Whenever a certain segment of illiterate people hear that Grant Morrison is going to write something, they get excited. I say these people are illiterate, as no one who can actually read words written down on paper and understand them could possibly think he can come up with any idea that isn’t monumentally stupid. His run on New X-Men, and its ending, is possibly the dumbest thing to happen in an issue of X-Men since Wolverine was retconned to have bone claws. Thankfully, the whole Magneto bullshit was retconned out of continuity!
Now Morrison wants to bring his stupidity to Doctor Who. Speaking at MorrisonCon, he said he’s tried to get in contact with Moffat, but hasn’t thankfully hasn’t had a response yet:
“[Steven] Moffat had been getting a lot of tweets from people who were saying, ‘You should have Grant write “Doctor Who,”‘ and I’d really love to write ‘Doctor Who,’” Grant said, adding that a friend of his who had worked with writer Mark Gatiss and Moffat pitched the idea to them and reported they wanted to hear from Morrison.
“We tried it four or five times, and he never wrote back,” Morrison said, adding that he had heard from those working on the related animated show that they were given Morrison’s ’80s “Doctor Who” comics for reference.
Hopefully Moffat values the quality of Who enough to not let Morrison anywhere near it.
