Doctor Who filming in Cardiff

Posted Filed under

A large section of Cardiff Bay Link Road in Cardiff, Wales was closed off for Doctor Who filming late Sunday night, February 10 for a night shoot.

One person at the scene captured a photo of the filming involving automobiles, one with a camera mount.

A large crane with a floodlight illuminated the scene.

Several Cardiff residents reported seeing the floodlight.

The filming continued into early morning Monday, February 11.

There is also a report of “seagulls” at the location. From what we understand, there were large birds resembling seagulls “floating” in the air at the filming location.

The “floating seagulls” could have been drones mounted with cameras for filming. Since seagulls are not an uncommon sight in Cardiff Bay, a person watching from a distance and unfamiliar with drones could possibly have mistaken them for birds.

The filming was for Doctor Who Series 12, which airs very early in 2020.

Prior to Sunday’s filming, a Doctor Who Series 12 crew wrapped on a three-week location shoot in South Africa.
