Peter Jackson wants to direct 'Doctor Who': 'Pay me with a Dalek'

Peter Jackson Peter Jackson wants to direct an episode of Doctor Who. He revealed his desire to direct an episode back in the autumn of 2012 and is also a huge fan of Matt smith. 

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jackson disclosed that he met with Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat about overseeing a future instalment of the series.

"They don't even have to pay me," Jackson joked, adding: "I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-coloured Daleks. They must have a spare one!"

Doctor Who producer Moffat remained coy on if Jackson could actually be paid with a Dalek, but did stress that he is open to working with the Oscar-winning director.

"We're theoretically on board for anything… provided we've got a great story," Moffat teased.
 Jackson has spoken openly about his life-long love of Doctor Who throughout his career, and even cast former Doctor Sylvester McCoy as Radagast the Brown in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
