Matt, Karen and Arthur in Central Park
Okay, so I’ve seen a lot of celebrities and tapings, but almost none have excited me as much as watching Doctor Who film in Central Park. Matt Smith is the most dapper man I’ve ever seen, and Karen is beautiful! They would wave occasionally, and at one point even began taking pictures of us.
The crowds were absolutely crazy, but Matt, Karen, and Arthur all seemed so chill and would occasionally make jokes about how they wished they were shooting something more exciting (I’m not quite sure what Matt and Karen were doing, but Arthur was just walking around).
All in all, they seemed absolutely lovely and I’m so excited I got a chance to see them!
Big news is rolling out on the upcoming season of Doctor Who: shooting will commence on February 20, BBC’s Doctor Who website has announced. The first director will be Saul Metzstein (Upstairs Downstairs), with executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat joining new EP Caroline Skinner and producer Marcus Wilson on the production team.
The show will also be getting some new digs: the new series will be produced at the BBC Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff, set to officially open in March.
Writers for the new season have been confirmed. Toby Whithouse — the brains behind the original UK Being Human and the well-received Who episodes “School Reunion,” “The Vampires of Venice,” and “The God Complex” — will contribute once again. Meanwhile, Torchwood writer Chris Chibnall will also join this year’s writing team. He has previously written the episodes “42″ and the two parter “The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood.”
