J.K. Rowling for Doctor Who Short Story Project

As part of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary the BBC have announced a set of short stories. There will be a short story for each incarnation of The Doctor starting with number 1 (William Hartnell) and ending with 11 (Matt Smith).

All of the stories are to be written by some of the best names in children’s literature. And as if that wasn’t exciting enough blastr.com has heard rumours that one of those could be J.K. Rowling.

The publisher Juliet Matthews said:

We are delighted to have 11 sensational children’s authors involved in the series, all bringing an individual style, imagination and interpretation to their eshort tribute to The Doctor… This is a who’s who of children’s fiction coming together to celebrate the much-loved Doctor Who.”

Even if the rumour about J.K. Rowling turns out not to be true, the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is still something to be very excited about. Steven Moffat has promised “tremendous surprises” and has said, “I promise you, we’re going to take over television.”

The Doctor Who stories will be published monthly and a paperback of the collection will be released in November by Puffin.

If J.K. Rowling is in fact writing for the project, which Doctor would you like to see her write for? Comments below.
