Aspects of production covered[edit | edit source]

  • Karen Gillan explains that her cast mate Arthur Darvill is hooked on texting and their lunch breaks following filming can push into 4:00 P.M. She is also shown undergoing extensive applications of makeup and latex prosthetics to give her a very aged face. Gillan expresses distaste for the thought that the wrinkled appearance is a glance into her own future, but she personally did not want an older actor to be cast in her place.

Additional topics covered[edit | edit source]

  • Arthur Darvill swims with sharks.
  • Karen Gillan learns to drive.
  • A Day in the Life: Focus Puller.
  • Script to Screen storyboard meeting.
