Doctor Who Magazine have released an unmissable 100 page special of their publication – Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition: On Location.
As any Doctor Who fan will know, the TARDIS crew can travel anywhere in time and space. This obviously affords the writers endless potential in their stories – but also tasks the shows location crews with bringing countless worlds and time periods to life. Furthermore, after 50 years on television, the method of location scouting has no doubt developed with technology. Consequently, there is a lot of interesting history for Doctor Who Magazine to chart.
Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition: On Location, features exclusive interviews with the acclaimed crew of Doctor Who. Interviews include….
Designer Spencer Chapman (The Dalek Invasion of Earth)
Production manager Margot Hayhoe (Fury From the Deep, Castrovalva)
Location Manager Nicky James (Night Terrors, The Bells of Saint John)
Location Manager Iwan Roberts (A Good Man Goes to War, The Day of the Doctor)
Producer Marcus Wilson (A Town Called Mercy, The Angels Take Manhattan)
Due to this impressive list of Doctor Who episodes and credentials, there is a host of insight into Doctor Who’s location management. 2011’s A Town Called Mercy featured a full Wild Western town and saloon that will no doubt be fascinating to learn about. Additionally, 2013’s 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor showed footage of London and even The Time War itself. Many of the episodes listed are staple entries of Doctor Who, with fascinating locations to learn about.
There are even more fun activities to read about in the special too! The Masque of Mandragora will be studied by Andrew Pixley, revisiting the Portmeirion location shoot. Moreover, Doctor Who Magazine alum Alan Barnes has met some fans of location hunting and shares his findings. Matthew Kilburn is even exploring Doctor Who’s most celebrated quarries! Fans will also get a map charting the British Isles that have succumbed to alien invasions. Shoot guides for episodes City of Death and Arc of Infinity are also available. To top all of that off is a behind the scenes sneak peak at 2011’s The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People. Shot inside 13th century Caerphilly Castle in South Wales, fans will not just learn about location use in Doctor Who, but the real history behind them.
Speaking of the exciting publication, Doctor Who Magazine editor Marcus Hearn teased: “How important is location shooting to Doctor Who? And what do the programme’s locations tells us about the series? These are some of the questions we’ve tried to answer in this new Special Edition. This is the first time Doctor Who Magazine has dedicated a whole issue to location shooting. There’s a lot to write about, and some fantastic pictures that have never seen print before.”

The Doctor Who TV movie will finally make its HD debut on Blu-ray later this year.
‘The TV Movie’ will be released on Blu-ray on Monday 19 September by BBC Worldwide and is available to pre-order on Amazon now.
Extras have not yet been announced, but Amazon has listed the release as having 2 discs.
Doctor Who spin-off Class could feature an appearance from the scariest monsters in the Whoniverse – either that, or the actors have just been messing about in the props department…
Fady Elsayed, who plays one of the pupils in the Young Adult series about Coal Hill School, posted a snap of himself with none other than a Weeping Angel.. The Angels are very popular and would be good to see them in the spin off.
Filming of the new series of Doctor Who moves to Spain.
The BBC released a photograph of stars Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie, in which Londoner Mackie’s character is seen taking a selfie of herself and the Doctor, for copyright I have put picture of it here
The corporation said the two stars have travelled to Valencia. This is to film the second episode of the new series of Doctor Who at the City of Arts and Science Museum, more information soon.
Fear the tenacity of John Barrowman. The former Doctor Who and current Arrow star has already managed to resurrect Doctor Who spin-offTorchwood as a series of audio dramas and comic books, but now he’d clearly decided that isn’t enough – because he’s trying to get it back on TV too.
John said “I have a phone conversation on Monday to see how we can get it back on television,” Barrowman told the official San Diego Comic-con stream this weekend, adding that he thought they had a decent chance of making it happen.
“The fans know me well enough – I’m only going to say it if I mean it and believe it,” he said.
However, Barrowman has stressed that if fans did want to see more Torchwood (last seen in 2011 miniseries Miracle Day) then they would have to show their support by buying the official tie-in comic he and his sister Carole have made, comparing it to a Kickstarter campaign that would help see the series stand alongside new spin-off Class at some point in the future.
“If you really believe in Torchwood, get the comic,” he said.
“Get this series going, it’s like a Kickstarter. If you buy the comic, you’ll show your support … we need Captain Jack back on the screens.”
Watch out then, Class – you may not be the only Doctor Who spin-off for much longer. If John Barrowman has anything to say about it, anyway…
The latest edition of Doctor Who Magazine is on general release on Thursday, and this issue looks ahead to what we can expect in the next series of Doctor Who, currently under production.
Speaking on his feelings about working on his last series for the show, Steven Moffat says:
When I agreed to do one more run, I thought, ‘Sod it, I’m not doing the march to the scaffold. I want it to feel like a brand new show. I want it to feel like Episode 1 of a new series. I want to leave like it’s all just beginning.
Speaking about the casting of Pearl Mackie, casting director Andy Pryor says:
Pearl has this sort of boldness, and an ability to tap into the humour of the part without making it an overtly comic performance. From the word go, she made the part her own. She found things in the part that none of us had envisaged, and she made Bill a rounded person.
