Doctor Who Series 12: New Production Designer

Since it was announced that Doctor Who Production Designer Arwel Wyn-Jones would leave after Doctor Who Series 11 to work on the Hartswood Films production Dracula, Rules of the Beast, we wondered who would take his place.

We’ve discovered that Doctor Who Series 11 Art Director Dafydd Shurmer was promoted to Production Designer, according to the online CV of a Graphic Designer for Doctor Who Series 12, Benjamin Davis.

Shurmer has been an Art Director on many productions including Sherlock.

A different Production Designer, Darryl Hammer, was in charge of the portion of the production filmed in South Africa but it appears Shurmur is now the main Production Designer for the series.

We look forward to seeing what Shurmer does with the production design for Doctor Who Series 12.
