Would Joss Whedon write for Doctor Who? His comments made at the weekend have picked up a fair bit of media attention. Second only to what he said about the Black Widow movie.

The first person I've found who wouldn't think my plan to watch Who continuously from episode one is insane.

I am on episode 44 and have been for five years now.
He could still write an episode starring the Tardis.
Yes, please, to both.
sumogrip are you familiar with Adventures with the Wife in Space? A Doctor Who fanatic watching every single (available) episode of Classic Who with his wife. It's a lot of fun if you haven't encountered it yet. Should pop up readily on google.
Thanks for the rec! I hadn't heard of this before, but just poking around, it looks like a fantastic companion to the series!
The question is, has anyone asked Joss?
Yes, during the NerdHQ panel. That's what the news article is about. :)
technovamp, I believe Neil Gaiman already did that one. It was called "The Doctor's Wife".
For some reason this idea doesn't exactly thrill me. I didn't like Gaiman's episodes that much, either. Especially "The Doctor's Wife".

Apart from that, I would really like to see Whedon write more stories for male characters. So maybe somebody should call Stringer once Capaldi decides to step down.
Aw, I loved the Gaiman episode, even though I had joked about their being an episode where the TARDIS was made corporeal and that it'd be too fan fiction-y for me. But he pulled it off, I thought. Having said that, if Joss were to write an episode, I bet he'd do better if he focused on the companion, who is usually the character that knows the least. That way he and the character would be on equal footing. Or he could do something like Blink, which hardly had the Doctor and Martha in it at all, but was brilliant.
