Is Neil Gaiman on Board?

Den of Geek have restoked the “Neil Gaiman Scripting Doctor Who in 2010″ fire with a report following the writer’s appearance on BBC Radio Two’s Jonathan Ross show on Saturday morning (May 9th, available on BBC iPlayer).

Neil Gaiman is of course the writer behind some of the most popular fiction of the last 30 years; the novel and TV series Neverwhere for instance, as well as the comic books Sandman and Stardust (the latter of which was adapted into a 2007 blockbuster movie).

With no writers other than Stephen Moffat yet confirmed (although Mark Gatiss is heavily rumoured), comic book and Doctor Who fan Ross asked Gaiman if he would be interested in writing a Doctor Who script for 2010.

The topic of Doctor Who was raised by the broadcaster and when queried about his possible involvement the author enigmatically replied, “It would be nice.”

It certainly would. With time ticking by and the first scenes to be filmed featuring Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor, it won’t be long before we find out just who is providing the scripts for Doctor Who in 2010.
