"Hanshaw created this title sequence, put it up on YouTube," Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat explained at a recent fan event in New York.
“I happened across it, and it was the only new title idea I’d seen since 1963. We got in touch with him, and said, ‘OK, we’re going to do that one.’”
Mr Hanshaw thought it was “a wind-up” when Moffat’s fellow executive producer Brian Minchin got in touch. “I had to pinch myself because I didn’t know if it was really happening,” he says.
“It’s one of those stories about people putting something on YouTube - it’s usually a musician this happens to. They put a performance on there and they get picked up by a label. “It’s a similar kind of story. I thought, these things don’t generally happen.”

Our friends over at the Nerdist have added that, 

On the directing front, veteran Who director Douglas Mackinnon is getting three episodes this year, up from the two he did (brilliantly) last series. Aside from Mackinnon, all of the other directors are new to the show and have a long history of work in various fields. Ben Wheatley, of course, is the director of such horrifying features as Kill List and A Field in England, while the two-part finale is directed by American-born, Canadian-working director Rachel Talalay who broke into the business working on the Nightmare on Elm Street films and directing Freddy’s Dead in 1991.

We elected not to tell Peter that he was the only person being considered. It’s quite fun to invite someone into your house and have them read lines. He doesn’t even know he’s got it.
