Gaiman back on Doctor Who

The legendary returns to the Who

By Robert T. Trate     November 05, 2012

In a recent interview, at Comic Con in London, Matt Smith spoke about Neil Gaiman returning to Doctor Who. The legendary writer penned “The Doctor’s Wife” (Season 6, episode4) which shed some light on not only the TARDIS, but exactly how the TARDIS felt about the Doctor. Gaimen’s next episode, currently untitled, will be the 13th episode of the current season. 
Here is an excerpt of the interview on 
Collider: “Exactly, I wanted to know when did you first hear Neil Gaiman was writing another one, and what can you tease people about it?
SMITH: Well I heard a long time ago that Neil was coming back to write one.  Again, and I’m not trying to be overly cryptic with you, it’s just that if I say the wrong thing—they’re all writing things down, I get ripped out the back.  But Neil is coming back and I think he’s going to do something brilliantly reinventive, shall we say.
Collider: He did really good episode last time.
SMITH: It was a fantastic episode, yeah.  What Neil does is he comes in with a brilliant initial idea, which only a man of his mind—if you take anything like American Gods, you go how? Where? I can’t kind of correlate it.  He has this wonderful ability to think outside of the box, and fantasy and science fiction, the way he thinks and writes really lends itself to that form, I think”.

 I read about this on Gaiman's site several months ago.  Very much looking forward to the episode.  I'm warming to Matt's take on the character and hope that he continues to get better scripts.  I lost interest for awhile because of the poorly written episodes and the very annoying companions.  It just seemed to be going through the motions.  Gaiman's story was obviously a highlight and one of the best Who stories in this reincarnation of the character.

Abbsolutely loved The Doctors Wife, easily one of the best episodes in the history of Doctor Who.  I look forward to seeing if Mr. Gaiman can top it.
