The fantastic author Neil Gaiman, who penned last season's beloved Doctor Who episode "The Doctor's Wife," had so much fun he's coming back. Who fans, rejoice—Gaiman is hard at work on his return trip to the TARDIS.

Gaiman revealed the good news during his recent Hugo Award acceptance speech, where he not surprisingly won the Best Dramatic Presentation Short Form award for "The Doctor's Wife."

The Stardust author set fanboys' heart aflutter with this:

"Only a fool or a mad man would try to do it again ... so I'm on the third draft."
Gaiman revealed a few more details to io9, and said his new episode is currently slated for the second half of season seven in spring 2013—but it could be bumped, depending on budgetary issues ("The Doctor's Wife" was similarly delayed, to free up the cash needed to do it justice).

Hmm, so if the episode could be delayed for budget issues, it's probably safe to assume that Gaiman is conjuring up another VFX extravaganza. Fingers crossed that this one happens sooner, rather than later.

DId you enjoy "The Doctor's Wife"? Are you glad to hear Gaiman will be back for more Who?
