If you are uninitiated in the Dollouse-verse or need a refresher – here are the top things you need to know in this …

Beginners Guide To Dollhouse Season 1

• Dollhouse was created by writer/director Joss Whedon, who directed the Avengers movie and created the TV series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’

• The show stars Eliza Dushku, as Echo, who has starred in films such as True Lies, Bring it On and Wrong Turn

• The idea for the show came about when Eliza and Joss went for lunch

• The show is based on the idea of a corporation running several underground organisations (known as Dollhouses) which program individual people (Dolls)
with temporary skills and personalities

• Brain hacking is the process through which Dolls are given their temporary skills/personalities. Each week the creators devise new methods for the characters to be brain hacked, treating them like machines that can be endlessly rewired

• After each scenario Echo returns to the mysterious Dollhouse where her thoughts, feelings, experiences and knowledge are erased by Topher, the Dollhouse’s genius programmer

• During the show Echo takes on various personalities including; a backup singer, a midwife, and a hacker

• The character of Whiskey, played by Amy Acker, was the number one Doll until her face was scarred by Alpha, a rogue Active, so that Echo could take the top spot

• The theme tune to the show ‘What You Don’t Know’ that features in the opening and closing credits is from American folk rock singer Jonatha Brooke

• In 2010 Joss Whedon announced that he and Maurissa Tancaroen had written a comic book entitled ‘Dollhouse Epitaphs’
