Ben Wheatley to Direct First Two Episodes of Series 8

Screen Daily has confirmed that Ben Wheatley will direct the first two episodes of the next series. Wheatley's previous work includes Down Terrace, Kill List, and Sightseers. His work is going to begin in December, according to the article, and continue into the next year.
Wheatley will direct the episodes for series eight through December and into the new year for transmission in autumn 2014.

It will see the filmmaker direct Peter Capaldi, the Thick of It star who was confirmed in August to take the role from outgoing Matt Smith.

“I am very excited and honoured to be asked to direct the first two episodes of the new series of Doctor Who. I’ve been a fan since childhood (Tom Baker is my Doctor if you are asking),” Wheatley told ScreenDaily.

“I’ve been watching the current run of Doctor who with my son and have discovered it all over again. The work that has been done is amazing. I’m really looking forward to working with Peter Capaldi and finding out where Steven Moffat is planning to take the new Doctor.”
