Joss Whedon wants to write for Doctor Who but…..

July 29th, 2016 by bash Comments


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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
