the women directors of Doctor Who

fabulous gif. 

Alice Troughton also directed for Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures and as such is one of the only directors (maybe the only director?) to score the Russell T Davies hat trick. I loved the fact that The CW’s resident time travel show starring Arthur Darvill, Legends of Tomorrow, ran episodes directed by Rachel and Alice nearly back to back this past season. And the fact this show had female directors in the 1960s (at a time when Verity Lambert was still considered a novelty act as a producer by many) is outright amazing.
