Milk VFX were tasked with creating the visual effects for global simulcast and cinema release of Doctor’s Who’s “Deep Breath”, Peter Capaldi’s debut episode as the Doctor. The ep is the first in the eighth series of Doctor Who and was directed by Ben Wheatley.

Milk’s VFX Supervisor Murray Barber talks to Mike Seymour about the effects that included robotic men and ancient dinosaurs in the streets of Victorian London. In all the team of some 40 artists created 117 shots, including 87 shots featuring the sinister and mysterious “Half-Face Man” – the principal villain.
