Doctor Who to shoot in Vancouver

tardis-van-not true


British film and TV blog CultBox reports that star Peter Capaldi told several fans on a U.K. set this week that a second block of filming for the show’s 10th season will take place in Vancouver in October.

The crew is currently working on the third and fourth episodes of Season 10 at locations in Cardiff, Wales.

“If true, this won’t be the first time Doctor Who has shot (in Vancouver),” said CultBox. “Paul McGann made his debut as the Eighth Doctor 20 years ago in ‘The TV Movie,’ which was filmed entirely in Vancouver in 1996.” (CultBox also notes that movie will be available on Blu-ray for the first time next month.)

The city, of course, has become a sci-fi mainstay, with shows such as Supernatural, Arrow and The X-Files having been shot in Vancouver over the years.

There’s a longtime Doctor Who connection with Vancouver, too: Rachel Talalay, who has directed several episodes of the show, is a film professor at the University of B.C.

Talalay has also worked on Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow in Vancouver, reports CultBox, and has been linked to the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. Could she also have a hand in the October shoot?
