Doctor Who's Matt Smith Makes Directing Debut

Matt Smith will be on the other side of the camera soon as he makes his directing debut for Sky Arts' series of one-off plays, Playhouse Presents.

The episode Matt directs will be called 'Cargese' and will be shown on the 25th April 2013 on Sky Arts. The play revolves around a group of disaffected teens and stars Craig Roberts, Joe Cole and Avigail Tlalim. Filming is due to begin next week. Matt said: "Sky Arts offers creative opportunities that many other channels don’t. To collaborate with Simon Stephens in this capacity was a thrilling and rare opportunity and one we both were keen to embrace."

Sky describes the episode as "A unique piece of poetic realism which mines the tragic seam of adolescent love and loss."

Good luck to Matt on his directing debut.
