Modern Greek Mythology

 Hestia comforts the children of broken homes, she appears to them as a school councilor that always has cookies. They cry in her arms, and she lets them stay with her for as long as she can. She stopped calling home, stopped making strongly worded comments to the parents. All there is left are broken homes and suffering children.

 Hera sits next to her sister, holds her hand and thinks about the broken marriages that lead to broken homes. She listens to the couples yelling at each other while she walks on the streets. She holds the crying women, she listens to the hopeless men. All of the power that a goddess of marriage possesses cannot help the people who were betrayed by their closest ones.

 After a long day, Demeter sits on the ground in her garden, holds a cup of tea in hands that have dirt all over them. She wishes that more people would remember what is under all of the concrete. She feels the dying of her world, and curses those who do not care for it.

Behind the Scenes of Planet of the Dead - Part Six

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s set report in DWM 408:

[on trying to film during a sandstorm]
“Not only was what we were shooting looking horrible,” James tells DWM, “because we had no light… and this massive desert landscape, you couldn’t see it… I mean, we could have been in a car park at Upper Boat… but also sand was being blown in our faces constantly. The actors couldn’t open their eyes.”

“Problem is,” says make-up designer Barbara Southcott, “it’s on high-def, so you’ll see every bit of sand on their skin.”

“You’ll have to paint it out,” make-up artist Steve Smith teases The Mill’s Dave Houghton.

“Frame by frame,” nods Dave, “grain by grain.”

“I know it’s not easy, guys,” calls out John [Bennett, First Assistant Director]. “Let’s just do what we can.” But David’s hair has turned blonde. (Daniel [Kaluuya, who plays Barclay] dubs him “Barry Manilow”.)

The sand is sticking to everything. Worst hit is Tracie Simpson, whose lips are actually yellow. This is her first episode as Doctor Who’s producer. It’s a baptism of fire - no, of wind! Of wind and sand and lipstick.

Forgetting that Dubai is four hours ahead of the UK, DWM decides to text a message of support to Russell T Davies in Cardiff - you know, something encouraging and inspiring. But somehow we manage to send one that says: “SANDSTORM! CODE RED! ABORT! ABORT!” Surprisingly, Russell messages back: “I’ve got you texting with ‘SANDSTORM!’ and Julie [Gardner, executive producer] phoning with ‘SANDSTORM!’ I’m hooting. Save yourself, Ben.” Perhaps we should hide in a Portaloo until it’s all over? (We don’t last long. It stinks in here. Besides, a queue was forming.)

Back outside, the majestic crane shots intended for this morning are abandoned. The crane is dismantled and taken away. “I thought, let’s shoot everything that we can against the bus,” James explains later. “…but the actors all looked like they’d been tarred in sand and dragged through a hedge.”

The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 14]

Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365

Sean [Sycorax leader] is now ready for his big confrontation with the Doctor. “Under all this latex,” he reminds David, “I’m an extremely sexy, gorgeous, attractive, blue-eyed blonde.”

Yeah, right, that’s what all the Sycorax say.

“It seems like ages since I’ve said any lines,” David laughs.  “It’s been like a week! And some people say actors have an easy life…”

——-
And how does he like spending virtually the whole episode in pyjamas?

“It’s fantastic on a day like this,” he laughs. “The caves were quite cold, but I had my dressing gown, which is very warm.  I mean, if it had been bucketing with rain today, I would have been fantastically miserable, obviously, cos these are fairly sheer pyjamas, but it’s worked out all right. It’s boiling. Next to poor old Sean, who’s wrapped under a latex duvet from dawn till dusk, with horrible contact lenses irritating the heck out of him, I’ve got away quite lightly, I think.”

Thank you to everyone who shared set photos!

I like weird people…The black sheep, the odd ducks, the rejects, the eccentric, the loners, the lost, and the forgotten. More often than not, these people have the most beautiful souls.

Trying to recover from the heartbreaking last chapter and bumped into a quite beautiful quote randomly. Somehow first thing that crossed my mind after seeing it was that I could imagine this quote for Luffy. He knows every one of his dearest nakama carries a hole in their heart and that none of them is perfect. But still he never judges them for what they’ve done, he always stays loyal to them, no matter what kinds of ups and downs they have faced. 

He truly loves all of them, just the way they are.

Behind the Scenes of The Runaway Bride - Part Six

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s “Things We Learned This Christmas” article in DWM 378

  • Russell T Davies is nine foot tall, according to BBC Radio Wales
  • But he isn’t remotely scared of spiders. “Cardiff Bay is a breeding ground in the Summer,” he bemoans. “You end up crawling with bloody spiders. Leave your window open at night, and you wake up webbed! I’m fed up of them, and this is my revenge.”  The Runaway Bride is all Cardiff-inspired, then? “Yes. Next year, it’ll be Doctor Who and the Speed Bumps!
  • Interviewing Euros Lyn as he makes his way up a mountain in Dublin isn’t as hard as you might think. “I’m filming a show for the BBC,” he explains, “about a policeman who wants to avenge his wife’s murder.”
  • When Donna tries to hail a cab, the script specifies: ‘Fast and zippy sequence. Music like Yello’s The Race.’ However, Murray Gold composed a Yello-inspired orchestral piece.
  • David Tennant only pretends to be Scottish for a wacky gimmick. Really he’s Welsh. Honest!

How many ‘love’ lines are there between the Doctor and Rose? About six! And yet it’s talked about as the central spine of the series. Well, that’s a bit disingenuous, because that’s what I wanted, but we didn’t really have to try.
