Writer extraordinaire Niel Gaiman has revealed his enthusiasm at the potential of writing an episode of ‘Doctor Who’ for Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor.

During a recent Q&A session with Audrey Niffenegger. Gaiman talked about the potential of another ‘Doctor Who’ story amongst many other topics relating to his rich body of work.

He previously wrote 2011’s ‘The Doctor’s Wife’ and last year’s ‘Nightmare in Silver’.

Gaiman said: “Whenever I’m in the UK, I sneak into meetings with [the production team]. They say, ‘Can you do another one?!’ and I say, ‘Yes! But not yet!'”

He continued: “Now I’m just sort of hoping that I can get one done while Peter Capaldi is still the Doctor, because it would be a very sad thing if I lost my chance to write for a grumpy, Scottish Doctor.”

When asked what he would like to write about in a potential third episode, Gaiman added: “I haven’t done an episode set on Earth yet, and I haven’t created a new monster.”So there are boxes left to tick. And there’s part of me that feels… I haven’t scared anybody yet. I’d love to do something that sends adults behind the sofa too and makes them wee.”

‘Doctor Who’ continues on both BBC1 and BBC America on Saturday with ‘Dark Water’
