Director Tweets Teasers

Doctor Who director Richard Clark – responsible for the first recording block of 2011′s Series 6 – has teased fans online with tweets from the set.

Clark is in charge of two episodes; one is Neil Gaiman’s highly anticipated entry into the Doctor Who universe, while the second is believed to be by Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead, The Idiot’s Lantern, Victory of the Daleks, Sherlock.)

According to his Twitter account (@rclarkie), Richard Clark – who has been revealing a few cool things (such as the block designer being Michael Pickwoad, whose past work includes Paul McGann and Richard E. Grant movie Withnail & I)  – has run into some problems with lighting and fainting performers, but generally production seems to be going well on the two episodes…

Big finale today. Complex. Lots to co-ordinate. But it’s looking seriously gorgeous.

Matt’s performance [is] a joy. Wonderfully talented actor. Sadly can’t reveal anything about guests, except that I’m delighted.

Another relentless day lifted by a set visit from the writer. Lights refused to play ball and one of the poor performers fainted.

We think this is the first time a Doctor Who director has tweeted news from the set (or close by) of Doctor Who, so if you’re not already, started following @rclarkie and hope that more is to come from other directors!
