The Doctor's Wife - what a sexy thing!

Matt Smith Excited by New Neil Gaiman Script

We’ve already learned that major writer Neil Gaiman has contributed his second script to Doctor Who (following Series 6’s The Doctor’s Wife) and as if things weren’t exciting enough, Matt Smith has recently described the episode as a “fan favourite”!

The Doctor's Wife - what a sexy thing!

Speaking to journalists at London’s MCM Expo Comic Con, Matt observed that for all of the popularity of Gaiman’s first episode, it wouldn’t be a retread…

“It’s very different. But again I think it will be a fan’s favourite because, well, without giving anything away, it just will be, because there’s something in it.

“Neil’s brilliant ideas will always add a level to Doctor Who, which will be interesting.”

The popularity of Gaiman’s as-yet-untitled episode isn’t something limited to fandom – The Doctor’s Wife won the 2011 Ray Bradbury Award for ‘Outstanding Dramatic Presentation’ and the 2012 Hugo Award for ‘Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form’.

We’d be surprised if Neil Gaiman’s second Doctor Who episode isn’t at least nominated for either of these categories…
