Doctor Who Series 7: Asylum of the Daleks

Nick Hurran to Direct 50th Anniversary Story

We can now declare that Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary story is in pre-production with the confirmation from director Nick Hurran today that he is taking the director’s chair!

Doctor Who Series 7: Asylum of the Daleks

Speaking at the Glasgow Film Festival earlier today, Hurran shared little about the Steven Moffat scripted story, leaving us only able to speculate on the contents of the 3D story which apparently starts shooting in April.

Hurran has good experience of Doctor Who, having brought us Series 7’s Asylum of the Daleks and The Angels Take Manhattan as well as Series 6’s The God Complex and the acclaimed The Girl Who Waited.

Are you happy with Hurran, or is there someone else that you would prefer for this very special occasion? Let us know in the comments section below – which director do you think would do the 50th anniversary justice?
