Everyone wants Peter Jackson to direct an episode of Doctor Who, including the man himself, but it’s been a topic of conversation for so long without anything happening that it seems doubtful. Leave it to Peter Jackson to renew all our hopes in a recent interview saying:
“I would be very happy to. I’d love to try my hand at television, because I’ve never had the discipline of having to shoot for those impossibly tiny schedules. I think I could do it okay now.”
The good news is that Jackson explained that there have been discussions about his directing a Doctor Who episode, and “they are actually kind of serious.” He went on to joke about the storyline he proposed shooting:
“I did suggest that they did a New Zealand story – something to do with the [rugby union] All Blacks versus the Daleks. There’s a good story in there, although obviously the All Blacks would have to win!”
I think it’s safe to say that we’d all like to see any story Jackson would be willing to shoot in the world of Doctor Who. Let whoever you want win and we’ll all be along for the ride.
