Neil Gaiman has written a 'Doctor Who' episode

Doctor WhoAs the title says, the Goth Geek God himself, Neil Gaiman, has penned an episode of the British iconic program 'Doctor Who'. Gaiman has already written for television (including an episode of 'Babylon 5' and his British TV series 'Neverwhere') but this represents the first time he has written for a program that he actually watched as a child. If you listen carefully, you can hear all the nerd brains around the world exploding.

Gaiman himself announced this at a British sci-fi convention this past weekend and shocked everyone with this bombshell during an award acceptance speech. However, the folks behind our favorite Time Lord would not confirm Gaiman's statement. Hopefully he didn't jump the gun with this announcement. It would be a shame if he had to renege on it later.

The episode might be called 'The House of Nothing' (the announcement is nothing if not vague) and supposedly will air sometime in 2011, during the next season. Neil Gaiman, meet Matt Smith.

Looking at the episodes for series five, the authors names appear on all the episodes, and Gaiman's name doesn't appear on any of them. -He may have written a story for them, but they may not be using it... Yet.

Here's hoping Matt Smith won't ruin the show for us.

Steven Moffat + Neil Gaiman, what an awesome combo for Doctor Who perfection.
