Planet of the Dead Dubai Photos

The BBC America website Anglophenia has featured brand new snaps of David Tennant and his Planet of the Dead costar Michelle Ryan on location in Dubai.

The middle-east city is of course home for exotic location shooting in the next Doctor Who special, standing in for an alien world where a red London bus mysteriously ends up – with the Doctor and Lady da Souza (Ryan) on board.

Also appearing in Planet of the Dead are comedian and actor Lee Evans while Noma Dumezweni returns as Captain Erisa Magambo, last seen in Turn Left.

A selection of Tennant and Ryan snaps are available at the Anglophenia blog.
