Colm McCarthy  * Director

Colm McCarthy
Colm McCarthy

Colm McCarthy comes to Sherlock with an excellent background in British Television Drama, having previously directed episodes of Hustle, Murphy's Law, The Tudors, and Spooks, as well as the two hour television film Endeavour - the prequel to Inspector Morse. That piece of work proved such a success for producers Mammoth Screen that a series of four further films were greenlit to production, with Colm helming an additional episode.

Colm has already had his work on television screens in 2013 with the broadcast of two episodes of the popular BBC drama Ripper Street, and has directed the Steven Moffat scripted opening episode of the second section of Doctor Who series seven - The Bells of St John - which broadcast on March 30 2013 in the UK and USA. The episode made considerable use of the iconic cityscape of modern day London, which holds great promise for Colm's work on Sherlock Series Three.   

In 2010, Colm made his feature film directing debut with Outcast, a Celtic legend based 'creature feature' horror featuring James Nesbitt, with a further feature entitled Hidden Mountain currently in development.
