Doctor Down Under in 2012?

Doctor Who has filmed outside the UK for both Series 5 and 6. Now it’s rumoured the show could be heading to Australia for multiple episodes next year.

According to ‘Australia’s leading TV blog’ TV Tonight:

TV Tonight is hearing whispers from the UK that the long-running science-fiction series is considering a move to film multiple episodes in Australia in mid-2012.

They add:

There’s still much that needs to be sorted before an Aussie sojourn becomes a reality, but it’s certainly a tempting idea.

Next year the show will screen in the UK’s autumn season, but filming in mid-2012 would likely be for episodes in 2013.

Whether this rumour has any substance remains to be seen. It would hardly be a cheap thing to do, so it seems unlikely the cost saving BBC could afford such a move.
