    Ha, that got you looking...

    They could offset the cost of flying everyone out here by hiring locals to wear their ordinary clothes. No need for an alien costume department here!

    I'm not sure Peter Jackson is capable of filming something only 40 minutes long.

    Might be good if it's a sequel to Bad Taste. Have the Doctor team up with the Astro Investigation and Defence Service.

    The episode would be 42 minutes long.

    The extended edition would be 506 minutes long.

    The part of "The TARDIS" will be played by Andy Serkis in an elaborate box-suit.

    He's a director I've a huge fondness for, to go from gory/sci-fi horror/comedy films to a beutiful period portrayal of matricide to Hollywood fantasy blockbusters is a hell of a journey.

    Just a shame he's increasingly fallen into the trap all great directors seem to, of losing the power of editing and forgeting the importance of pacing. Still this would be fab, but at the moment it's just pure wish fulfilment.

    Starring Karl Urban as The Master.

    At this rate, Series 8 will only consist of a single episode...

    Wasn't there another well known director they turned down that wanted to do it? Probably because they were too expensive.

    If it ever happens, I hope the Peter Jackson we get is the one who directed Bad Taste, not the one who directed The Lord of the Rings (although I like both of them, and I love the one who directed Forgotten Silver)

    I dunno, do we want a guy who takes 7 years (or however long it was) to make one episode? :lol:

    The Peter Jackson who made Heavenly Creatures for me please. As an added bonus Jackson might bring the Winslet notion back into play...

    Jackson will get the script. Film more than is needed.

    Decide later to split it into three episodes and release them three seasons apart.

    And make 3 billion dollars somehow.

    Since every other film of his is already taken: Please the Peter Jackson who filmed The Frighteners for me.
