As we previously reported, the production team for the new Doctor Who series will be on location this coming week in Swansea for several days filming parts of the adventure that takes place in 1869, before moving on to Monmouth for more location work (as we noted a few days ago). "From Monday the "old section" of Swansea's Maritime Quarter will be used to film a 19th-century scene featuring actor Simon Callow as Charles Dickens," says an article on icWales. "Artificial snow will be sprayed onto Adelaide Street and Gloucester Place, around Swansea's five-star Morgan's Hotel. And horses and carriageways will be brought in to add atmosphere to what is intended as a Christmas scene." (Thanks to Steve Tribe, Paul Engelberg, Gil Williams, Howard A. Treesong)
