Doctor Who - Ncuti Gatwa (The Doctor) & Bonnie Langford (Mel Bush)

Doctor Who films scooter stunt on Cardiff streets

Posted Filed under

A film crew recorded scenes for the Doctor Who 2024 series with extras, stunt doubles and an orange Vespa on Park Street in Cardiff on 25 June, 2023.

The stunt doubles were wearing the same costumes as Bonnie Langford (Mel) and Ncuti Gatwa (the Doctor) wore for filming of the two-part Doctor Who 2024 series finale, consisting of Episodes Seven and Eight. Langford’s stunt double drove the scooter with Gatwa’s double sitting in the back while extras appeared to frantically run from an unseen threat.

The props on the street included a double-decker bus, a red telephone booth and a taxi cab of the types typically seen in London.

The Doctor Who crew is expected to film again on Monday, 26 June at the same location.

Doctor Who will return in November 2023 with three 60th anniversary specials starring David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor and Catherine Tate as companion Donna Noble. In the following festive period, Ncuti Gatwa will star in his first full Doctor Who episode as the Fifteenth Doctor. A new Doctor Who series starring Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson will debut in 2024.
