Doctor Who - 8th Doctor Season 3 Behind the Scenes: Here come the Drums!

The drums of war are getting closer! In fact, editing on War Drums has concluded! Another story ready and waiting to be released soon!

I must apologise that I have been very silent the last week or so, the reason for that was very much down to editing. War Drums is a single 18 minute episode, however due to the content of the story there was a ton of special effect work that needed to be done. I'll be honest, it was far more than I anticipated. I intended to have this story concluded by the 2nd, but sadly I was unable to hit that deadline. It's those Dalek dome lights, they're a nightmare.

For your enjoyment I have released a few images from the finished story, and I apologise for the Windows Media Player bar across the bottom, but they are behind the scenes pics after all! Along with these I am very pleased to announce the addition of Jonathon Carley to the cast! Jonathon is playing... well you'll just have to stay tuned for that one...

Back on Gallifrey, the Castellan prepares the troops! Inspired by the more heavy metal, arse kicking warrior Time Lords seen in The Day of the Doctor, Gallifrey now has a proper set of warriors to do battle with the Daleks. Don't worry though, the traditional Chancellery Guards are still staying put! 

What's this? Star Wars vs Doctor Who? No, those aren't B-Wing fighters attacking Dalek Saucers! Those are Bowships! 

Despite rotoscoping elements of the Mill's impressive CGI work, alas my own space battles aren't so impressive. But suspend your disbelief as the TARDIS works its way through the Dalek blockade. 

That's it for now folks! Stay tuned for more news and info over the coming weeks! I've said it before, but the trailer will now even more likely be out in April! So it's not long! That's giving me time to get editing on The Treasure of Mars, which will begin tomorrow! I'll have a proper date for you as soon as possible!

  1. I've really been enjoying your Eighth Doctor series Matt. I'm really excited for the Time War era episodes like this one. As much as I liked John Hurt's performance as the War Doctor I couldn't help but wonder what "The Day of the Doctor" would've been like with Paul McGann as the eighth Doctor instead and your series looks like it will be the perfect alternative.
