Planet of the Dead Delayed?

The production of Planet of the Dead – already hampered by inapproproate overseas filming – appears to have been delayed further following the damage of a very important plot element.

As we learned ove the weekend , the shipping of red London bus to Dubai lead to the vehicle becoming damaged, so much so that filming was delayed.

Apparently rewrites have been made and issued – the concern now however is that such rewrites will push the production schedule of Planet of the Dead beyond what is acceptable for an Easter broadcast.

There is also a possibility that this delay could also hamper production on the following episode.

Of the filming that has been done already in Cardiff, there are some behind the scenes snaps available for your viewing pleasure over at the website, who also speculate that the red London double decker bus may even be written out of the plot altogether – the photos may even prove to be a record of unused footage in Doctor Who…
