In the United Kingdom, the "Doctor Who" firmament is to British TV in the 2000s what Paramount's many "Star Trek" derivations were to the American syndicated airwaves in the '90s. And standing smack dab in the middle of this former universe is director Colin Teague. Along with guiding star of the title David Tennant in a trio of "Dr. Who" episodes in 2007 and 2008, Teague has worked as a director on two related Dr. Who BBC series: "The Sarah Jane Adventures" (one episode) and "Torchwood" (four episodes). Teague's most voluminous single-series TV directing work has come since, via the unrelated BBC fantasy entry "Being Human." He has overseen more than a half-dozen episodes of a show with the intriguing premise of three roommates who just happen to be, respectively, a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost. Teague first made his mark in 2002 as co-director, with Glenn Durfort, of the rough-and-tumble TV gangster movie "Shooters." Actor Gerard Butler has a small role as off-kilter supplier Jackie Junior, and the film as a whole has been favorably compared to the signature cinematic works made by countryman Guy Ritchie.
