Cole, who plays the Doctor’s companion Ryan Sinclar in the program, can be seen mimicking the opening scene from the movie The Lion King, which recently premiered as a live action film on Sunday, July 14 in London. The film crew can be seen laughing and enjoying his performance in the dramatic South African scenery, likely at sunrise.
The Doctor Who cast flew to Cape Town South Africa on January 19 and completed filming scenes for three episodes of Series 12 on February 7.
Lion’s Head can be viewed from Table Mountain National Park near Cape Town. The crew were filming in that area the week of January 21-25.
Doctor Who Series 12 is set to premiere very early in 2020. We will bring you more news of production progress as we learn more.
