Christmas 2011 Filming Details
Update: The BBC has confirmed that the actress is not Maxine Peake as Wales Online reported. It is thought it may be Outnumbered’s Clare Skinner.
This week, filming commenced on the 2011 Doctor Who Christmas special and info is slowly trickling through.
Wales Online has a small selection of pics featuring Matt Smith and a guest actress dressed in a period costume, which fits with a couple of Steven Moffat’s earlier hints saying that the episode would be partly set on earth and have a period setting.
Doctor Who TV reader TARDISkey123 also caught some of of the action in Llanelli, Wales:
There was a little ginger boy between the ages of 7-9 who was wearing normal clothing, but about 20 minutes later he came back out wearing light brown pyjamas with red stripes and a tweed dressing gown.
Apparently Karen Gillan went to Stradey Castle to film and the little boy followed about an hour later. They’re also filming in our local park, Parc Howard which also has a mansion.
