Danny Hargreaves is a BBC Wales special effects supervisor. He has worked extensively on Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood. He is a frequent interviewee on Doctor Who Confidential and Torchwood Declassified. He was even one of the rare backstage people to appear on Totally Doctor Who. As a result of these appearances, he has become the de facto "public face" of Doctor Who SFX.

His personal credits have largely vanished in the Steven Moffat era, but as of series 11, his company, Real SFX, was very much still involved in the process of making Doctor Who, as well as Class.

According to an interview in early 2016 at the Doctor Who Festival, Danny Hargreaves is still currently in charge of special effects for Doctor Who. Indeed, as stated on the Real SFX website, he is in charge of all projects undertaken by them.

He also continues to work with Russell T Davies in Wizards vs. Aliens and Cucumber, and with Steven Moffat in Sherlock.
