Peter Jackson is set to direct and episode of the next series of Doctor Who.

The Lord of the Rings director reportedly said earlier this year that he wouldn't want to be paid for the job but would appreciate taking home a specific prop, "They don't even have to pay me, but I have got me eye on one of those nice new gold coloured Daleks. They must have a spare one."

Speaking at a Q&A event in Edinburgh the show's producer Steven Moffat said, He [ Jackon] is serious about it. We talked at The Hobbit premiere – he just wants a Dalek. So we'll give him a Dalek and he'll direct an episode. I think he'd like us to go to New Zealand."
