Rachel Talalay directing two episodes of Doctor Who series 8
Tank Girl director Rachel Talalay is helming two episodes of Doctor Who series 8, starring Peter Capaldi.
There may not be any female writers announced thus far for Doctor Who series 8, but two of the episodes of the next run are to be directed by Rachel Talalay, it's been revealed.
Talalay came to prominence for her work directing Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare and Tank Girl. Since then, she's built an impressive career on the smaller screen, helming episodes of shows such as Haven, Continuum and Supernatural.
Talalay is a self-confessed fan of the show, although she's staying mum as to the content of her two episodes thus far. She joins the likes of Paul Wilmhurst, Paul Murphy, Ben Wheatley and Douglas Mackinnon as directors on Doctor Who series 8. More details as we find them....
