Matt Smith, the 11th actor to play the time traveler in the hit BBC series, told the Waikato Times today he would start a campaign to film an episode in New Zealand with Sir Peter Jackson directing.
”I think it would be an absolutely wonderful place to film Doctor Who,” Smith, on the phone from the UK to promote the latest series of the show, said.
”I’m told it’s glorious. I’m told it’s quite similar to England.
”Let’s get Peter Jackson to direct one and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there,” Smith said.
”There’s clearly a great film industry out there. It’s something I would be very interested in it’s just whether we can persuade the producers to fly us all over.”
The idea is not as far fetched as Sir Peter Jackson says he’d be keen to help out:
”I’m a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt’s fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I’ll be there!”
