Neil Gaiman interview DOCTOR WHO at WonderCon slice

Before this weekend’s Doctor Who panel at WonderCon, I got to speak with Neil Gaiman.  The reason Gaiman was on the press line is that he wrote next season’s fourth episode called “The Doctor’s Wife.”  While I didn’t ask him for any specifics about the story, he did talk about how he got involved in writing the episode, what he wanted to have happen, and he said his favorite line.  In addition, Gaiman talked about how much he tweaked the script and we ended the interview talking about his future directing plans.  Hit the jump to watch:
