After the traditional break for Christmas, filming on the next series of Doctor Who resumed this week. Yesterday saw the production team return to the very public location of Roald Dahl Plass - a venue last seen being blown up in Torchwood: Children of Earth!

Not to be put off by the snow that's hit the country this week, both Matt Smith and Karen Gillan were present for filming, alongside the TARDIS and guest star Tony Curran. See the spoiler section for more details on what occured!

The scenes as filmed, show the Doctor and Amy arriving at the Museum, presumbly the interior of which is the National Museum. Then a sequence was filmed where the TARDIS lands again but Van Gogh is with them. The Doctor says to him: "Welcome home - Paris, 2010." Then they all walk to the building.

It was a lovely little sequence, Matt looked fantastic - he was pretending to slip and slide in all the snow. And Amy. Poor Karen, she must have been frozen.

Not surprisingly, the media were quick to pick up on such public filming - for a run-down of articles see our Doctor Who in the Media article.
