Directing Who

So, with the Key to Time watch over, I decided to press on through the show in chronological order, meaning that over the weekend I watched Destiny of the Daleks.

Okay, it's not the best serial ever transmitted (still - City of Death next, which is all kinds of yay! and has John Cleese and Julian Glover in it). Putting it mildly. But, I found Ken Grieve's direction and camera work to be rather captivating, and I couldn't help wondering, if he's still directing (and he certainly was up until 2009 when, according to imdb, he worked on some episodes of Law and Order: UK), it'd be interesting to see him work on some episodes of nuWho. Wondered what anyone else reckons about that?

Speaking of which, I notice that Richard E Grant is the guest star for the Christmas special. Hmm. So he finally gets to do proper Doctor Who after The Curse of Fatal Death (cute, sexy and lick-the-mirror handsome), The Scream of the Shalka, and The Two Doctors in Cumbria Withnail and I. Which is good. Even better if he ends up playing an alt/future Doctor, although I guess that's more than a wee bit unlikely...
