Based on the design of Martha Jones's UNIT Badge from the BBC Website, I have put together an ID Card for Captain Elworthy.

Film Footage

Here are some screenshots from the edited footage that I shot last time I was in Lichfield.

And here are some screenshots of Tennis Balls that I shot last weekend, which I inserted into scenes shot in Lichfield.

Successful Shoot

I returned to Lichfield this weekend to celebrate Dave Cox's Birthday, and this morning we did some filming. We shot some scenes from Episode 1 (so hopefully, part 2 of this episode will shortly be completed on put onto YouTube!).

Below are some of the photos taken during the shoot...

The photo below is not, believe it or not, one of Elworthy's cunning disguises!! It was an attempt by myself to disguise my identity, as I appeared in a scene as an extra who gets killed (damn these blasted cast shortages!)!

However, I am not the first cast member to have more than one part - this was Eliot's third appearance as a different character - and, as with his other two roles, the character he played today will also be killed off horribly!!

More Birthday Wishes

Happy Birthday to David Cox, who plays the part of Professor Paul Richards in my series. I hope he has a good birthday today,

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to Captain Elworthy!

According to the character bio that I wrote when I started making the series, David William James Elworthy was born on this day in 1979. He was the only son of George Elworthy, Earl of Middlemarch, and his wife, Eleanor Elworthy, Countess of Middlemarch. As heir apparent to his Father’s Earldom, Elworthy was given the Courtesy Title of Viscount Blakeney – which he holds to this day, but rarely uses in day-to-day life.

This makes Elworthy 29 today (making him 3 years older than me!).

Film Footage

Here are some screenshots from the rest of the footage that I shot when Dan came to stay.

It is the ‘Q’ scene from Episode 4, in which Elworthy is given his new gadget phone, and a pair of interesting spectacles…

New Commanding Officer

As we know, Doctor Who is back on our screens tonight for a brand new series, and UNIT are set to return in Episodes 4 and 5. In this story they will be commanded by Colonel Mace (played by Rupert Holiday Evans) – who rumour has described as ‘the new Brigadier’.

If this rumour is true, and UNIT’s new Commanding Officer is indeed a Colonel and not a Brigadier, then clearly the British Contingent has been downsized from a Brigade to a Regiment. Funnily enough, this would actually make sense, considering Labour’s Defence cuts over the recent years!

Film Footage

These are screenshots from the last lot of footage that I shot over Christmas, which I have now edited.

It is a scene from early in Episode 4, where Elworthy visits Richards in one of the UNIT labs (which is actually Dave Cox’s parent’s dining room!) to brief him on a new mission.

Fortunately, Episode 4 is set in December, so the massive Christmas tree in the centre of the room won’t seem at all anachronistic!
