Doctor Who Series 12: Jodie Whittaker and the Judoon in Gloucester

Posted Filed under

Doctor Who filming continued in and near Gloucester Cathedral on Thursday, May 23 after filming the previous day.

Jodie Whittaker delighted fans by stopping to greet them. Nick Pasquet, who agreed to let us use his photos, shared his story of the encounter:

“I arrived at Gloucester Cathedral at 10:30am and within 10 minutes, Jodie immediately made a specific effort to come and meet the fans. She gave everyone their own time, asking everyone’s names as well as taking photos for older fans. She was full of energy and looked happy to be interacting with fans of all ages. A fantastic experience and day!”

When Jodie Whittaker was finished greeting her fans, she left to film inside the Cathedral.

Doctor Who Producer Nikki Wilson was busy on nearby Berkeley Street producing special effects shots with two actors dressed as Judoon in front of a green screen.
