The final director for Sherlock Series Three has finally been officially confirmed, and his name is Nick Hurran.

The third episode in the series, whose title has yet to be revealed, is written by Steven Moffat.

Filming on S3E3 is currently set to begin in late July. Production of Sherlock Series Three remains on a scheduled break to allow cast and crew to fulfil other commitments, while post production continues on S3E1: The Empty Hearse and S3E2: The Sign of Three in the meantime.

After his presence on Twitter was announced yesterday by Production Designer Arwel Wyn Jones, Nick used the first post on his new account to officially reveal his involvement with Sherlock Series Three - a suitably teasing first glimpse of the interior of the script of S3E3.

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 recently completed filming the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special written by Steven Moffat, due to be broadcast in November 2013 as the centrepiece of the celebrations.
