Moffat: Peter Jackson Episode Will Probably Happen
Steven Moffat has said that Peter Jackson’s (Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit) long-mooted Doctor Who episode will probably happen “at some point”.
Speaking in the latest issue of SFX, Moffat said: “He’s still incredibly busy on The Hobbit. I’ve spoken to him face to face, and he would like to do one. He accepts that there’s no money and that there’s no time, and it would have to be when he’s available – and I don’t think he’s even been available enough to answer our emails of late!
“I think it will probably happen at some point. I mean, he can do what the hell he likes – he owns New Zealand! I think he’s sincere in his Doctor Who fandom, to say the least. He’s a nice guy, he quite often drops me a line after a show goes out. He’s into it – it’s just “Can you make it work?”
“I think he would also like us to go and make it in New Zealand! And I’m like “Okaaay… I’d rather we just flew you to Cardiff!””
