Doctor Who Location Update (Spoilers)

Filming on season 31 of Doctor Who took place last week at Brangwyn Hall in Swansea, reports GallifreyNewsBase.

Previously seen in Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, and Torchwood: Children of Earth, shooting for this episode – expected to be taking place late in the series run – isn’t exactly shrouded in secrecy, with the legendary set reporters of the GallifreyBase forum easily finding their way there to report on the appearance of stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan along with some items of set dressing, a co-star and others.

You probably don’t want to know who or what was seen – naturally this is sensitive, so if you’re inclined, follow the instructions, or else go read another article!

Alex Kingston has been spotted, proving that the character (heavily suggested to be the Doctor’s future wife) is appearing in two stories, having already been spotted and photographed on location with Smith and Gillan last summer.

Also spotted were Nick Briggs, voice of the monsters and Dalek operator Barnaby Edwards. Rumours are likely to fly around the web that the Daleks are appearing in two Doctor Who adventures in 2010 – they’ve already been spotted on previous location shoots, and two distinct designs appear in the season 31 trailer…

Various props have been spotted at Brangwyn Hall, including those with an Egyptian theme, a polar bear and a dinosaur – interestingly location work moves to the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff this week.

Of course, it’s easy to speculate and leap to the wrong conclusions…
