Posted Filed under

A film crew recorded scenes for the Doctor Who BBC centenary special in Grange Gardens, Cardiff, Wales on September 20. Some photos of John Bishop and and Bradley Walsh at the filming have surfaced.

It began with the construction of the TARDIS prop at the location.

John Bishop was photographed at Grange Gardens, confirming that the Doctor’s new companion Dan Lewis will appear in the centenary special as well as Doctor Who Series 13 and the 2022 New Year’s and spring specials.

John Bishop shared a message on social media stating that this was his last day filming on Doctor Who and that his experience will make great material for his future comedy gigs.

“Well, that a wrap. That’s the last day on Doctor Who completed. I’m just leaving the lot now. Nearly a year of my life and I wasn’t expecting to do it at all and it’s been absolutely brilliant so I wouldn’t have swapped it for anything. I know you haven’t seen it yet but honestly, it’s been amazing! Everyone’s been great. I’m so grateful to them – and I’ve also got loads of great material from it!”

Bradley Walsh, who left Doctor Who after the 2021 New Year’s special Revolution of the Daleks was also photographed at the filming location, confirming that companion Graham O’Brien will reunite with the Doctor.

Jodie Whittaker (the Doctor) and Mandip Gill (Yaz) were also at the Grange Gardens filming, as was director Jamie Magnus Stone. Photos of them can be found here.

The Doctor Who BBC Centenary special will air in Autumn 2022. It will be the last for Jodie Whittaker’s thirteenth Doctor.
