Manic Street PreachersNicky Wire has revealed he is writing a script for Dr Who.

The bassist, writing on his blog at the band’s website,, explained that he had set himself the task of writing an episode named ‘Do Not Go Gently’ for fun.

“The idea is centred around Dylan Thomas‘ last days in New York,” he wrote. “Of course, it’s going to have a massive fucking monster in it too.”

The BBC or the show’s current head writer Stephen Moffat have yet to comment on whether they will accept Wire‘s effort when he completes it.

They are also inviting fans to win tickets to an intimate gig in London on August 5. For more information go to their official website
