Doctor Who ‘Ascension of the Cybermen’: behind the scenes

Posted Filed under

The BBC released two behind-the-scenes videos from the making of the ninth episode of Doctor Who Series 12, Ascension of the Cybermen.

Bradley Walsh had the most challenging stunt of the main cast in the video about stunts, which required him to launch himself into the air and land on a mat.

In the second video, showrunner Chris Chibnall, producer Matt Strevens, costume designer Ray Holman and Jodie Whittaker talk about the design of the Cybermen and their technology.

Sacha Dhawan shared a photo from behind the scenes:
