Doctor Who – Gileston Farm

Image

For the second episode of season 10 “Doctor Who”, the crew went to film in Valencia, Spain. The wheatfield which is next to the futuristic building (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias), is in fact close to Cardiff and is next to Gileston Farm. These two European location form Gilese 581d, the first human colony, where you better smile to stay alive…

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Los Angeles

Image


In the very first episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”, a bar called “Ruthie’s Skillet” can be seen (Skye makes her first appearance here). A real bar was used for filming, but if it is “Ruthie’s Skillet” you are looking for, you are out of luck. The production team dressed “Spring Street Smoke House BBQ“, a bar in North-West LA to look like the bar they needed. Still, it is a location you can actualy visit. Later in season 1 (episode 20) the bar was visited again.

X-Files – Long Beach – California

Image

Another “haunted” location, like Newhall Mansion, for the stars of the X-files, was “The Queen Mary“. This ship was used when Mulder and Scully went to the Bermuda trangle.

These days, the ship is a hotel in Long Beach, the crew stayed in this hotel while shooting the episode. Some of the crew members experienced creepy experiences while staying overnight on the ship….

Doctor Who – Lanzarote and Tenerife

Image

The volcanic Island of Lanzarote can be a different planet with a little movie magic. This is what the production team for “Doctor Who” must have thought when looking for a location for “Kill the Moon”. Lanzarote was used as the moon….

The nearby Island Tenerife doubled as the wasteland of Skaro in “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar”.

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…

The Truman Show – Florida

Image

In 1998 a location was needed for the movie “The Truman Show” with Jim Carrey and Ed Harris. In the movie, the town is calles “Seahaven”, the location used is in Florida and is called “Seaside”.

The house that was used for Truman is clearly labeled these days.

Throughout the movie, the spike of Coleman Pavilion can be seen. It is now a public beach access.

In Ruskin Place, you can find the Rubeo Architects sign. This is not a real buisiness, but a sign that was left by the film crew.

The Post Office has been moved, 10 feet further south. Although the structure is still the same as it was back then.
