Neil Gaiman wrote a Doctor Who, who knew?

One of my favourite episodes from the current series of Dr Who – the Doctor’s wife – was written by one of my favourite writers – the incalculable, inestimable Neil Gaiman. It’s really interesting to read his Q&A on it and get some insight into his collaborative creative process with Steven Moffat (spoilers therein).

To which Steven replied,

Love the tattoo and the arm and the recycled monsters – but we can we make the Corsair sound less like the man the Doctor modeled himself on? Answers too many question that should be left alone. He’s the Doctor, he does what he does for reasons too vast and terrible to relate.

Which when put like that was absolutely unarguable-with.

Fantastic stuff. Trailer here, for people that missed the episode:
