A “Doctor Who” wish list…

Over at the Tor Books blog, there’s a fantastic post pitching five writers who should write for “Doctor Who”.  As for the suggestion that “30 Rock” creator and awesome nerd genius Tina Fey should take a crack at an episode – yes, yes, YES!

This. NEEDS. To. Happen.

My own, humble suggestions for hypothetical “Doctor Who” episode writers?

1) Dan Abnett.  He’s written “Torchwood” and “Doctor Who”  novels, surely this is just a matter of time.

Novelist, 40K mainstay, comics creator and bloke who should write "Who"

2) Jasper Fforde.  As we’ll never see a “Thursday Next” film, wouldn’t it be interesting to see what he could do working in this universe, and utilising his love of literature in the service of the Doctor’s adventures.

Creator of "Thursday Next" and fantastically imaginative heir to Douglas Adams' tradition of witty, absurd SF fantasy

3) Audrey Niffenegger.  Author of “The Time Traveller’s Wife”, “Her Fearful Symmetry” and compadre of Neil Gaiman.  I’m just saying…

Unashamed Sci-Fi author, visual artist and ace Q & A-ist...

Your list, perhaps?
