Every few weeks for the last year, rumors have gone up that Neil Gaiman will be writing an episode of “Doctor Who,” and just as quickly Gaiman has shot down the rumors on his blog (which is an excellent read in and of itself). Well, the rumor has sprung up again with the resiliency of a Duggar dick near a fertile female, and this time, the news actually has been confirmed with Gaiman in an interview with SFX Magazine.
That much British awesome in one room is enough to get William Wallace to rock out a Union Jack tube top.
A life long “Doctor Who” fan himself, Gaiman has recounted watching the show from behind the couch since he was only three, which is actually four in American years. Rumor (oh that snide bitch) has it that the episode was supposed to be in the upcoming season but instead was pushed into the next season for budgetary reasons. That means that it will air sometime in 2012, though hopefully before the Mayans return to kill us with cheesy CGI.
Gaiman himself says that the script is done and that the original title of the episode was “The House of Nothing” though “it definitely isn’t called that any more.”
