Doctor Who – Cardiff – Bute Street

Image


Not the first time since the reboot of Doctor Who 2005 (and Torchwood) that the BBC crew used Bute Street as a filming location. After visiting South Africa with the new 11th doctor lady, they are back in Wales in this familiar street. In fall 2018 we will see what has been filmed here…

In the North-West point of Ireland, subterranean caves can be found. Although they are not accessible to the public, the crew for ‘The Last Jedi’ were allowed to use the location for filming.

Around Malin Head, multiple locations were used, a walking tour is available.

Marvel has found a “secret location” in the heart of New York. We have seen this in Rami’s version of Spiderman and it has also been used in Netflix’s Daredevil and later The Defenders. The Rooftop garden at the Rockefeller Center is a popular location for meetings between villains like Gao and Kingpin…. but it can also be used for weddings…

Life on Mars – Manchester

Image

For the BBC SciFi drama “Life on Mars” (named after the David Bowie song), the main location for filming is Manchester in the UK. Sam Tyler (John Simm) gets into an accident and finds himself waking up in the Police Force of the 1970’s under supervision from DCI Gene Hunt (Glenister). The story is set in Greater Manchester and some of the locations used are the Victoria Baths in Longsight. They are used several times throughout the show. First as the swimmingpool, later as old waterworks, a warehouse and the morgue of season two.

Sam first sees himself in 1973 in West Egerton Street. Rochdale Road and an alley near Princess Street are also used in season one. The police station is located at the end of Lacy Street (see the detailed map for exact locations) near the A6, it is Stopford House.

In season 1, St Thomas Hospital was used as the morgue (a real morgue).

Also used: WiIlliams Street (“Watch my car or I’ll stomp on your toys!”). Tiger Lounge near Cooper street is where the Casino is in season 2. Near Bond street is where Sam gets hit by a car in 2006.

Ashes to Ashes – London

Image

After the succesful series “Life on Mars”, this sequel to the show is set in London in the 1980’s. DI Alex Drake arrives from 2008 (or is this just some coma-induced dream???) and runs around the city with the politically incorrect DCI Gene Hunt and his red Audi Quatro.

While it is for BBC Wales, it is in fact recorded in East London. The Police Station is an old Stock Exchange building and can be found at 4-6 Christopher Street (Islington).

Now don’t go looking for Luigi’s Trattoria & Alex’s flat. The trattoria used is now a fish restaurant, but right across the street from the “Police Station” at 9 Christopher Street.

In the very first episode where Alex gets shot (seriously, no spoiler), this is near the Founders Arms (52 Hopton Street) on the South Bank of the Thames.

The Reform Club – London

This Victorian establishment, founded in 1836,  has been used in many films. Interior and exterior can be seen in “Sherlock Holmes” (2009) (as Cafe Royal), but also  “The Avengers (1998)”, “1408” (2007), “Die Another Day” (2002), “The Invisible Woman” (2013), “Quantum of Solace” (2008), “The Bounty” (1984).
