Who’s On the Beach?

Matt Smith in action as the Doctor as production of Series 7 continues

A slideshow of images featuring Matt Smith, Arthur Darvill and Mark Williams on location on a beach somewhere in Wales has been published online, revealing little more than some bad weather.

The location – described by WalesOnline as “secret” – was apparently windswept and misty, with the visible dampness in the air resulting in some very chilly-looking long-distance shots.

Although the Doctor and Rory were seen with their new friend (Williams has been rumoured to be possibly playing Rory’s dad) there was no sign of Amy Pond in the scenes that were being recorded. Karen Gillan is believed to have been either working elsewhere or having a rare day off.

We think you’ll agree that the Doctor looks pretty dynamic in this shot, although if you visit the slideshow linked to above, the atmosphere changes into “people standing around trying to stay warm” – which is, of course, the majority of time spent on a location shoot.
