Doctor Who, Orphan 55: behind the scenes

Posted Filed under

The BBC released a video depicting some filming of the third episode of Doctor Who Series 12, Orphan 55.

The cast and crew shared some photos from the filming.

The location filming for the episode took place in the tunnel of a former underground bunker now used for a shooting range on Barry Island and in Tenerife in the Canary islands.

Filming in Tenerife began with a base in Los Gigantes April 2-4. The crew traveled to the volcano Mount Teide to film the desolate landscape of the planet Orphan 55.

Makeup effects artist, sculptor, painter and monster maker Javier Aliaga shared two posts of the creation of the Dreg.

Director of Photography Ed Moore shared posts of filming the Dreg, played by creature actor Spencer Wilding.

The production moved to Santa Cruz, Tenerife on April 5 to film outside of the Auditorio de Tenerife.
