I spotted something VERY interesting on Facebook last night.
There is a closed group for costumer designers and people in the industry to network and exchange ideas as well as recruit staff for short contracts on current productions.
Last night an appeal for an experienced costume supervisor appeared in the group, posted by Heyley Nebauer.
What caught my eye was that it was for a television series; the period for which the role covered; and where it was being filmed.
Could this be Doctor Who? If so, is Hayley Nebauer the new costume designer?
This would make some sense as I gather Ray Holman was pre-booked for the third and final series of Broadchurch, leaving the Doctor Who position open.
Hayley has worked on a number of series in her time, including The Musketeers, which comes to a conclusion later this year.

NB - I have posted this article retrospectively as at the time I did not want to cause problems for Hayley as she settled into her new role. Since her posting appeared on the costume group, she has deleted her Facebook account and the advert has disappeared. I think this is rather sad.
