Doctor Who To Film In Australia?

If things go the way that Australian MP George Christensen hopes, we could see the TARDIS materialise outside the Sydney Opera House in 2015.

The MP recently put forward the motion to entice Moffat and company to head to Australia to film the series in the year of the 50th anniversary of the Australian debut of the programme.

The motion made many mentions of Australia’s strong links over the years to the show, ranging from the likes of Janet Fielding and Kylie Minogue through to the shows genesis with Australians such as C.E. “Bunny” Webber, Anthony Coburn, Ron Grainer and Dudley Simpson who were all so instrumental in the show’s birth.

As there have been contributions from Australian film funds in the past (notably for the shows 20th anniversary) and its rich history of filming abroad (from America and Canada to Amsterdam, Spain and France) there is no reason to not have the production move for a year.

What do you think; should they take the show on the road, as it were? Would the idea of a series filmed in Oz appeal or repel you? Is it location filming for its own sake much as was the case for The Two Doctors or would it lend itself to stories in the same way that Paris did for City of Death and Spain did for A Town called Mercy. Leave your words below for us to inspect.
