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.
