Who Goes There Feature

BBC News has run a piece on the new book Who Goes There?, which takes in various locations that have hosted Doctor Who location shoots, both recent and old.

Penned by Nick Griffiths, the writer apparently got the idea after watching some 1970s Doctor Who.

"There was an old railway station in an episode I was watching and I suddenly thought ‘I’d really like to go there, that looks really strange and unusual’," he said.

"I had a quite a lot of fun trying to find the place anyway and when I got there it was fantastic being able to stand in the spot where the Doctor had stood."

The real world location of Bad Wolf Bay certainly gave Griffiths a thrill it would seem:

"I did love Southerndown. The strata are incredible," he said.

"There was no one else there when we visited and as we wandered around you got totally taken in by it all.

"Doctor Who had been filmed there only about six months previously so there was a real "sense of Who" there."

Nick Griffiths hopes that buyers of his book decide to hop into their cars and drive off to see the sights (and sites) of the lcoations for themselves.

Who Goes There is currently available from Amazon for £5.99, a saving of two pounds on the RRP.
