Doctor Who Series 12: filming in a tunnel on Barry Island

Posted Filed under

An old railway tunnel on Barry Island, which is now used as a shooting range, was once again utilised by a Doctor Who film crew.

The tunnel was previously used as the underground bunker in the Series 4 Doctor Who episode The Doctor’s Daughter.

The shooting range in the tunnel was used in the Torchwood episode Ghost Machine.

A fan watching outside the location spotted Jodie Whittaker in her usual costume featuring the light blue coat. This differs from the darker coat Whittaker was recently spotted wearing at the filming at the Galmorgan Building of Cardiff University on March 19.

The production team is currently filming Block 2, believed to consist of Episodes 2 and 3.

Bradley Walsh and Mandip Gill were also present at the filming. Walsh was photographed with fans as he was leaving the filming base on Barry Island after he was finished for the day.
