Dr Who is back! Now in it’s 60th year the phenomenal BBC sci-fi show has a new Doctor in the form of Ncuti Gatwa and his first full adventure aired on Christmas Day.
The Doctor’s first case was The Church on Ruby Road where he faced off against some very mischievous goblins intent on stealing a bay for their king’s dinner!
Brian was working with 5 other puppeteers to bring the amazing giant creation by Millennium FX to life. Brian performed the animatronics and onset vocal performance while the rest of the team crammed inside the beast to provide psychical movement. All under the ever-watchful eye of creature choreographer Paul Kasey.
