Neil Gaiman writing another episode of Doctor Who

The start of a new series wasn’t the only reason for Whovians to celebrate. Doctor Who won a Hugo Award in the category of “Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form)”.

The winning episode “The Doctor’s Wife” beat off Community and, erm, more Doctor Who, “The Girl Who Waited” and “A Good Man Goes to War” to be precise.

Neil Gaiman, writer for the winning episode, was there to pick up the award and in his acceptance speech said “…only a fool or a mad man would try to do it again… so I’m on the third draft.

There is no word yet as to when the episode will go in to production or be released. In fact it’s very possible that it may not even make it in to this series. After all “The Doctor’s Wife” was originally written for season five and ended up being pushed to six for budgetary reasons.

Steven Moffat has said nothing on the subject but was at least kind enough to offer these words on Twitter:

“Huge congratulations to @neilhimself and @rclarkie (Richard Clark, Director) as The Doctor’s Wife bags Doctor Who’s SIXTH Hugo. Not boasting or nuffing. But SIXTH!”
