Doctor Who Filming News

Filming for the new series of Doctor Who seems to be in full swing from the amount of reports that have come out.

Seen something Doctor? Peter Capaldi up a tree at Bute Park in Cardiff.

Wales Online yesterday were reporting that Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman were seen in Bute Park, along with the TARDIS and even a Minotaur type creature. The Minotaur was last scene in the episode The God Complex. Capaldi is reported to have been climbing trees, looking through binoculars and covered in cuts and bruises.

Jenna meanwhile was bundled up and signing autographs for watching fans.

As per usual, details from the new series have been kept very under wraps so what it all means is unclear. From the little we have seen of the new Doctor, I am very intrigued.

So what do you think? What do you want from the new series of Doctor Who? Is there anything you don’t want to see? Leave a message below.

You can find more pictures from the filming  of Doctor Who and even some behind the scenes tit bits from the filming of His Last Vow, the Sherlock finale from the last series, at the Wales Online article.

New Doctor Who News

A new character for the next series of Doctor Who has been announced by BBC America!

Keeley Hawes, from Upstairs, Downstairs and Line of Duty, will be playing a character called Ms. Delphox. The only information released about the character is that the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) will meet her when they land on a mysterious and puzzling world and that she has a dark secret.

It is still unknown when Doctor Who will première on British or American screens but no doubt more information will be released soon.

New Who Companion Revealed

Clara and the new Doctor are getting a new friend to join them in the TARDIS. BBC News are reporting that Samuel Anderson, who has previously appeared in Gavin & Stacey and Emmerdale, will play Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School with Clara. Little is known about Anderson’s character but Anderson himself  has said:

“I was so excited to join Doctor Who, I wanted to jump and click my heels but I was scared I might not come down before filming started. It’s a quintessential part of British culture and I can’t believe I’m part of it. It’s an honour to be able to work alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and I can’t wait to show people how my character becomes involved with such a fantastic duo.”

Episodes four and five are currently being filmed of series eight.
