It's almost time. New monsters are becoming real, old friends are returning to Cardiff and somewhere in Wales, a tweed jacket is being taken from its hanger and lovingly dusted off. It can only mean one thing... Filming on the new series of Doctor Who begins on 20 February 2012, as we previously reported!
The first director to shout action will be the award-winning Saul Metzstein whose previous credits include Micro Men (starring Alexander Armstrong and Martin Freeman), the critically acclaimed Late Night Shopping and BBC Wales Upstairs Downstairs. For the very first time, Doctor Who will be produced at the new BBC Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff, which officially open in March.
This may mean he is directing Chris Chibnalls story, which we expect to be the first episode filmed, ATM we are unsure as to what episode number this is, but if this plays like previous seasons, it may be open to the press, so there is a chance of photographs and a report!
