Shooting on the Doctor Who 50th anniversary biopic resumed this morning in Central London. Writer Mark Gatiss (pictured below) accompanied the makers of An Adventure in Space and Time on Westminster Bridge to reconstruct some of the most iconic scenes in the series’ history. The location filming for The Dalek Invasion of Earth (1964) was represented by four replica Daleks and a Sixties BBC film crew.
Meanwhile, further details on the programme’s cast and crew have emerged online this week. Joining actors David Bradley, Brian Cox, Jessica Raine, and Sacha Dhawan are newcomer Claudia Grant as Carole Ann Ford, Jemma Powell as Jacqueline Hill, Sarah Winter as Delia Derbyshire, Jamie Glover as William Russell, and Russell himself has a cameo role as Harry. The latest issue of Radio Times has reported that Lesley Manville (pictured with Bradley on Wimbledon Common) plays William Hartnell’s wife, Heather. The IMDB website now has a tentative listing for the BBC2 production, and also cites child actor Reece Pockney as Alan.
The crew now includes Terry McDonough (director), Philip Kloss (film editor), Suzanne Cave (costume designer), John Pardue (director of photography), Dave Arrowsmith (production designer), Lucienne Suren (art director), and assistant Oliver Benson.
