Is J.K. Rowling Writing a Doctor Who Story?

So, the BBC announced that a series of Doctor Who short stories will be published monthly to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series. Each of the 11 tales will be written by a well known children’s author and focus on a specific regeneration of the Doctor.

That having been said, what children’s author do you think would be on the top of this list? If you said “J.K. Rowling”, you’re not alone. In addition to Rowling, Hypable has put together a list of plausible candidates including Anthony Horowitz, Philip Pullman, Alan Garner, Geraldine McCaughrean, Michelle Paver, Susan Price, and Kate Thompson.

We won’t know for sure until the end of the year, but the first author will be revealed on the 7th of January followed by the first story on the 23rd. A promotional video featuring each author will be released monthly starting on January 11th. When all is said and done, a paperback of the series will be released in November.

So, assuming J.K. Rowling is on the list, which Doctor do you think would suit her story the best?
