Hettie MacDonald is an English film, theatre and television director who won a Grand Prix award, an International Jury Award - Honorable Mention and a People's Choice Award for her work on the film Beautiful Thing.


MacDonald is known as the director of "Blink", the Hugo Award-winning 2007 episode of the Doctor Who series. The episode is widely regarded as the best episode of the series since its 2005 revival. In 2009, SFX named the episode's climax as the scariest moment in Doctor Who's history, citing its "perfect direction". She has also directed for the stage. She studied English at Bristol University before training as a director at the Royal Court Theatre. She was formerly associate director at the Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich.
