The Next Historical Celebrity Mark Gatiss Wants on DOCTOR WHO

After DOCTOR WHO has faced the likes of Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie, Winston Churchill, and William Shakespeare on his adventures, writer Mark Gatiss talked about the possibility of adding a classic, much-loved writer into the mix via two new episodes he is writing: Jane Austen!

“One of the things which new Doctor Who sort of invented was the idea of a celebrity historical – Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie, Winston Churchill, Shakespeare,” he said. ”There’s three writers there so I think Jane Austen stands quite a quite a good chance actually… I’m not quite sure what the adventure would be. Maybe an alien posing as Mr Darcy.”

This is NOT confirmed as a future episode, nor has it be confirmed that Gatiss’ episodes will be included in this upcoming season. Still, we can hope!
