Doctor Who Number 12: Peter Capaldi

Doctor Who Series 8 Filming Continues In Cardiff

The cast and crew of Doctor Who were out and about in Cardiff yesterday, filming at one of Cardiff University’s newest and most prestigious academic buildings.

The Haydn Ellis Building, named for the late deputy vice chancellor of the university, has also been used as a location for Who executive producer Steven Mofffat’s other popular show, Sherlock.

The Sherlock production made use of the lab facilities as well as being transformed into a Central London hospital.

While filming, Peter Capaldi, the man set to take over as the Twelfth Doctor, stopped and posed with fans on set.

Note the dark shirt Capaldi is seen wearing, a slight deviation from the promotional image that was released of his Twelfth Doctor’s costume.

Twitter user @ryanfarr caught a few more snaps of Capaldi and Jenna Coleman filming and interacting with fans in the Cardiff University area as well as a shot of a monster! Expand the spoiler button below if you want to check it out.

Rebecca is still new to the Who world, but is no stranger to sci-fi, being a life long Trekkie. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she watches so many movies and reads so many books she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
