So filming has finally begun in what is thought to be David Tennant's final Doctor Who episode the 2009 Christmas Special. I spotted these images on the website for the Penarth local newspaper showing the Tardis and David himself on Victoria Road in Penarth - I even managed to find the location on Google Streetview which I believe is 52 Victoria Road, Penarth - very nice area too. It sort of reminds me of the house in Sylvester McCoy's episode Ghostlight
I know these specials are a bit of a departure from the way Doctor Who has been presented before (usually we wait all year then get a 13 week block) but I sort of like the new format (temporary as it is) the episodes are more like events and they are 15 minutes longer too making each one like a mini movie. I'm really looking forward to the next one "The Waters of Mars", I'm guessing there'll also be a summer and Autumn ones to follow too.
