Planet of the Dead Footage
io9.com have compiled available photos and even a 3 minute video (also seen here) of filming one take of the final scenes of Planet of the Dead – some of which may not make it to the finished version due to damage to the Dubai-located version of the bus.
You may have already heard that a duplicate of the bus used for shooting in Cardiff was shipped to the Middle Eastern port, but horribly damaged by the crane used to unload it for lcoation shooting.
Over on the io9.com website, there is footage of a scene being filmed wherein it would seem the missing bus returns to London after its adventure on the alien planet represented by Dubai. It appears to go like this:
The UNIT soldiers at the tunnel’s mouth applaud at the bus’ return, with each of the original bus passengers disembarking, followed by the Doctor. Someone who appears to be Malcolm (Lee Evans) runs over to the Doctor and greets him with Captain Mogambo (originally seen in Turn Left) then greeting the Doctor.
After the Doctor fiddles with the sonic screwdriver, and Mogambo salutes him, the TARDIS is revealed and the Doctor bids farewell to Christine (Michelle Ryan).
The majority of the information above including the video and the images on the io9.com website originate on the Doctor Who Forum.
