Neil Gaiman describes writing Doctor Who

Neil Gaiman has spoken to the BBC about the initial thoughts that went through his head when he began writing his Doctor Who episode.

“I don’t know what it’s like to be God – obviously,” he said. “Until that very first moment when you get to sit down and type the words in your script: INTERIOR. TARDIS. Suddenly I got a very good idea of what it must feel like. I went: ‘I’m writing it now this scene in the TARDIS. I’m writing it!’ And that was amazing, it was wonderful.”

As his anticipated story won’t be hitting our screens until Series 6 next year, its details are, naturally, being kept tightly under wraps (he’s seen blocking out its title whilst holding the script on a recent photo taken at its read-through with Steven Moffat!), however he has confirmed that it will be filmed in August.

He finishes the interview by revealing: “It will be on television – and it’s in colour!”

    I already predict Gaiman’s offering will be one of the best modern Who episodes.
