SFX Tidbits


November 22, 2004  •  Posted By Shaun Lyon
SFX's Christmas issue is out this week, and producer Phil Collinson is interviewed. "I can confirm that the Daleks WILL say exterminate - it would be madness to stop that happening," he tells SFX, confirming what was reported in the press some time ago. "But other than that, we do see this episode as very, very important, for both old and new viewers... It would be a shame to give away too much. But I can tell you that the Daleks will be doing things they've never done on screen before... If ever you've laughed at them, prepare to have the smile frozen on your face..." Collinson also talks about the possibility of the new series having pre-title "teaser" sequences. "All the early episodes have got the potential to do this, in the edit, and we're starting to like it so much that we're actually writing them in to later episodes." But, he adds, "If we sit in the edit and don't like them, we can change our minds at the last minute." (Thanks to SFX Magazine and BBCi)
