Gaiman Script Update

Fantasy creator legend Neil Gaiman has revealed to Twitter followers that he has completed a draft version of his Doctor Who script, expected to be produced as part of Season 32/Series 6.

Neil Gaiman talks Doctor Who scriptWith Matt Smith expected to remain as the star of the show for at least another year, we can at the very least expect the Eleventh Doctor to play a part in what is going to be a highly anticipated TV event; hell, we’re anticipating it now, and we’re not even halfway through the preceding season!

“Doctor Who episode next season draft done and in. Now I work on Anansi Boys script and then try and get to see fiancee on her birthday.”

Originally called ‘The House of Nothing’, the script has apparently since been retitled…

We should point out though that Doctor Who scripts do have a habit of not being made – comedian, actor and writer Stephen Fry has had a script floating around for some time, while Mark Gatiss revealed in Doctor Who Magazine that Victory of the Daleks is quite different from the original Daleks and World War 1 script that was initially submitted for the 2008 series.

    Lucky enough to chat to Neil about his script recently when he was attending one of Amanda Palmer’s (his fiancee) gigs in London. Looks like it was originally intended to be episode 11 in 2010 but had to be put back to the early part of the 2011 series because of budget (i.e. there not being enough in the pot to do it justice) so that means the Grand Moff wants to do it proper justice.

    After the late lamented Douglas Adams (who only hit the big time post-Doctor Who) Neil is the biggest name to have ever written for the series and I’m so looking forward to his combining with the best Doctor in years.
