Peter Jackson told Yahoo News that he is still interested in directing Doctor Who.
“I haven’t had to chance because I’ve been so busy on these films. I just have to get invited, and asked, and if we can figure it out, I would love to do a Doctor Who.”
Jackson has been busy directing and promoting Mortal Engines, which hits cinemas December 8. He offered to let the Doctor Who production team use the sets from his film.
“We’ve got a few spare giant moving cities we could throw into the mix.”
“We could offer that up to help the BBC budget!”
Former Doctor Who Showrunner Steven Moffat had previously revealed: “I’ve spoken to [Peter Jackson] 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… I think it will probably happen at some point.”
In an interview with Omelete, executive producer Brian Minchin commented: “Peter Jackson should … come talk to us to direct an episode soon.”
In a hilarious video uploaded to his Facebook profile in 2015, Peter Jackson shared a clip of Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi, appearing in character as the Doctor in Peter Jackon’s kitchen, with a very important letter to deliver.
