Manic Street Preachers bassist Nicky Wire has revealed that he’s writing a script for Doctor Who.

Wire said the script was based on the Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas, who died in 1953.

On a completely different tip, I’ve been trying to write a script for Doctor Who called Do Not Go Gently,” he wrote on manicstreetpreachers.com.

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

As previously reported on Gigwise, Manic Street Preachers are set to play a one-off secret show in London next month.

It will mark the launch of their new album 'Postcards From A Young Man', which is released in September.
