As some of you may know I've worked on and off for the past few years on Dr Who, designing and creating some of the fabulous alien characters with Millennium FX, the talented folk responsible for the series' prosthetics and creature effects. We try very hard to keep any new creatures or characters out of the public eye but sometimes (largely due to the intense interest shown by the shows' dedicated fans) it's just impossible! Yesterday (18th March) within hours of finishing filming the latest episode in a breezy Cardiff park images of the newest creature appeared on the internet. I'm not going to provide links here as I feel I'm still bound by the NDA (non disclosure agreement) I sign for each season but a simple Google search, for those of you interested in spoilers, will find you eyeball to eyestalk with the newest addition to the Dr Who menagerie. Enjoy!

Once the show has aired I will post my own pics of the beastie, of whom I'm very proud!!

Hello, how are you doing?
Kaduflyer Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Professional Filmographer
I'm doing very well thank you. Last day of my last night in Portugal, tomorrow it's back to good old England, teaching and work!

how about you?'s life and what are you up to?
TheFemaleDoctor1073 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Portugal? That's a beautiful place. :)

I'm doing alright, I finally got some commissions going.

Life is very dramatic but it's very easy to handle. I'm trying to get a job at McDonalds right now. Maybe one at my theatre. That could really help out with my future... There are two theatres around here, so good experience and money. I'm hopefully going back to public school, planning to do drama. Already started getting myself at 6, I take the bus. I promised myself I'm going to try and get A's and B's for the rest of highschool, not let anything put me down. Only have my mornings and lunch free if it is for friends. I'm finally getting a tablet for art, very excited.

I'm working on commissions right now, my chibi cats. I have Geronimeow and Purrlock done haha, Purrlock... Most clever name..

How's your life and what are you up to? :)

Sounds like you have some pretty busy times ahead. Best of luck with your studies and yes, always make time for your friends…they are important in life too!

I'm back in the UK now…holidays over! I'm going to be doing some personal work for the next week or so and then start teaching in September for 7 weeks…after that who knows? Dr Who maybe or I've had a couple of film offers that may start in October. Thats the nice thing about my job…its always a bit of a mystery what I'll be doing next.

Do you know if they're going to have cursing in the new Doctor Who series?
Kaduflyer Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2014  Professional Filmographer
If by cursing you mean swearing then absolutely not.
We have very definite guidelines for the show and blood, swearing or overt sexuality or even nudity is most definitely not allowed.
This season has a much more adult, darker feel than the last few had, mostly I think because Peter Capaldi wanted to push his interpretation of the character into new territory and not just continue with previous actors versions. I've also been allowed to push the creature design a little more. I was never a fan of the idea that DW is a 'kids' show so the creatures should be slightly child friendly and comic, which was definitely the design ethic of earlier seasons (particularly the very early ones). For one of the new creatures I was allowed to do it as full on as I would have done for an adult orientated movie.
If you've seen anything on the internet about the last episode I shot you'll know that the cybermen make an appearance (the net is full of the very public shooting we did so this is not me revealing anything I shouldn't be) and their episode is very dark indeed and sure to give some kids nightmares. I kind of approve of this though, the cybermen were always my favourite villains and until now I don't think their reimagining has made them anywhere near dangerous enough. Next to the Daleks they were always the Doctors most deadly of foes but since the shows new beginnings they have always come across as a bit clunky and easy to this new season they take a whole new direction that I thoroughly approve of and think their double episode might be one of the highlights of this new season.

The season starts airing over here in a few weeks time....and I guess you'll get it a little later this I'll let you know how it goes down (without spoilers of course)
