Neil Gaiman won a Hugo award on Sunday for his amazing episode of Doctor Who, “The Doctor’s Wife.” During his acceptance speech for that award, he revealed an exciting bit of news: he’s writing another episode about the madman with a box. His first attempt was so perfect that I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. I have absolutely no reservations that he won’t be able to top the story of Idris.
io9 was able to speak with Gaiman at the Hugo afterparty and gleaned these details:
Apparently the new episode is slated for the second half of season seven, which means that it could air as soon as spring 2013. But Gaiman pointed out that “The Doctor’s Wife,” his Hugo-winning episode, was originally slated for season five and got bumped to season six for budgetary reasons. The same thing could easily happen to his new episode, he said — and it sounds like this is another super-expensive story to make.
Even if it does get pushed back, I’m sure that it will be worth the wait.
