Neil Gaiman loves Doctor Who, and it appears that Doctor Who, or at least Whovians, seem rather fond of the British fantasy author as well. A lifelong devotee of the venerable sci-fi adventure, Gaiman has already penned a pair of episodes—“The Doctor’s Wife” and “Nightmare in Silver”—both of which people seem to enjoy. As we build up towards the 50th anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor,” Gaiman is set to release a new Doctor Who short story, and the Guardian just released a sneak peek in the form of the first two pages.
The story, called “Nothing O’Clock,” stars Matt Smith’s soon-to-be-gone 11th Doctor, as well as his recently departed travelling companion Amy Pond, played on the show by Karen Gillan. This is the 11th in a series of 11 short stories Doctor Who short stories, each by a different writer, and will be available for download on November 21.
