At least not any time soon anyway.
While it is well documented that the Middle-Earth mastermind is an avid fan of the show and would jump at the chance to direct an episode of the show, Deadline have commented that it’s unlikely to happen in the foreseeable future.
The director is completely engrossed in the second and third installments of The Hobbit trilogy, and he will not be emerging from Middle Earth for the better part of two years.
But don’t let that dampen our collective spirits; remember that this is the director who has said that he would direct an episode in return for a Dalek. He may be a little preoccupied at the minute, but that wont always be the case and as we know, Doctor Who fans are nothing if not patient.
And let’s not forget that this is by no means a quiet time for the show with a 50th anniversary special, a Christmas special, a new Doctor and a new series next year to look forward to – its not like we are going to be short of things to enjoy while Peter Jackson finishes up with his dwarves and dragons trilogy.
So what do you think: is Peter Jackson worth waiting for or do you think its all just so much hype? Comment below and let us hear what you have to say on the subject.
