Ben Wheatley to helm ‘Doctor Who’ episodes
Ben Wheatley, who is best known for having directed ‘Kill List’ is set to helm two episodes of Doctor Who in the eighth season of the show, which will star Peter Capaldi as the new 12th Doctor.
Series eight will air in 2014 and is to be the first to feature Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor, with the Thick of It star replacing current lead Matt Smith in the show’s 2013 Christmas special.
“I am very excited and honoured to be asked to direct the first two episodes of the new series of Doctor Who,” said Wheatley. “I’ve been a fan since childhood.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Peter Capaldi and finding out where Steven Moffat is planning to take the new Doctor.”
Doctor Who returns to BBC One for its 50th special ‘The Day of the Doctor’ – starring Matt Smith and David Tennant – on Saturday, November 23.
