After years of fans calling out for it, this year will seen the Doctor finally make a turn as a woman in the long-running British sci-fi TV series, Doctor Who. On the heels of Peter Capaldi’s time as the Time Lord, there certainly seems to be a bit of a renewed enthusiasm for the show to come (seriously, the energy at Comic-Con for this show was electric), but there is one writer who’s been itching to come back to the series for some time: Neil Gaiman.
Gaiman is no stranger to the franchise, and in addition to writing a couple episodes of the show, he also wrote the book Nothing O’Clock. His enthusiasm for the show has never been a huge secret, and as he revealed to Digital Spy, he very much wants to come back:
“If you examine my DNA and you go in deep enough, with a good enough microscope, you’re gonna see a TARDIS, with a little light blinking on the top! So the idea of writing for Jodie, or for her successor, whoever she / he / they happen to be, is… yeah, it’s Doctor Who! You can’t say no.”
But does the man actually have time in his busy schedule to make this happen any time soon? He was unable to work something with show runner Steven Moffat, and these days he’s running the TV adaptation of his novel Good Omens, so he hands his hands pretty full.
Here’s hoping that Whittaker will have at least a few seasons in her so that Gaiman could make it happen.
