Pray for Gaiman

Fantasy writer and contributor to Doctor Who’s 2011 series 6 (season 32) Neil Gaiman reports on Twitter that he has submitted yet another draft of his headlining script writing turn on the show.

Doctor Who scriptwriter Neil GaimanWriting on Twitter, Gaiman remarked:

Sent 7th draft of Dr Who ep off to BBC. It’s 2:30am. I hope they like it. Pray for me. Or sacrifice to strange gods. Or just hope.

Gaiman is one of several big name writers to have contributed to Steven Moffat’s era of Doctor Who. The 2010 series saw Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually, Blackadder, The Vicar of Dibley and of course Vincent and the Doctor) and Simon Nye (Men Behaving Badly and Amy’s Choice) trying their hand for the first time at the science fantasy realm of the Doctor – to pretty impressive results.

Neil Gaiman (whose successful works include Stardust, Neverwhere, Sandman and of course popular children’s title The Graveyard Book) should have no problem thrilling viewers. But just in case, let’s say a prayer.
