Today they were filming the Christmas special at Fields House in Newport (where they filmed Blink). Spotted on set were Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra) who we revealed was returning yesterday.
However today Tom Ward was spotted (who was revealed by the BBC on the 6th August), but also the return of Catrin Stewart (Jenny) and Dan Starkey (Strax) once again in a butler uniform (as seen in episode 11 filming here). Also spotted was Liz White playing a maid, you may have seen her in Life on Mars or recently in the film The Woman in Black.
Based on all of the filming on all episodes and what we have seen, Victorian times seems to be a major influence in the second half of the season (7b). This is where I am going to throw out some pure speculation based on filming and spoilers: What if something happens to the TARDIS or the angels send the doctor back in time in episode 5 and he is stuck in Victorian times.
What do you think with the return of all these characters confirmed for at least 2 episodes? Discuss below.
