VIDEO: Peter Jackson's Hint He Will Direct Doctor Who

Doctor Who Christmas

Published at 6:02am 1st December 2015.

Is the director of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings about to join Doctor Who?

Peter Jackson has uploaded a video, showing Peter Capaldi delivering him a contract to sign.

There have been rumours swirling for years that the award winning director might be up for directing an episode.

He is a self-confessed fan of the sci-fi show, but with a schedule packed with shooting the Hobbit trilogy it did not seem possible.

Until now.

In the tongue in cheek video Jackson's daughter is checking emails while her dad polishes his Oscars.

She receives one from Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat - moments before the Doctor himself turns up.

"I'm the Doctor," Capaldi tells them.

"Who?" asks Jackson.

"Correct" he replies.

Teasingly, the papers are not signed at the end of the video - but it does seem to be the biggest hint yet the collaboration is going to happen.

Take a look at the full video below...
