Spotlight: Midnight, Texas Set Visit + Interviews & Exclusive Photos - 2018 - UPDATED

Midnight, TexasStarting September 12th, SciFi Vision was once again lucky enough to be invited to a press day for a Midnight, Texas set visit in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The NBC series is based around Charlaine Harris' book series.

The setup of the schedule was different this time. For the first day, we interviewed the first set of cast members and then visited the backlot, ending with a catered Mexican dinner. The following day we interviewed the remaining cast members as well as the new producers. We also had a guided tour of the set interiors, as well as of the costume van. Both days we got to watch scenes being filmed from the monitors in the Cartoon Saloon.

Below, please find links to all of the articles that have been published so far for the event. This page will serve as a landing page and will continue to be updated.

Spotlight: Midnight, Texas Season Two Set Visit - Day Two: Set Visit & Interviews + Exclusive Photos

Midnight, TexasDay two of the Midnight, Texas press day started out similar to the day before. The other journalists and I met at the hotel and were picked up and driven to Stage 9 at Albuquerque Studios. Stage 9 would once again be our base camp, at least for the start of the day.

First up were the round table interviews. First to our table was François Arnaud, who plays the character of Manfred Bernardo in the show.

One of the things Arnaud discussed is how the series will be a bit different this season because of the new showrunners and teased a bit of what’s to come. “I think the writers this season really expanded the mythology. I mean, I’m really surprised at how ambitious it became. It really departs from the book. It’s still relationship centered, but it departs from the soapy dynamics of the couples. By the end of the second season, we physically move into other realms, and it’s surprising to read at first, but it all makes sense. They tie up loose ends, and by the end of the season, the world that the writers managed to create with the show goes well beyond Midnight and well beyond the physical world as we know it. It’s very cool.”

Advance Preview: Doctor Who's "Rosa" is Timely and Poignant

RosaOn tonight’s episode of Doctor Who, the TARDIS has a mind of her own and brings the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and her friends to Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, where they encounter the seamstress Rosa Parks (Vinette Robinson). They quickly realize it’s the day before that fateful day when she refuses to give up her seat on the bus and changes history. But can they preserve that history?

This week, the Doctor is all in and knows who she is. This time, to me, she really feels at home. She has become the new Doctor, her own version, and it feels like a normal episode of the series now, not like she’s just testing the waters.

Her interactions with the companions were once again enjoyable, and I really felt her sympathy for what they were facing in the episode. The Doctor is always about fairness and equality.
