Peter Jackson May Direct A ‘Doctor Who’ Episode
Sir Peter Jackson is adding more fuel to the fire that he will take on an episode of the long-running BBC show Doctor Who.
Sir Peter Jackson To Direct ‘Doctor Who’ Episode?
Jackson, who is notably known for directing The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbie trilogies, posted a new video to his Facebook page which included current Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi in the video looking for a director for an upcoming episode. Fans of the longtime series have been yearning for a collaboration between Jackson and the series since 11th doctor Matt Smith stated in a 2012 interview that he would love to have the director direct an episode.
Steven Moffat told UK’s Metro magazine that he was keen on having Jackson come aboard for an episode. “He’s a genuine big old Doctor Who fan,” Moffat said of Jackson. “He’s mentioned it, and then we email him and he doesn’t reply.”
The video belows shows the toungue-in-cheek approach where Capaldi is in dire search for a new director and happens to stumble into Jackson’s house.
