‘Doctor Who’ gallery: 12 new pics of this week’s filming

The second block of filming for the new season of Doctor Who began this week in Cardiff.

Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie, who play the Twelfth Doctor and new companion Bill, were spotted in period costume shooting scenes for what is believed to be Episode 3, written by returning writer Sarah Dollard, who wrote Season 9’s ‘Face the Raven’.

Dollard recently joked: “I don’t kill the companion this time.”

Several photos of this week’s filming have been posted by fans on Twitter.

Block 2 is directed by Bill Anderson and also includes an episode written by Doctor Foster creator Mike Bartlett.

Pearl Mackie has teased: “Amazing read through for Block 2 of @bbcdoctorwho last night! Excellent scripts and wonderful cast! Can’t wait.”

The first two episodes of Season 10 wrapped last week with several days on location at the City of Arts and Science Museum in Valencia, Spain.

    If this is a Victorian episode then could the Paternoster Gang appear

    • Max

      I do hope so! The whole Gang is great as a team, but I especially like Madame Vastra and Jenny. It is great how both those characters are created and both actresses are doing such a great job bringing those characters to life. I especially hope to see them at least once again in the upcoming season, while the current showrunner is still on board.

    • Dr. Moo

      Their presence would fit with the tone of series ten, which appears to be more lighthearted than last year. Just as long as there’s a good enough in-universe reason to bring them into the story then I would be very happy with that.

  • Dr. Moo

    Peter Capaldi REALLY suits the Victorian dress style.

      Dr Who season 10. Not want. NEED !!!

    • JAFischer

      Anyone see him in an adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’ as Scrooge?

      • Dr. Moo

        Wouldn’t that be perfect?

    I was just at the City of Arts and Sciences a few months ago. My first thought upon seeing it was that it looked like an enormous standing set from a 1970s science fiction show, so hearing that Doctor Who filmed there makes me very happy.

    Also, if you ever get a chance, go to Valencia and see it. It’s pretty amazing.
