If you'd like to see Doctor Who and the TARDIS materialise in New Zealand email executive producers Steven Moffat and Caro Skinner to tell them.

The BBC's Doctor Who website is asking fans to send questions about the show, running at 8.30pm on Thursdays on Prime, to the pair at thedoctor@bbc.co.uk.

Doctor Who star Matt Smith said that he would campaign endlessly to get Peter Jackson to direct an episode of the show in New Zealand.

''I think it would be an absolutely wonderful place to film Doctor Who,'' he told the Times after discussing the show's upcoming 50th anniversary with Moffat over dinner.

''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.''

Smith egged the Times on to approach Jackson, up to his eyes in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, with the idea.

Jackson responded with: '''I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!''

Moffat, who worked with Jackson and Spielberg on the Tintin film, is yet to respond to the idea. If you'd like to join Smith's campaign and help persuade Moffat drop him an email.
