BBC Wales Director Rhodri Talfan Davies said, “Doctor Who is getting even bigger and even better - and it's a real thrill that the show's fans here in Wales will be the very first to see the new Doctor at this very special premiere screening. Doctor Who has been made in Wales for almost ten years - and we're so proud of its worldwide success.”

Cabinet Member for Community Development, Co-operatives and Social Enterprise, Cllr Peter Bradbury, said, “We are delighted that St David's Hall, the National Concert Hall of Wales will be the host venue for this exciting worldwide premier.

“The launch of the Doctor Who World tour will be a fantastic event in our city and no doubt a highlight on our cultural calendar. We look forward to welcoming fans from across Europe to enjoy the hospitality of St David's Hall.”

Award-winning children’s novelist and screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce confirmed as Doctor Who writer

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 5:05am

Children’s novelist and writer for the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony Frank Cottrell Boyce completes the line-up of writers for series 8 of the hit BBC One show Doctor Who.

Cottrell Boyce’s episode for the eagerly-anticipated eighth series will feature a cast of child actors including Harley Bird, the voice of household favourite Peppa Pig, alongside Abigail Eames (Harry and Paul, The Crimson Field), Ashley Foster (The Woman in Black) and Jaydon Harris-Wallace (CITV Text Santa).

Also known for films such as 24 Hour Party People and Millions (directed by Danny Boyle), Cottrell Boyce says: “Of all the thrills that pen and paper have brought into my life, there’s nothing that quite compares to the buzz of unlimited possibility that rushes through your fingers and into your brain when you write the words: ‘Interior … TARDIS’.”

“I was flabbergasted to be asked to write an episode - partly because I’ve been so absorbed in the last few series that I’d sort of forgotten that it wasn’t real.”

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, says: “Frank's script is pure magic - and everything I could have hoped for from the genius behind the Olympics opening ceremony! Doctor Who is born anew in the mind of a genius!”

The episode will be directed by Sheree Folkson (Casanova, Hit & Miss), and produced by Paul Frift (Escape Artist, Best Possible Taste, Restless).

Other writers confirmed for the eighth series are Mark Gatiss, Phil Ford, Gareth Roberts, Peter Harness, Steve Thompson and Jamie Mathieson.

Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Saturday 23rd August.

Workshop: The Art of Mobile Photography

Art Trap Productions - Thu, 06/26/2014 - 12:36am

I’m pleased to announce a new summer workshop on mobile photography titled (fitting enough), The Art of Mobile Photography.

It is often said that “the best camera is the one you have with you.” In today’s world, that most likely means your mobile phone. The art of making images is less to do with the gear and more to do with the photographer. The core basic principles of photography apply whether you’re shooting with a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera or your mobile phone’s camera (i.e. iPhone, Android, etc.). In this workshop, we will explore those principles and what you can do to make better images without spending a great deal money and have fun in the process.

Julie Gardner and John Barrowman Awarded MBEs

BBC - Doctor Who - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 9:37am

As we reported over the weekend, one of Doctor Who’s former executive producers, Julie Gardner and John Barrowman (Captain Jack in Doctor Who and Torchwood) have both been awarded MBEs in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Julie said she was honoured by the award and commented, ‘I have filmed all over the world. But the talent, stamina and sheer fun of the writers, cast and crews I’ve worked with in Wales is beyond compare. I am lucky; I get to keep this award. But I am accepting it for all those brilliant people who have made my job such an absolute joy, and for my dad who will be the talk of Glynneath. My proudest achievement has been to successfully bring Doctor Who to Wales. From there, through Torchwood, Casualty and Da Vinci's Demons, Wales' position in the global television industry goes from strength to strength. I am hugely proud to have been a part of that journey and will work hard so that this is just the beginning.’

John said, ‘I can’t tell you how honoured I am to get this MBE, to be recognised by Her Majesty and also by the United Kingdom because that’s where I can consider my home.’ He added, ‘I am chuffed… Thank you very much, everybody! And to the fans: this is also for you guys. It’s amazing! Thank you!’
