Watchmen: BBC Radio Kent/Dominic King Interview

 

 

On Thursday, BBC Radio Kent broadcast a fun interview Tom did with Dominic King. He was asked about being a part of the cast of such an iconic piece of work. Tom responded that he loves provoking a reaction, positive or negative, which is much more preferable to ambivalence. He goes on to relate that he also loved seeing reactions from viewers who knew nothing of the original source material, which includes his mother in law, who said "I don't think I've ever enjoyed something I've understood as little."

King asked him more about his experience shooting in Wales, working wtih Jeremy Irons and they went on to talk about what sets might look like in the age of social distancing going forward. You can listen to the 9 minute interview here. Tom's bit starts at 2:41:15.

Watchmen is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD in all the usual places.

Watchmen: NME Interview

 

 

To mark the release of the Watchmen Blu-ray and DVD, Tom had a chat with Sam Warner at NME. Read the interview in full on their website.

Tom remarked that Damon Lindelof walking away after one season was the classiest move in television he's seen in years, and he's just fine with it stopping there. He calls it a "perfect series."

He also relates how he tried very hard to pry the secret of Dr. Manhattan out of the higher ups on set, but was never quite able to, so he found out the same time the rest of us did.

As for what his characters, all the clones and the Game Warden, would do if there did happen to be a second season? “It would be the question of they’re still on Europa, or whether they managed to escape and an army of butlers come down to Earth to hunt down Ozymandias for leaving them. That’s one idea. Or they just stay on Europa and have a massive orgy until the sun explodes." There you go, Damon.
