A Swansea Institute graduate, has been working on the much anticipated new series of Dr Who for the BBC. 3D computer animation graduate, Gareth Pugh from Abertillery, worked with the BBC during the summer after completing his course at the Institute.

Gareth worked on animating the title sequence for the cult sci-fi series and also got to work on a number of other projects while he was there.

“I had a great experience working at the BBC, aswell as working on the new Dr Who series, I also got to work on the title sequence for Scrum 5 Live and did some animating for the Eisteddfod,” said Gareth.

The series is being overseen by Swansea-born writer Russell T Davies and stars Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper.

Part of the new series was filmed in the city around the Queen’s Hotel near the Marina earlier this year.

Meanwhile on the subject of special effects staff, prosthetics wizard Neill Gorton’s work on the new series was mentioned on UK Channel Five’s “Jordan Gets Even”. The show feaured the pneumatic-breasted model disguising herself as a much older woman, thanks to Gorton’s latex wizardry.
