THIS PLEASES ME LIKE A GREAT PLEASING THING
From The Guardian UK:
The most important credit is, of course, Blackadder.
Richard Curtis, the creator of Blackadder and driving force behind Comic Relief, is to write an episode of Doctor Who.
Curtis, whose film credits include Notting Hill, Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral, will write one of the episodes starring the new doctor, Matt Smith. Filming began on the new fifth series of Doctor Who, which will air next year, around six weeks ago.
