'Doctor Who' Easter Special director revealed

BBC

James Strong will direct the Doctor Who Easter Special in 2009.

Showrunner Russell T. Davies announced the news in the latest Doctor Who Magazine and hailed Strong's previous involvement in the show, having helmed stories including 'The Impossible Planet', 'Daleks In Manhattan', 'Voyage Of The Damned' and 'Partners In Crime'.

"We're so happy that he's returning to the fold," Davies stated. "James has handled Daleks in sewers, hordes of Adipose and Satan himself, as well as a Titanic with Kylie on board."

Davies, who has co-written the Easter Special with Gareth Roberts, added: "But believe me, none of that will have prepared him for what we're about to unleash in this next script!"
