DOCTOR WHO FILMING 2008 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL


Actor David Morrissey appeared on set alongside David Tennant as the pair filmed the next Doctor Who Christmas special.

Dozens of fans gathered in the grounds of Gloucester Cathedral to catch a glimpse of the stars of the popular BBC sci-fi show.

College Green was covered with artificial snow for a scene filmed on Monday, in which mourners in Victorian costume marched in front of a horse-drawn cart carrying a coffin.

Tennant was dressed in the Doctor's trademark ankle-length brown coat, while Morrissey was in kitted out in full period garb - a tan knee-length jacket and red waistcoat.

It is unclear who is in the coffin — but at one point Tennant stands by with a grim expression and watches the hearse pass him.

A security guard sat in front of the Tardis, which was tucked down a nearby alleyway, covered by a white sheet.

Tennant waved to the crowds as the crew prepared the intricate set and covered the surrounding historic buildings with fake snow.

Secrecy surrounds the Christmas episode's storyline, but it's believed to feature the Cybermen - the Doctor's deadliest enemies.

Gloucester is often used as a film location because of its historic buildings — the Harry Potter films have been shot in the cathedral.

Doctor Who meets Ripley Holden!

I'm glad to see David Morrissey guest star. He's such a good actor!

There are more pictures with this story at the Daily Mail.
