Well, it may be good for him to have to craft a story that has to be 44 minutes long. Gods knows he has forgotten about pace and craft in association with the films he is making. So overblown and indulgent and unfocused.
Peter Jackson has exclusively confirmed that he is still interested in directing an episode of Doctor Who. The Lord of the Rings filmmaker has also named his fee: a Dalek. The offer came in the course of Jackson’s appreciation of the British science fiction show that appears in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.
Jackson is a diehard Who fan who has been watching the 50-year-old series almost since it began broadcasting and who first expressed his willingness to direct an episode last year. In the EW article, he reveals that he met current Who executive producer Steven Moffat over Christmas and assured him he wasn’t joking. “They don’t even have to pay me,” Jackson writes. “But I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-colored Daleks. They must have a spare one (hint, hint).”
Love Charlie. Loving ‘Wipe’. Love that ‘Black Mirror’ is back on Tuesday. He makes the best TV.
