The Age of Steel/Rise of the Cybermen Behind the Scenes (Part One)

Excerpts from Jason Arnopp’s behind-the-scenes article from DWM #370

     Bringing Cybermen on-set triggers an obvious learning curve.  This first becomes apparent during a scene in which Rose runs for one of the ballroom exits, only to bump into some relentlessly marching Cybes.
     Thing is, these men-in-suits can’t see exactly when to stop and Billie really does bump into them.  “Oops,” she winces, lightly shaking one hand.  “They’re really hard.”
     In another take, the lead cyborg topples backwards like a knight in armour, threatening some kind of Cyber-domino collapse.
     “There’s a real danger of us trampling each other,” David admits to Graeme.  The director readily agrees and takes extra-special care to bark “Cut!” at the optimum moment.
     Further difficulties arise when the circle of Cybermen tightens on the guests.  Besides the unpredictability of people running around petrified, the Doctor and Rose have to thread their way through the melee.  Tension before the take is only slightly dissipated by a sneeze inside one Cyber-head…
     Graeme makes a request:  “As the Cybermen go in, can they raise their arms?  Because that’s how they’re gonna kill people.”
     “We can’t get touched, obviously, cos we’d die,” David calls back.  He thinks it over further.  “If we do get touched, shall we die?”
     As it happens, he and Billie don’t make it through the circle.  They end up squashed in the middle of everyone, with Cyber-hands very much grabbing them.  The Doctor and Rose meet a horrendous demise.

     Watching as the Cybermen reposition themselves around the party guests, Billie and David show genuine admiration for the supporting artists’ commitment.
     “Those poor guests are carrying real champagne glasses, aren’t they?” ponders Billie, like a concerned parent.
     “Yes,” marvels David.  “And phials of the ebola virus…”

The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love. Whether it’s a world, or a relationship, everything has its time. And everything ends.(requested by anonymous)

I don’t know about you guys but I am psyched to get an education, woo. This year is a hella important year for me because if I don’t finish this school year with five As then I am a dead man walking, you get me? So this started off as a collection to help me get those fabulous As but I thought, what the hell? I’ll share this perfection with everyone else because sharing is caring. Anyways, down to the nitty gritty

010. TIPS FOR SCHOOL N STUFF BCUS I WANTED TEN BITS

  • try your best. not everyone can get all As, and getting all As does not make you better than everyone else. just do the best you can and be the best person you can be.
  • don’t sleep in class! i know it seems so so tempting but slept my way through geography last year and i got a C in my exam instead of the expected A so…
  • Don’t tick off your teacher, follow the rules to an extent, get to class on time, respect your classmates and teachers. you know, just be a decent person.
  • be positive!!! and not just for the first week or so, keep the positivity going throughout the whole school year. if you don’t believe in yourself then why should anyone else?
  • "you can do it, wildcat, i believe in u" — something troy bolton said one time probably definitely
