Peter Jackson Teases That He'll Direct a DOCTOR WHO Episode

A few months ago Matt Smith expressed his desire for director Peter Jackson to direct an episode of Doctor Who. When Jackson was asked if he would be interested in directing an episode he said,

I’m a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt’s fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I’ll be there!

Jackson recently attended a screening of the 2012 Doctor Who Christmas Special, "The Snowmen." While there he was asked by the London Evening Standard if he would be collaborating with Doctor Who's Steven Moffat, to which he replied with a grin, 

Well, you never know, we may well do.

This is more of a tease than confirmation. But it would be so awesome if Jackson did end up directing an episode of Doctor Who! I have no doubt it would be awesome! I'd love it if he went back to his horror movie roots with the series if he did. 

Jackson worked with Moffat on The Adventures of Tintin, and I imagine they'll work together on the sequel as well. Hopefully somewhere in between they will do a Doctor Who episode!
