The director of the 50th Anniversary Special of Doctor Who has been confirmed as Nick Hurran! He confirmed the news himself at the Glasgow Film Festival earlier today. Hurran had previously directed 4 Doctor Who episodes:
The Girl Who Waited (by Tom McRae) The God Complex (by Toby Whithouse) Asylum of the Daleks (by Steven Moffat) The Angels Take Manhattan (by Steven Moffat)
All episodes were positively received and I'm sure, like me, fans are eagerly excited to see what Nick has in store for this very special episode! Filming for the as of yet untitled special is due to begin in April and it is written by Steven Moffat.
The episode will materialise on our screen on 23rd November 2013 along with the Mark Gattis written special 'An Adventure in Time And Space' sometime before
