As the rumours of a Doctor Who movie grow – with a possible announcement at the San Diego Comic Con on July 26th as Russell T Davies and David Tennant take centre stage – eminent Doctor Who director Euros Lyn has been linked to the film.
Lyn has recently finished off the David Tennant TV era as well as helming all 5 hours of Torchwood: Children of Earth; his full list of Doctor Who credits are:
The End of the World (2 April 2005)
The Unquiet Dead (9 April 2005)
Tooth and Claw (22 April 2006)
The Girl in the Fireplace (6 May 2006)
The Idiot’s Lantern (27 May 2006)
Fear Her (24 June 2006)
The Runaway Bride (25 December 2006)
Silence in the Library (31 May 2008)
Forest of the Dead (7 June 2008)
…as well as an episode of the Philip Madoc drama A Mind to Kill, some Casualty and many others all of which make him a pretty good choice. We’ll know more of course once the San Diego Comic Con comes around – in the meantime, let’s check out Euros’ work on Torchwood: Children of Earth!
It is as ever pinch of salt time – this rumour could well be borne of the same linear logic that joins Kasterborous in speculating on an SDCC announcement, so beware…
