Jackson to direct Doctor Who
The New Director Who

Doctor Who will return on September 1st in the US, UK, and Canada
This headline may be a tad misleading. The case being, that Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) is already directing Doctor Who. The seventh Doctor to be precise, Sylvester McCoy (he’ll portray Radagast the Brown). However, it is not completely misleading as Stuff’s Chris Gardner is reporting.
In a recent interview, the eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith told the Waikato Times that he would start a campaign to film an episode in New Zealand and have Peter Jackson direct it.
Smith said: “Let's get Peter Jackson to direct one and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there.”
The story doesn’t end there. Peter Jackson has already caught wind of this idea and replied to Smith.
Jackson stated: “'I'm a huge Dr Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!''
Now all we have to do is wait for some scheduling to clear up, some Hobbit movies to get finished, and hope Smith doesn’t regenerate into a different Doctor.
