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!!

Thank you for such kind words. To inspire others is perhaps the best compliment an artist can receive.

4. Both….in moderation.
5. No…you ask a lot of questions….and thats cool…its how people learn!

I checked him out, I really like his artwork, and I can see how he could influence you. It's really nice to have people encourage you like that, if they know they're doing it or not :)

I agree with you on that, other than I do try to do a lot of things well. I can sing little, but not a lot. I'm basically and artist and an amateur writer.

I'm surprised no-one has ranted to me about my name being 'cliche', but in my reality, I act like the doctor. Other from the stuff I learned into my own personality is that I'm always curious, I want to know things that I get into. Also, I can't stand around and let someone feel alone...

I like a lot of McDonalds more, but I enjoy the crowns you get from Burger King, they're cool. Also I'd like to say the food is quicker.

I enjoy getting to know others, but I also ask questions in the classes of mine when I want to know something, everyone else doesn't really. But it's still in the beginning of the year

I've been wondering about your name, I like how it came from a followed band. I can never really stick with anything. But I think I could say the band I keep going to a lot is Red, they have a lot of depression music, I'm not exactly depressed but I think their music is beautiful. I've been listening to a lot of Classic Rock lately though. Other than them, I listen to Chameleon Circuit a lot, because I just enjoy my passion for DW, even though with stress for school is getting in the way. My dad was more excited more the newest episode than I was. Which is really sad...

Johnlock is a shipping name, for John and Sherlock. A lot of fans support it, I don't really ship them although I think they would make a cute couple. I don't know if that makes sense to you or not..

I drink both as well but more tea, I really enjoy mine with milk and sugar. I'd only have it hot though, I like iced tea with sugar, and iced coffee.

I like your answer, I enjoy them both. Since I already took a bit of Psychology, I can realize some sociology that goes on. I studied my surroundings a lot when I didn't have friends, as much as I do now.

I really don't know what I'd want, maybe see the Doctor? I'd really enjoy that.

Hello, how are you? :) ((Sorry if I ask this a lot, I like to conversate with people ^.^))
Kaduflyer Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Sorry for the delay in replying to this but I started tutoring a course at Gorton Studio last Monday and as always it's exhausting and time consuming (I haven't done one since last year and forgot how tiring it is!!), so have had little time to catch up with my mail. 
Other than that I'm very well thanks. With high expectations I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy the week before the course started…but despite all the rave reviews it turned out to be just yet another dull, brainless, story-less, characterless piece of Marvel drivel, oh how I hate these types of movie!!!!
Saw the third Dr Who episode yesterday and again more disappointment. Of the three that have aired so far only one has hit the mark. Capaldi is great as the new Doctor, but as with Matt smith he's being let down by poor writing and weak stories. The one yesterday was so different from the script I read, so much has been edited out that it all feels a bit hurried and incomplete. I long for the days when a storyline would run for four episodes, it gave the writers a chance to develop plot, character and suspense. The modern 50 minute time frame means everything moves at such a frantic pace that we never get the chance to savour anything, never get a chance to slow down and really get INTO it all. Or maybe I'm just getting to old and cynical for the show…I love it dearly but it disappoints me more than satisfies me these days!
Has it started over there yet..and if so what do you think??

It's alright, I've been happily busy with school. :) I'm sure you're a great teacher even though it's hard work. If you'd like some advice, I think it'd be easier for you and the class if you tried to do something a bit fun. Whether it's a project or joke around a bit? I obviously don't know if you do that or not. But I know I love most of my classes because the teachers do that. I'll send you a note about my experience with school right now, and a bit of my plans for the future. I changed it up a little, make it easier on me. I'm glad you're doing well. Yeah, those movies are very cliche. I didn't get the big deal of Frozen either, it was cute. But you kinda could tell what was going to happen.

Yeah, Capaldi isn't getting a lot of good credit when it comes to the plot. The first episode was a bit slow, with the Doctor's personality. I was confused the whole time about that, I know he's the first Doctor to see him actually be new on a first episode. But I love 11, right on the first episode. Matt was able to show his character very quickly. Peter didn't really get to show his till the end of the episode, I just couldn't grasp to anything. I also didn't recognize the hint of 11 on him, till the end either. So I could maybe say it was a bit dramatic? I loved the cyborgs? Though. I was actually caught into that, I thought it was very cool. I also love the new TARDIS and the intro is just awesome!

The second episode was kinda boring in my eyes I guess, they did good with the Dalek's body but I've been playing the Doctor Who - The Adventure Game, and it just kinda took me awhile to put that new information into place. I do enjoy the Doctor's darker side. He's also given a bit more fault into his character, which is good to me. I think people need to realize that the Doctor isn't "perfect" either. I think that's the only reason I bonded with Peter's doctor in the first place. 11, jumped right into it. So I think if the first episode didn't show any of his personality. I probably wouldn't of bonded with him in the next episode.

The "heaven" part is really what I don't get, nor the part of Clara being unsure of 12. She saw his whole lifeline almost. She out of all people should know that the doctor is never the same man? I didn't see the Christmas special for 11's end. So maybe that could be it.

It hasn't really played over here, I've been watching the episodes off the internet. I couldn't bare to not keep up with my passion. I'd get very depressed, which is very hard for me to do now a days.
