BBC announced yesterday that there would be 11 e-short stories to supplement this year's 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Each story is going to feature a different adventure with a different doctor and penned by a select list of popular children's authors. No authors have been announced as of yet, but i09 makes the guess that author J.K. Rowling will be among those selected to pen a story. If she were to be writing a tale it would only make sense she tackle David Tennant given his huge fandom of the Harry Potter series and appearance in the movies as Barty Crouch Jr.
The official list will start rolling out on BBC's Dr. Who Facebook page this Monday. Will she make the cut? Would you care to see Rowling take on The Doctor?
