Neil Gaiman To Write Doctor Who Episiode

Is it my birthday?


According to CBC News, super-amazing-writer Neil Gaiman has hooked up with the BBC to do something super epic:

 Neil Gaiman has confirmed rumours that he will pen an episode for a forthcoming season of the iconic British series... He revealed that his episode — originally titled "The House of Nothing," but since changed — will air in approximately 14 months.

Mr. Gaiman's upcoming episode won't actually appear until the second season of Matt Smith's stint so don't get too excited yet. The new season of Doctor Who will air on BBC in March, featuring many episodes written by my favorite current Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat, who wrote the 3rd season's episode "Blink."
 
This official 5th season kicks off soon with a great writing staff, and then we see one of the, in my opinion, best comic book writers of all time taking an episode in the 6th season.
 
If you're not excited about this, check your pulse. Who else can barely contain themselves?

I wouldn't mind taking another trip to War World... or the return of the Vanguard. (I swear his name was mentioned in the recent End of Time episode)

It's also good that they have made a lot of new aliens and enemies like the vampires and those lizard things. Van Gogh is also a very good idea.

Oh, I almost forgot about the Ood. They were awesome. In Nevermind the Buzzcocks special for Doctor Who, the Ood singing was so funny.

Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite writers but I have not really watched Doctor Who before I know the concept and that this is a new Doctor but still I don't know how much entertaiment I'd get from this.

@inferiorego: no argument here
 
have you read or watched Neverwhere then? it was a six-episode (30 mins each) tv series he wrote for BBC in the 90's, great stuff, of course I don't know Doctor Who so tuning in for this episode may not even be worth it

 Neil Gaiman just donated another $500,000.00 to Scientology in 2010 through his business partner Mary Gaiman who received a “Gold Humanitarian Award” for contributing to Ideal Org, MN.

Neil Gaiman and Mary Gaiman are business partners in The Blank Corporation and are funneling millions of dollars into Scientology.

The Gaiman family also derive a 6 million dollar income annually from G&G vitamins founded by the now deceased David Gaiman. G&G Vitamins has a monopoly to sell the purification rundown worldwide.
