It's looking very likely that Peter Jackson will direct an episode of Doctor Who.

That's after the Oscar winning director posted this video on his Facebook page of him and his daughter discussing an email from Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat. The email in question is part of a negotiation about Jackson possibly directing an episode of the hit BBC series. Then the Time Lord himself, Peter Capaldi enters (in character) to deliver a contract to the New Zealander. 

There had been rumours in the past the Jackson might be interested in directing an episode of Doctor Who but since he's been tied up in Middle Earth for the past five years it never really looked like coming to fruition before today.

The video is a bit of a hoot and well worth a watch. 

We'll be hoping to get an official announcement some time soon.
