Did You Know?


Boyo's severed head in the episode "Eater" was produced by first taking a cast of actor Glyn Morgan's own features and then reproducing this in wax. This was then worked on sculpturally to create the torn flesh look of the neck. The wax copy was then molded in fiberglass giving a negative mold from which a skin of silicone was then produced. This skin was then painted using reference photos of Glyn. Eyes for the head were hand-painted to match Glyn's from photographs of his eyes and inserted into the silicone head. The final step was the hair. To make the hair look as if it is growing from the head each hair has to be inserted into the silicone skin with a special needle one by one. The process took almost three days. Even the eyebrows and eyelashes had to be inserted individually to complete the effect. See more »

if you have never heard of urban gothic then i cant really blame you, channel 5 isn't exactly associated with high quality entertainment, or a good picture quality for that matter. its one of those little gems that you happen to catch one late drunken night while flicking through the channels. it has some top rate performances from little known/haven't had a job in a while actors and the scrpits contain some of the darkest humour around (the frog in the blender scene comes to mind)urban gothic has filled the gap that there seems to be in true horror TV (im not counting buffy etc as true horror) it is pure student television and some of the episodes are true genius. one of its main strengths though, is that each time you see it it gets better and develops new and even more twisted hidden meanings and social comments. if only it had the money of a primetime bbc show it could have been one of the best television shows around. however maybe the reason it is so special is because it is so hidden and unrestrained by ratings and strict corporate bosses. long live urban gothic, spread the word and lets all hope that it gets a third series.
