BLOOPERS! – Warriors of the Deep

I thought I`d share some of the many bloopers – other than the Myrka – to be found in this story as a sort of trailer for the forthcoming Fan Edit, which will be uploaded tomorrow, Whoflix Fans!

First, even though it`s dark in the Silurian ship, you can still see that someone hasn`t tucked themsleves in…

… and be warned – this isn`t the last we`ll see of this. Oh, and keep an eye out for the bloke who crashes into those little pedestal things with cyber guns sticking out of them; restricted vision can be a real bugger in the studio!

Next, this isn`t the console cable, it`s the cable of the camera taking the shot of the scanner in this scene…

THIS is the console cable – looks like they`re still using the same white Gaffer Tape as they did on Pyramids

Next, here`s our first boom mic in shot…

And if you`ve ever wondered how that console cable gets connected up…

This is the wobbly set moment everybody knows about, but look to the left and you can see the top of the set. You can see it a couple more times in this scene too!

Boom Mic In Shot #2…

It`s not only Silurians who have trouble tucking themselves in it seems…

…and did you spot the other blooper in that shot? Well, just in case you didn`t, here`s a better look at the wonderful things you can do with Black Gaffer Tape!

so that`s white G-tape for console cables, black for Sea Devil kilts and Silver for the front and rear panels on their tunics – you did spot that didn`t you?

Next, studio lights reflected the monitors on the set – also works for shiny Sea Devil helmets too!

anyone know that Mike Oldfield song Boom Mic Shadow On The Wall?

I feel sorry for those poor sods stuck inside the Myrka – here`s how you can tell they`re in there…

Whoa, check those flares! Silurians didn`t even have those back in the Seventies! And I really like the matching brown shoes, nice!

That boom mic shadow`s still there…

…and keep an eye on Maddox when he`s being brainwashed, there`s another one which doesn`t screengerab too well but trust me, it`s there all right!

Seems it`s not just the back of the neck that`s causing problems with these costumes – and this isn`t the only Sea Devil with a neck problem [I resisted the temptation to mention turtle necks - oh, until just now when I did. Bugger!]

FFS! Talk about a warbrobe malfunction!

well, that`s three reasons for not having brightly-lit sets with no shadows!

Seriously, was there no-one from wardrobe on set when this story was filmed? And this isn`t him splitting his trousers btw, this is a white tie cord – the same bright idea someone would use on the Vervoids later…

Boom Mic In Shot #3…

Everybody knows this is wet green paint from the Kyrka costume being worked on right up until filming the bloody thing…

… but what you might not have spotted is another cameo appearance from the two poor buggers inside it!

Boom Mic In Shot #4

And here`s it`s shadow…

Wardrobe are never around when you need them…

… I mean, are you seriously trying to tell me absolutely nobody spotted this on a monitor? I mean, I know they were pushed for time in studio but how long would it have taken to tuck him in? Sheesh…

I don`t know what I like more about this shot – the fact that we`ve got Boom Mic In Shot #6 or the fact that on Seabase they use bubblewrap instead of a duvet! WTF?

Boom Mic In Shot #7!

Looks like Pixar, sorry Icthar, hasn`t noticed his vortex manipulator thingy needs a bit more double sided sticky tape to hold it on… Wardrobe! Oh, what`s the fucking point…

Okay… Warbrobe – You`re Fired!

even the shadows don`t help…

there`s that white cord again….

… did they never think of dying the fucking thing?

And Finally…

it looks like the Hand Of Sutekh has fallen through a Time Corridor!
