Joss Whedon has said he’d love to write an episode of Doctor Who… but the title character must be a woman.
Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con’s Nerd HQ, the Avengers director was asked if he’d consider writing for the BBC series.
“Check back with me when the Doctor is a she…” he said, “…or Idris Elba!“
The Buffy creator said it would be “very daunting” to “following in the footsteps of Moffat and the guys”.
“I’d have to do a lot of research – like, what, watch 40 years of television? I mean, I’ve seen some of it, but let’s get real,” he added.
Doctor Who will return to BBC One in December for a Christmas special, with a full series to follow in 2017.
