Doctor Who & Torchwood: Starlog Magazine: Digital Doctors

Starlog Magazine has an excerpt from their interview with visual FX supervisor Dave Houghton and visual FX producer Will Cohen, from their issue # 364 on sale now, at:

A brief excerpt:

STARLOG: How has the first season of TORCHWOOD worked out?

HOUGHTON: There are a certain amount of production pains in ramping up a new series. We started late, and then we sat down to discuss it without seeing a script, which was a problem. It's like saying to an architect, "How much is it going to cost to build a house?" There isn't a plan to assess that, so we sat down and discussed the broad themes.

I think TORCHWOOD was supposed to be a much more psychological drama than it ended up being.

COHEN: It's a good amount of work, but it's maybe 20 shots instead of 100. Given the nature of how TORCHWOOD has evolved, it's actually a unique British television show.
