The fun has officially started in London after the Doctor Who crew was seen filming for the show’s 50th anniversary episode at some famous landmarks.
Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and the TARDIS were seen filming some rather vertiginous scenes around Nelsons Column with Smith hanging for dear life to the bottom of the TARDIS’s outer shell. Coleman.
In a separate scene filmed at the Tower of London the previous day (reports from which we shared with you yesterday) Coleman, Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart) and comic Ingrid Oliver were also seen filming together.
Everyone seemed in high spirits as you can see from the two location videos that we’ve included here and it looks like we’re in for a treat for the 50th as the Eleventh Doctor returns to London and once again comes across trouble at some famous landmarks.
Recently in Doctor Who, we’ve had a couple of modern thrillers for the Eleventh Doctor including The Power of Three and The Bells of Saint John but it’s always nice to have that ‘Russell T Davies era’ feel come back to the show, especially to get audiences more excited. And, of course, as it’s the Doctor’s birthday, it seems only right that he should celebrate the affair in London.
There was no sign of David Tennant or Billie Piper at this location, sadly, but we’re sure there’s still more to come from them…
