Mark Gatiss reveals his dream ‘Doctor Who’ story

Posted Filed under

Gatiss told Blogtor Who: “The Doctor Who story I’ve always wanted to do is about Laika the dog, the Russian dog they put in space. I think I had a dream about it once where there was just him in his capsule – what a lonely thing!”

The Sherlock co-creator added: “I thought, wouldn’t it be fascinating if something else got in, like The Quatermass Experiment? And Laika came back to Earth, still alive, but not aloneā€¦”

Gatiss recently stated that a Doctor Who spin-off featuring Commander Strax, Madame Vastra and Jenny is unlikely due to time constraints: “A lot of people would like to see it – but I’m not sure if anyone has the time to do it.”
