Doctor Who series 11: director revealed for block three of episodes

Doctor Who series 11 is introducing another new director to the show, with the third block of episodes for Jodie Whittaker’s first run set to be steered by Sallie Aprahamian.

Aprahamian has directed shows such as Teachers, This Life, Extremely Dangerous, The Sins and The Lakes in the past. She’s got a strong background in theatre direction on top of her sizeable television CV. And as per her agent’s webpage, she’s now been revealed to be directing two episodes of Doctor Who series 11.

She’s directing block three of episodes, the next to film once director Mark Tonderai has wrapped up work on the second block. The identity of those episodes remains a mystery, as you might expect.

The news of Aprahamian’s appointment was spotted by @Ruther2 on Twitter, here…

The directors of block four and five of episodes are also unknown – at least to us! – at this stage.
