Peter Jackson Found the Geekiest Way Possible to Announce That He’ll Be …

1 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Do these spoiler pictures prove Clara Oswald is ALIVE in Doctor Who?.

Hobbit director Peter Jackson has expertly trolled Doctor Who fans everywhere with a cheeky video hinting he might direct an episode of the show, while at the same time taking a crack at the quality of the scripts. “He’s always emailing me,” says the Kiwi filmmaker casually. “I reply to the ones I can understand but some are a bit incoherent – you know, like his scripts. I mean, there are great ones and there’s ones that are … not great.” Jackson also sends Lord of the Rings fans into meltdown by mischievously placing a copy of Tolkien’s The Silmarillion in the foreground, complete with Post-It notes marking four spots. Eagle-eyed fans have flooded social media with filming pictures from August showing actress Jenna filming a scene as a waitress in what could be an American diner. Devotees of the movies have long fantasised about Jackson directing a film version of the book, but it has always seemed highly unlikely due to complicated rights issues involving Tolkien’s estate. So far Jenna’s character Clara has not been seen in the BBC sci-fi series wearing the outfit, leading to many to suspect that her character will have found a way to cheat death.

Clara met her end in the episode titled Face the Raven where she marked herself with death to save her friend Rigsy, thinking the Doctor would be able to fix it and save her. The English songstress expressed her desire to work with Drake earlier this month, revealing she is a big fan of the Toronto rapper, and now it appears the feelings are mutual. The comments come after Adele revealed she got drunk with her friends to celebrate the success of Hello and ended up dancing on a table to Drake’s Hotline Bling. Just name a time and place, and I’ll be there!” We know Jackson isn’t one to rush, so three years feels practically brisk when it comes to the turnaround on this project.

After hearing the comments, Drake shared an illustration of himself and Adele in their respective video clips which coincidentally centre around phone calls. After nearly four years out of the spotlight, Adele’s comeback has taken the pop world by storm, with her third album 25 becoming the fastest-selling record in history. He accepts that there’s no money and that there’s no time, and it would have to be when he’s available… I think it will probably happen at some point.” Jackson isn’t the first famously creative Who fan to get involved in the show.

Jenna, who will play a young Queen Victoria in an ITV drama, first quit Doctor Who last year but she had a change of heart and decided to stay for a final series. Now imagine the possibility of Gaiman writing that episode. (In 2014, the author said, “I’m just sort of hoping that I can get one done while Peter Capaldi is still the Doctor, because it would be a very sad thing if I lost my chance to write for a grumpy, Scottish Doctor.”) Now feel free to freak out. I’d planned all these things I wanted to say but only got two words out. “I’m emotional but I don’t usually like to cry in front of other people.
