Series 7: Episode 1 & 5 Filming Spoilers
As filming continues on both episodes one and five of Doctor Who Series 7, the set reports are coming in thick and fast.
Beware, more spoilers ahead…
First up, some more episode 1 details. In yesterday’s bus scene with Rory, the driver was holding a mini-Dalek eyestalk, pictured below. Some sort of Dalek spying device?
The episode will also apparently be part-set in Ancient China (possibly the snowy scenes in the Series 7 trailer). The Doctor is given a task to complete by the Emperor!
Now for some episode 5 details. Late night filming involved scenes with Arthur Darvill and a character called Rob.
Timeboy described the scenes:
[The] “Winter Quay” [building] from Wednesday’s filming is actually a hotel, and the interiors were filmed here. Rory was in a cellar, and gets zapped by something (presumably an Angel) and appears in New York in the past. Arthur had to jump off a small box and look confused and shaken up. Then he looks up, at the Statue of Liberty. He was told to gaze at it as if there was something not quite right about it. He couldn’t think what.
Next, they filmed “Rob” getting out of a car. It was very odd. They only filmed his shoulders and head, and there was actually no car at all. He had to mime it by squatting and then standing up. He makes a comment about the Statue of Liberty too, and also looks confused, and walks on.
So it appears speculation about the Statue of Liberty being a Weeping Angel may have be right all along…
Big thanks to Ryan/Timeboy for pics and details.
