Doctor Who, Resolution: behind the scenes with the cast and crew

A few videos and social media posts from the production of the Doctor Who New Year’s special, Resolution have emerged over the past few days. Here are some of the highlights I found, plus some set reports.

From Newton Beach in Porthcawl, which served as both the setting for Siberia and the remote island where The Custodians buried the Dalek parts.
