Dr Who producer interested in NZ film shoot Can't Post

This story continues to grow, with the people behind Dr Who now also making positive noises about Peter Jackson directing an episode or two in NZ.

Sure it still sounds like a lot of back-slapping rather than an actual plan to do it, but the willingness is a good place to start!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Do we find happiness so often that we should turn it off the box when it happens to sit there?

Waikato Times article....... [In reply to] Can't Post

is here
But there is no explanation of why the (telephone?) interview happened.
I was puzzled by the reference in the OPs article to the Times. Silly me initially thought it must be theTimes(UK).

I really hope it happens [In reply to] Can't Post

But as the article says, it's going to be years away yet. I doubt PJ could spare anytime to write/direct an episode at the moment, and they've already filmed the majority of next years series. You then have the 50th Anniversary, and then the next series. I hope Matt Smith is still around then to appear in a PJ episode!

A Doctor Who film with Tolkien being the companion? [In reply to] Can't Post

That would be great ... I can hear the screams of anger though at the suggestion ...

You could have the doctor turn up in Oxford... [In reply to] Can't Post

...and meet the Inklings at some early point, and in his dialog he'd casually mention things that we fans would recognize as appearing in the story. Second breakfast, or ringwraiths, or brooches in the shape of leaves. That's the way writers' brains work---hear it or see it and years later it will pop back out in a new and wonderful form. Wink
