Doctor Who Series 12: Cardiff stands in for Paris for a night shoot with Jodie Whittaker

Posted Filed under

Cardiff hosted another Doctor Who night shoot on Tuesday, March 19. This time the area of the Glamorgan Building of Cardiff University was set-dressed as Bois de Boulogne, a park in Paris.

A number of extras were reported to be on the scene along with Jodie Whittaker, whose costume seems to include a darker version of the thirteenth Doctor’s coat and socks.

And there is a glimpse of what looks like a white collar underneath Jodie Whittaker’s bulky coat.

A large lighting crane was employed to light the night scene as well as equipment used to dampen the pavement.

The era depicted in the filming is believed to be mid 20th century due to the presence of the Cross of Lorraine. A World War II era car with a German Cross was spotted in Cardiff as well.

This is the third Doctor Who night shoot in South Wales this month.
