Behind the scenes of The Stolen Earth / Journey’s End (Part 2 of 8)
Excerpts from Doctor Who Magazine #398, behind the scenes of The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End as reported by Benjamin Cook
Production on Doctor Who has ground to a halt. Tools have been downed. Cameras abandoned. And for why? Because make-up artist Steve Smith has arrived on set, in the Nobles’ living room, carrying a mongrel puppy dog called Jack. “What is it?” asks Bernard Cribbins.
“It’s a dog,” explains Steve.
“Well, I can see that.”
He belongs to the lady across the road. “She just threw it at me,” explains Steve, “and said, Catherine would like to see Jack, wouldn’t she?”
“Oh, I do, I so do,” coos Catherine Tate, taking Jack in her arms.
“Can we get all puppies off set!” pleads Simon Morris, the First Assistant Director. But no one is listening.
“Aww, he still smells of his mother’s womb,” says Catherine, taking a sniff.
“That’s disgusting,” exclaims David Tennant. “Just wait til he pees on you.”
“Nah, I couldn’t have a dog that’s smaller than a cat,” reasons Catherine. “He is lovely, though.”
“Tell people it’s a hamster,” suggests David. Meanwhile, across the room, Phil Collinson is ripping up today’s shooting schedule.
For lunarsilverwolfstar for winning a Gold Medal in the New Who Fic Olympics! She wanted the Eleventh Doctor and Rose, so we worked together and she found me the base picture and I worked Matt into it prior to painting it. I really like how it turned out! Congratulations on winning the gold, sweetie!
This is NOT a Photoshop filter, every stroke is painted by me.
John Smith gives his best friend a present before he leaves for Uni, creating an odd reaction in her.
In fulfillment for @doctorroseprompts prompt:
“I’ve been in love with you forever and in a fit of excitement/emotion/drunkenness I just kissed you and now I’m afraid about what will happen”
In hindsight, the night before John went to Uni was a great night for a party, but not a great night for Rose to drink for the first time.
She wasn’t smashed, per say, but she was uninhibited. Enough that she had cried to Shareen in the bathroom of the club because her best friend was leaving her all alone in London when she still had another year of high school left to get through.
Shareen just rolled her eyes but didn’t say anything. She knew nothing would keep John from seeing Rose. He’d only come back and visit if he missed her (which he would).
