‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: photos from Cardiff location shooting

Chuck Foster at The Doctor Who News Page offers some photos from a Doctor Who location shoot in Cardiff that is clearly part of the same story that will move to Utah for shooting next month:

The story, being set in 1960s America, seems to require the recreation of a New York street, with the lane decked out with a number of American icons like hydrants and phone booths. A yellow cab was also on location (having also been seen during the day down the Bay), and the Thistle car park and road opposite the lane transformed into 44th Street.

One scene filmed involved a tramp running past the taxi.

Matt, Karen and Alex Kingston had been seen during the day, and a young girl was also present at both locations.

A taste of the photos:

I’ll certainly be interested to see how well Cardiff can stand in for New York City. Not too well, I’m guessing…
