Simon Nye on Amy’s Choice

Doctor Who - Amy's Choice starring Matt SmithSpeaking to the Coventry Telegraph, Amy’s Choice writer Simon Nye reveals little about the episode – but does give a bit of background into how he coped with having the Doctor Who universe at his fingertips.

Nye has been repeatedly downplaying the episode, and is openly nervous. However trailers have been encouraging, and there is every chance that Amy’s Choice could either be one of the most popular episodes this series – just as there is a good chance it might be a Love & Monsters style audience splitter (see more on this in our preview.)

Best known for creating bawdy comedy Men Behaving Badly in the 1990s, Nye is however adept at writing different types of show – he’s also contributed to My Family and Other Animals and brought Reggie Perrin up to date. So would he be interested in doing another episode if asked?

I don’t know. It’s quite arduous. It’s quite odd to have the whole universe at your fingertips while you’re writing. I do pride myself in being able to cope with different genres, and I did enjoy doing it. I think this series has gone really well, and I just hope my episode fits well within it.

Amy’s Choice airs on BBC One and BBC HD this evening at 6.25pm.
