Indications from several sources suggest that shooting of the 31st series of Doctor Who is set to continue this week at one of Britain’s most historic sites.
As we approach the launch of the new series – Spring is just a couple of months away – location work recently returned to the Old Vicarage in Rhymney, South Wales where portions of Matt Smith’s first episode were filmed.
The next few days will apparently however see the shoot moving to Stonehenge.
What is most remarkable about this is not the location itself but the fact that it has taken nearly 50 years to set Doctor Who adventure at the famous neolithic site in Wiltshire. Even more astonishing, the landmarks proximity to Cardiff would suggest that it might have featured already during the Russell T Davies era.
Nevertheless, it seems Steven Moffat has got there first!
