“Doctor Who” series 9 hires “Merlin” director Justin Molotnikov

PanARMENIAN.Net - Doctor Who series 9 has hired Justin Molotnikov to take charge of two episodes, Digital Spy reports.

This won't be the first time Molotnikov has tackled a BBC fantasy series, having helmed episodes of Merlin and Atlantis.

His involvement in the new series of Doctor Who was revealed by his client page on The Agency website.

It is currently unclear which two episodes he will direct, with two slots - episodes 9 and 10, and episodes 11 and 12 - still thought to be open.

Doctor Who's lead writer Steven Moffat has confirmed that series 9 will feature more two-parters, though some pairs of episodes may only be loosely linked.

Scottish filmmaker Molotnikov directed eight episodes of Merlin between 2011 and 2012, eight episodes of Atlantis between 2013 and 2015, and has also worked on Da Vinci's Demons.

Doctor Who - starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman - will return to BBC One this autumn.
