‘Doctor Who’ Season 10 to film in Vancouver?

Posted Filed under

The Doctor Who team will apparently be heading to Canada later this year as filming on the new season continues.

The second block of filming for Season 10 is currently underway in Wales, comprising of Episode 3, written by Sarah Dollard (‘Face the Raven’), and Episode 4, written by Doctor Foster creator Mike Bartlett.

Peter Capaldi reportedly told fans on set yesterday, verified by several sources on Twitter, that location filming will be taking place in Vancouver, BC in October.

If true, this won’t be the first time Doctor Who has shot there. Paul McGann made his debut as the Eighth Doctor twenty years ago in ‘The TV Movie’, which was filmed entirely in Vancouver in 1996.

‘The TV Movie’ is coming to Blu-ray for the first time next month.

Many US sci-fi TV shows make the most of the stunning BC landscape, including Supernatural, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and The X-Files.

Interestingly, director Rachel Talalay – who helmed ‘Dark Water’, ‘Death in Heaven’, ‘Heaven Sent’ and ‘Hell Bent’ – is a film professor at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and has previously directed episodes of Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow in the city. Could she be returning in Season 10?

Talalay was also recently linked to the upcoming Captain Marvel movie.

The new season of Doctor Who began filming in Cardiff in June and will air on BBC One in spring 2017.

Here’s everything we know so far about Season 10.
