The scene filmed in Leominster was a continuation of the scene filmed in Penarth earlier in the week. The same actors and extras were present, dressed for a scene taking place in 1950s Miami, Florida.

The scene was filmed at the OK Diner in Leominster, set-dressed as the 10¢ Diner in Miami. The same rubble props seen in Penarth were also present at the diner, indicating some kind of catastrophe. Director Amanda Brotchie was spotted chatting to the actors.

When finished filming, Ncuti Gatwa spent some time greeting fans.

Filming is expected to resume at the same location on January 25.

A spoiler regarding casting follows.

Actor Lewis Cornay (The Book of Mormon, Spongebob) was spotted at both Penarth and Leominster filming during the week. He was wearing the cap of a diner employee.

According to his Spotlight CV, he is playing a character named Logan Cheever.

Fans won’t see the episode filmed during the week until next year. Varada Sethu is rumoured to portray the Fifteenth Doctor’s (Ncuti Gatwa) companion for most of the Doctor Who series to air in 2025.

A new 8-episode Doctor Who series starring Ncuti Gatwa as the Fifteenth Doctor and Millie Gibson as his companion Ruby Sunday will debut in May 2024.
