Incorporating motorcycle antics on the south bank and around Westminster streets, plus scenes in the shadow of the Shard near London bridge – the shoot finished off with some pickups on Wednesday back at Senedd building in Cardiff.
Director Colm McCarthy wryly tweeted:
Five cameras on a corner of a street in Cardiff shooting Dr Who for an hour. Nobody has noticed yet. Too late Whovians! We’re out of here.
