If anyone knows how to tell a captivating story about time travelers, it's former Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat.

HBO announced on Tuesday that it's hired Moffat for a TV adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger's novel The Time Traveler's Wife.

Moffatt will write the series, and will also serve as executive producer with Sue Vertue and Brian Minchin.

"I read Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife many years ago, and I fell in love with it," Moffat said in a statement provided to Variety.

"In fact, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called The Girl In The Fireplace as a direct response to it.

When, in her next novel, Audrey had a character watching that very episode, I realized she was probably on to me."
