On Filming In Wales…

As we’ve reported firsthand, Torchwood: Miracle Day has been premiering to live audiences around the nation, which of course means that Cardiff, the birthplace of the show, was privileged with a screening earlier this week that had been particularly anticipated by many involved in the making of the series.

Executive Producer Russell T. Davies spoke excitedly at the event about the slightly-lessened (as compared to previous series) Welsh shooting.

“One of the first scenes in the first episode is at the (white National Trust) house in Rhossili. I spent my life wondering what it was like inside and I never thought we would get it, but lo and behold we managed it. It was a joy to film there and it looks epic and huge.”

Gwen Cooper actress Eve Myles added this extra-mild spoiler:

“It was unbelievable to film at Rhossili, it was wonderful. I had always wanted to live at that house and the beach is where I walk my dog, so it was unbelievable to blow it up!”

Look at you, you’ve read this far and now you know what happens; in episode 1, Rhossili blows up. Sorry to ruin it for you.

See if anything else blows up when Torchwood: Miracle Day premieres with The New World on Friday, July 8th on Starz in the US and some unknown later date on BBC One in the UK.

    Yeah, thanks for that :-(

    Obviously I will have to avoid all Dr Who and Torchwood sites with immediate effect.
    I’d hoped to last out until 7th July but the spoilers have already started.

    So, thanks for the entertainment this site has provided thus far but I shall not now be returning here until i’ve managed to watch the new series of Torchwood spoiler free.

    God alone knows when that will be!
