Stephan Pehrsson

Born: Monday 10th November 1975 (age: 48)


Stephan Pehrsson is a Danish cinematographer who began his Doctor Who career on The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang — both directed by his former film school classmate, Toby Haynes.

Much of his work in the late 1990s and early 2000s was in Denmark.

During the 2005-2006 season, he was the director of photography on a long run of episodes of Doctors. The next year he worked on Bad Girls. In 2007 he began to work on a number of shows that Toby Haynes also had worked on — Coming Up, M.I. High, and Holby Blue — though they only worked together on M.I. High. He also began a three-year stint on Holby City. Like Haynes, then, he had a fairly extensive relationship with Kudos Film and Television — the same production company for which Piers Wenger and Beth Willis worked while making programmes in the Life on Mars franchise. In 2009, Pehrsson was the cinematographer on a few episodes of Hustle. Immediately prior to his work on the series 5 Doctor Who finalé, he re-teamed with Haynes on Five Days, starring David Morrissey.
