Oh f*** not Ben bloody Wheatley. He directed A Field in England, an awful film that people only saw for the novelty of it being released in the cinema, on DVD and being shown on TV at the same time.
Expect these episodes to be incredibly pretentious.


Never heard of him,or that film,it's all passed me by I'm afraid.Don't suppose he's related to the horror writer Dennis Wheatley by any chance?

I say give the guy a chance. At the very least it's a nice bit of publicity having a name director. No one seems to be taking Peter Jackson's offer of directing episodes seriously, and we might just end up with a well directed couple of episodes with plenty of atmosphere. WHEN we get them. And will it be yet another half series that STARTS in 2014. That's what worries me.

Funny way to treat a 'flagship drama'.

Peter Capaldi DOCTOR WHO Panel - Fan Expo Boston 2019


Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi hit the stage at Fan Expo Boston 2019 to talk about his amazing career, his thoughts about the Doctor and answer fan questions. This panel is a must for fans of Doctor Who! The Twelfth Doctor was quite different from his predecessors and Peter Capaldi played it well. This fine actor is also known for The Thick of It, World War Z, Torchwood, The Hour, The Musketeers and has recently completed a role in The Personal History of David Copperfield (based on the Charles DIckens book, not the magician). Sonic screwdrivers were held in salute to greet Peter Capaldi and celebrate 12's run as the crazy man from Gallifrey.

Four minutes in and Peter says he and Moffat never really discussed what he should do with the character. Instead he, as a professional actor, "just show up and do what's written; try and make that work. But I wanted to make him an alien creature who found it difficult to relate to human beings".

A damning indictment of the Moff, imo.

Talk and work with your damned star! :(

That is pretty slack.
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

Fraser likes Peter...... :)

He explains: “I loved Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and was fortunate to meet him when he was filming it in Cardiff and I was doing a play.

"Some of the actors when they take over are like, ‘I’m the Doctor now. This is how things will be done – forget how it was before’.

“But Peter wasn’t like that at all.

“He did this scene and when he finished he pointed to me in front of all the cast and crew.

“He then said, ‘See this guy here, if it wasn’t for him and his Doctor we wouldn’t be here working today’.

“The whole place gave me a round of applause.

“What a truly lovely man.”

Hmm. Who would that be?
