The Sun newspaper has caught a few teasing shots of Matt Smith filming scenes in Wales for the new series of Doctor Who and since the actor was wearing a plastic bonnet to keep the rain off his head, they opted for the ingenious strap line of “Who looks a bit silly in that Matt?”.
Whilst we take a second for the laughter to subside, the paper did get some fun shots from the set, including the Doctor atop the TARDIS exterior, lifting the lid off the lamp and trying to make a phone call at the same time, quite who he’s calling we have no idea of but it’ll be fun to find out!
Smith was also seen recording a meeting with a mysterious hooded figure that looked a tiny bit like Gideon Vandeleur, one of the former envoys of the Silence from The Wedding of River Song. It could have also be a headless monk without the CGI or it could be a brand new character altogether.
The Sun also got a wonderful publicity image of the Eleventh Doctor and his new friend, played by Jenna Louise-Coleman with Matt Smith sporting not only a waistcoat but a stylish new tweed jacket in a much darker colour, perfect for the Doctor to witness the fall of the Eleventh and visit the Fields of Trenzalore!
As the rest of Series 7 starts to take shape, you may see more and more images that contain spoilers appear in newspapers and the internet, if you don’t want to know anything about what’s to come, you’re probably well advised to avoid tabloid papers altogether!
