peter-jackson-doctor-who-dalekPeter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) has said that discussions of him helming an episode of Doctor Who are “actually kind of serious”.

Jackson’s love of Doctor Who isn’t exactly a secret and this project has been mooted for a while now. The director even made a cameo appearance in The Five(ish) Doctors last month.

Jackson said: “I would be very happy to [direct an episode]. I’d love to try my hand at television, because I’ve never had the discipline of having to shoot for those impossibly tiny schedules. I think I could do it okay now.”

He jested: “I did suggest that they did a New Zealand story – something to do with the [rugby union] All Blacks versus the Daleks. There’s a good story in there, although obviously the All Blacks would have to win!”
