The Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol was closed to automobile traffic overnight from Tuesday, October 22, 7:30 p.m. to Wednesday, October 23, 6:00 a.m. for an “assessment” — and Doctor Who filming!
A young pedestrian who was on the bridge discovered the filming with Daleks, one with a new, black and silver design.

Met old friends for a curry and, on a whim, went for a stroll over the bridge. Only filming the Dr Who Christmas Special – nine daleks, in formation, on Clifton Suspension Bridge!!! You have been warned Bristol…. pic.twitter.com/SVBZni4OuO

“Your DNA is impure” was the Dalek dialogue overheard from one of the onlookers. Since Daleks are strict about their racial purity, one might guess that a Dalek with impure DNA might be blown to bits by its fellow Daleks.
With only a short time of filming left for Doctor Who Series 12, we will continue to bring you more news on production as we learn more.
