter Jackson Confirms “Serious” Talks To Direct ‘Doctor Who’ Episode

Peter Jackson Doctor Who

Geeks everywhere might have to sit down for this. Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit) has confirmed that he is in “actually kind of serious” talks to direct an episode of Doctor Who.

Jackson made a brief appearance in fifth doctor Peter Davison’s short, “The Five(ish) Doctors” last month in honor of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Now it seems (and we hope) he is taking his fandom to the next level.

Continue reading to see what he had to say.

“I would be very happy to [direct an episode]. I’d love to try my hand at television, because I’ve never had the discipline of having to shoot for those impossibly tiny schedules. I think I could do it okay now.”

A New Zealand native, Jackson also mentioned he even hopes to film in his home country.

“I did suggest that they did a New Zealand story – something to do with the [rugby union] All Blacks versus the Daleks. There’s a good story in there, although obviously the All Blacks would have to win!”

And if he’s going to do it, we humbly suggest a Neil Gaiman/Peter Jackson collaboration.

Sound off, geeks: what are your thoughts on this development?

    I’d love it if he were to direct an episode!!

  • Andy Barbieri

    Peter Jackson directing an episode written by Neil Gaiman would be awesome! Although due to Gaiman’s schedules etc, wouldn’t happen until after S8. Gives plenty time to thrash out the details!! I can dream.

    PJ is busy with the hobbit films this year so after series 8 would work out great for everyone.
