DigitalSpy have released a Q&A with Adam Smith, the director of episode one, The Eleventh Hour, and the Weeping Angels two-parter, which concludes tomorrow night at 6:25PM on BBC One/HD.

Explaining how his involvement with the new series came about, he told the website: “I was asked to come in for a meeting with the BBC. It was a meeting with Steven Moffat and Piers Wenger, who is the head of drama at BBC Wales, and Beth Willis, who is one of the executive producers.”

He added: “I hadn’t watched a lot of the show so it was new to me. My nephews and my aunt are big fans but no, I hadn’t really watched it except for a bit of Tom Baker in the seventies. I remember when I was about five or six, my brother told me that the title sequence was actually a camera passing through the inside of a shark and I believed him!” You can read his full interview over at DigitalSpy by clicking here.

The BBC have today released the first batch of images from Episode 7, Amy’s Choice, which is written by Simon Nye and will air on May 15th!

Not much is known about the episode at present (the official synopsis will be released by the BBC Press Office later today), but from what we have already picked up from various filming developments and rumours, it looks set to be one of the most intriguing episodes of the new series so far – and these episode stills can definitely vouch for that!
