Nick Hurran comes to Sherlock Series Three with over twenty years experience in television and film directing, from early work in studio directing the final series of British chat show mainstay Wogan in the 1990s to star studded later dramas including The Last Detective in 2001, starring Peter Davidson; and Walk Away and I Stumble, a two part miniseries starring Mark Strong.

Nick has numerous credits in film, including Plots with a View (2002) starring Alfred Molina, Brenda Blethyn, Christopher Walken and Naomi Watts, and Little Black Book (2004) starring Brittany Murphy, Holly Hunter and Kathy Bates.

More recently on television Nick directed the six part reimagining of The Prisoner in 2009, starring Ian McKellan, Jim Caviezel and Ruth Wilson. He also has previous experience working with Hartswood Films, being behind the camera for all six parts of the 2012 comedy Me and Mrs Jones.

Amongst all this, Nick has directed several episodes of Doctor Who since the sixth series - including the spectacular Asylum of the Daleks and the emotional The Angels Take Manhattan, which saw the departure of long running companions Amy and Rory. He was also director of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special The Day of The Doctor written by Steven Moffat, which was broadcast in November 2013 as the centrepiece of the celebrations.
