Peter Jackson wants to direct an episode of Doctor Who

Peter JacksonAfter participating in Sylvester McCoy’s The Five(ish) Doctors, Peter Jackson may want to try directing an episode of Doctor Who.

He recently spoke to Digital Spy during The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug promotion tour about his attempt at TV, “I would be very happy to. 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.”

Although he would be interested in directing an episode, would he be willing to leave New Zealand to direct in Cardiff (the Doctor Who headquarters)? Jackson commented, “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!”

I’m all for a Peter Jackson-directed episode! Imagine him directing Peter Capaldi! I really hope this goes through!

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug comes out this Friday, December 13, 2013.
