Ben Wheatley Is Headed To Gallifrey
Strap in kids, because Dr Who is about to get weird. Given that we already have a John Hurt vs Peter Capaldi, Bad Doctor vs Good Doctor confrontation in the works for the upcoming season that's not exactly news but the BBC is turning in a surprising direction to make it happen.

Word is out that Kill List and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley is on the director roster for the upcoming season of the BBC staple. There doesn't appear to be any official word about his involvement, or how many episodes he will direct, but the Tweet above - and you better believe Empire would not have retweeted it unless there was something to it - indicates that he's on board for at least one episode.

So, what say you? Is Wheatley a good fit here? And who else would you like to see direct episodes of the coming season?

At the Etrange Festival the director of the festival announced Mr Wheatley was supposed to direct two new episodes of Doctor Who.

Very cool! How has this not spread until now?!

Ben Wheatley is an amazing director, but Doctor Who is beyond awful, and not in a good way.

Oh man I know they said no more angels, but I hope he does the angels.... or something scary at least.

Beyond awful? That's a little harsh.

Still your opinion, but damn.

Getting to chat with Mr. Wheatley for a few minutes after seeing The Devils was the highlight of Fantastic Fest. I'm sure his work on the show will be awesome. Moffat's brought in some interesting writing talent like Neil Cross, Richard Curtis and Neil Gaiman but we haven't ever seen anyone interesting in the director's chair.

Will watch anything directed by Ben Wheatley.
