An article in today's Western Daily Press focuses on the transformation of part of Monmouth into 1869. "A large crowd of set workers descended on the market town of Monmouth to prepare it for the arrival of the star-studded Doctor Who cast," says the article by Janet Hughes. "Old fashioned signs, shop frontages, bales of hay and tons of false snow transformed the square back to Victorian times." The article notes that the scenes are from Mark Gatiss' episode, "where the cult hero meets Charles Dickens." The article notes that the location manager is quoted as saying that the square in which they're filming is "absolutely perfect becasue it is charming and dateless. Nowadays it's so hard to find anywhere without a McDonalds coming into view but this is fantastic."
