Is it just me, or does Neil Gaiman look like he’d make a pretty good Doctor himself? (Writer Pictures via AP Images)

Oh here we GO!

Neil Gaiman is a fine, fine writer. He’s been responsible for many fine, fine things in the general area of fantasy and science fiction and fiction generally. He’s also a huge Doctor Who fan and wrote the award-winning story The Doctor’s Wife, in which the TARDIS was taken out of the TARDIS and placed inside a human, called Idris.

You remember, it went like this:

Well now, according to Doctor Who Magazine, he has a new Who story to tell, and it’s going to appear in the second half of Season 7.

The existence of a second Gaiman script has been the subject of feverish internet conjecture for weeks, since Neil himself (who tweets under the name @neilhimself) mentioned that he was writing something Whoish back in September. And now it’s confirmed.

Other writers for the last eight stories of Season 7 include Neil Cross (the creator of Luther), Mark Gatiss (Steven Moffat’s Sherlock co-creator), Stephen Thompson (another Sherlocker, who also wrote The Curse of the Black Spot), and of course Steven Moffat.

So, basically…YES. YES TO EVERYTHING. And we’ll let you know about transmission dates.
