"Drive" director "turned down" for Doctor Who

The director of last year's hugely popular film Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn, has revealed that he wanted to direct an episode of Doctor Who - but was turned down. He told Short
I would have loved to direct Doctor Who but they didn’t want me — they turned me down last year. Maybe if they revive Blake’s 7 I could do that. I love it. It’s great. That could be fun to update.

Winding Refn turned down on a TV show in which the hero's only real power is his ability to talk.

Go figure.
