Outpost Gallifrey has learned that the new series production is now back in Cardiff, having taken a trip to London early in the month to do some location photography, and then (we presume) into the studio. There are signs that the production will be filming in public areas of Cardiff this coming week; we have a set report from Jez Connolly who was in Cardiff today (click on the spoiler tag for more details).
I spotted Christopher and Billie preparing for filiming in St. David's Hall in central Cardiff at around 3pm today. Christopher was wearing a burgundy coloured long sleeved T-shirt, black trousers and what looked like ankle length black boots with some silver detail. Billie was dressed in the burgundy and grey hooded top previously seen. I saw Christopher reading the script sat on a bench a few yards from the outside of the building. He looked deep in thought most of the time; it's a great testament to the people of Cardiff that even though it was a fairly busy street and filming was occurring nobody was interfering or pestering the production team. I sat at a nearby outside cafe for a while to observe proceedings; the filming was clearly going on inside the building as it had been closed to the public. Round the side of the building I saw 3 or 4 vans carrying lighting equipment. Most exciting of all though was one van containing the top section of the TARDIS. The crew looked pretty relaxed; at one point Christopher appeared out of a people-carrier car and gave the driver a broad grin.
