It seems you can no longer walk onto the Brandon Estate without bumping into the Doctor Who production team these days!
Seemingly making the most of their trip to film in central London last night, the production team arrived at the Brandon around 8am for a half day’s filming. Series regulars David Tennant, Billie Piper and Camille Coduri were onset for the filming of one scene involving The Doctor’s reaction to an unseen entity.
After the leads finished their scenes a number of shots of extras were filmed. These involved two sets of extras also reacting to the (same?) unseen force. Filming of one set of extras involved a large green screen suggesting that elements will be added in post production.
Although we weren’t present for the earlier part of the filming we understand that David and Billie signed autographs for the few observers who were present.
One local parent arrived after the two had departed wanting an autograph for her daughter. As during the filming of The Christmas Invasion, the production team were very obliging and soon returned with autographs from both leads.
Directing the filming was Graeme Harper, with Producer Phil Collinson and Director of Photography Ernest Vincze also in attendance. We understand the filming may have been for episode 12, ‘Army of Ghosts’.
Filming broke up shortly before 2pm, just before the rains started to fall!
