Peter Jackson eyes Doctor Who directing role
Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson is keen to direct an episode of long-running sci-fi TV series Doctor Who.
The show's current Time Lord, Matt Smith, recently revealed he would love to shoot upcoming installments in New Zealand, where Jackson has been working on Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit.
He said, "I think it would be an absolutely wonderful place to film Doctor Who. I'm told it's glorious. I'm told it's quite similar to England.
"Let's get Peter Jackson to direct (an episode) and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there."
The acclaimed director has now responded to the call, insisting he would love to take charge of an episode of the cult favourite.
He tells New Zealand's Waikato Times, "I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!''
what do you think?
well as much as a fan as I am, something needs to be done. So far this current series is lacklustre and pretty boring. The stories are predicable and trite. The cast feel as if they're just going through the motions. I'd rather it finished with people loving it rather than have it wind down in the current manner.....
