Doctor Who – Fields House

Image

Maybe the most scary location of all “Doctor Who” episodes is the one where we first meet the Weeping Angels. A “haunted house” like location where Sally is introduced to the Timelord and statues that come to life. At the time of filming (and some time after that), the house was creepy and very usefull for the production of this episode.

After 2010 however, the house was sold and renovated. Not much is left of the creepy building seen in “Blink” (the “Doctor Who” episode). But the crew returned to film the Christmas special “The Snowmen” here. Less scary, still snowmen comming to life is no picknick….

It seemed they could do better, as they did in 2016, when they returned yet again to film “Knock, Knock” (S10, E04), aired in may 2017. The building ate young students who rented the rooms… creaky floorboards… flickering lights… yes, this house is still very scary…..

And the fun part, you too can stay here, check out this link to airbnb….

X-Files – Piru – California

Image

Only one of the few movies and tv-shows filmed at Newhall Mansion, Piru, California is the X-Files. Mulder and Scully visit a haunted mansion. For the exteriors, Newhall Mansion was used (interiors are not filmed on location). The place is known to be … haunted…..

Newhall has been, and is, a popular site for film/tv production. “Murder, she wrote”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “The Icredible Hulk” and “Charmed” are just a few other productions which used this location.

Doctor Who – New York

Image

Used in a great many amount of films and tv-shows, Manhattan is a popular location for production crews around the globe. BBC is no exception. For the Doctor Who episodes “Daleks in Manhattan”, “Evolution of the Daleks” and  “The Angels take Manhattan”, only pick up shots were filmed in the big Apple. The main action was in fact not filmed here at all…
