Fans Go Rogue

Doctor Who fans were the subject of police activity recently as a group of them trespassed in Wookey Hole Caves, allegedly used in a location shoot for The End of Time, reports

Apparently looking for some sort of inside information (you know, left behind props, a script wedged behind a rock, etc…) the social outcasts that decided to invade one of the UK’s most important sites cannot be seriously referred to as fans until the drop the unhealthily obsessive behaviour and learn some patience…

According to the local paper concerned, scenes were filmed at the location earlier this year:

But one fan spotted the BBC’s unmarked vans at Wookey Hole Caves, extras wearing monk-like robes and a secretive David Tennant, who spent most of his time in his trailer before heading off to film in the Witch’s Parlour.

Wookey Hole Caves could be seen as part of the home planet of the Ood, one of the most popular monsters introduced in the new series, or for the fabled planet of Gallifrey…

…or possibly both?

However little is known of The End of Time it seems bewildering that anyone would take these sorts of steps to try and pre-empt the outcome by visiting a tourist attraction 6 months after the shoot wrapped.
