New set pictures from Doctor Who series 7
It was only confirmed yesterday, but already the first on-set pictures of Dame Diana Rigg and daughter Rachael Stirling filming their Doctor Who series 7 episode have arrived online...
Warning: this story contains potential spoilers.
No sooner had we heard the news of Diana Rigg and daughter Rachael Stirling's forthcoming appearance in the new series of Doctor Who than photographic evidence appears. Filming for the Mark Gatiss-scripted episode is currently taking place in Rhymney, Wales, and below are the first on-set shots of Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Rigg, Catrin Stewart and sometime Downton Abbey actor Brendan Patricks at work.
It looks as if a Victorian-set episode (assuming the plastic granny bonnets are there to keep the rain off between takes and aren't an era-blending fashion item from a Victoriana-loving alien race), a Dame, a pocket watch, and a bowler hat are all in store for series 7, then. That all makes the rumour that this is the episode to feature the return of Madame Vastra seem quite plausible, doesn't it?
