EW is reporting that Peter Jackson met Stephen Moffat and expressed an interest in directing an episode of Dr. Who. Apparently he's pretty enthusiastic: “They don’t even have to pay me, but I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-colored Daleks. They must have a spare one (hint, hint).”

While I'm sure the BBC would leap at the chance to attach as big a name as Jackson's to their show, I'm not sure if he'd be a good fit for the series. I am pretty sure however, that it won't happen for a while. Jackson still has two more Hobbit films and two more TinTin films to make, so he's probably gonna be quite busy for the foreseeable future.

What do you guys think? Could you see a Jackson-directed Who? Are there any other big name directors you think would be an even better fit?
