‘Doctor Who’ exec still keen to get Peter Jackson directing an ep

Posted Filed under

The makers of Doctor Who haven’t given up their hopes of persuading The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson to film an episode.

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 a new interview with Omelete, executive producer Brian Minchin commented: “Peter Jackson should … come talk to us to direct an episode soon.”
