More info to come when the episode has aired in 2018
Confirmed location is “The Kimberley Hotel”
If you have ever watched Doctor who and thought a you had seen that abbey before, it must have been Neath abbey. It was used in numerous episodes, “Beast Below”, “Vincent”, “Rebel Flesh”, “Almost People” and “Power of three”.
Why build a whole village, while there is one around anyways? That’s what the designers for Doctor Who, The Robots of Sherwood must have thought. The tourist medieval village of Cosmeston was used as Sherwood.
Stradey Castle is a very popular location for weddings and photoshoots, no wonder the Doctor Who production team used this location for “The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardwrobe”
The National Museum of Wales is a popular location for the Doctor Who team for filming. It has been used for such episodes as “Dalek” (2004) , “Planet of the Dead” (2009), “Vincent and the Doctor” (2009), “The Big Bang” (2010) and “The Lazarus Experiment”. This means that so far the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor have been here…. waiting for you Peter….
Sarah Jane Smith has also been here for “Mona Lisa’s Revenge”, where the Mona Lisa comes to life and turns people into paintings and vice-versa. Mona Lisa is played by Suranne Jones, who also plays Idris -the Tardis- in Doctor Who.
Look at the bottom two pictures. The ‘squid’ can be seen in a shot and the entrance (door on the left) can be seen in Torchwood. The statue with the Medusa head on top of the stairs is visible in many episodes of Doctor Who (and Sarah Jane and Torchwood).
The Tenth Doctor (and his clone) return to Bad Wolf Bay in various episodes of “Doctor Who”. In the series the location of this beach is in Norway, but it was filmed only 20 miles to the west of Cardiff.
The Tenth Docter uses Dunraven Bay in “Army of Ghosts”, “Doomsday” (2006) and “Journeys End” (2008).
But even the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, has been here in “The Time of Angels” and “Flesh and Stone” in 2009.
The building used for Agatha Christie’s house in the Doctor Who episode “The Unicorn and the Wasp” is Llansannor Court. Another nice movie fact is that the father of David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor) has a very small cameo appearance in this episode. Also, Felicity Jones stars in this episode. Much later she will play a much larger part, Jyn Erso in “Rogue One”. An episode to watch, for sure.
When the ATMOS device is about to take over the world, the BBC is filming at Margam Country Park, where the lovely countryhouse is used as the Rattigan Academy.
