January 2005 Filming a Success

Friday 14th January 2005

Being superstitious, Ashley has dated this news item for tomorrow!. And superstition played a part in the build up to this latest filming session - i.e. tempting fate - and so we didn't want to show too much of the sets and stuff before we had got footage in the can. We've managed to get within a hairsbreadth now of finishing all live action filming - there's a couple of minutes worth to do perhaps in February (or later this year when it's warmer as the final piece may well be shot outside!!)

Here's a few pics to show you a bit of what we filmed this last weekend...

 

The Doctor and the Covellitor with the ammunition box in Auriga's Tardis ...
Ashley working on the console ensuring the Eiffel Tower (yes, the Eiffel Tower) is in the right position on the console...
The Doctor receives a call on the communicator whilst in the power room...
The console from a great height (but still within the set's full height !!!)...
crew members Nicola and Tim assist with Ringo and Mike getting into position. That's Ringo and Mike inside the daleks - don't worry we haven't started naming the daleks in the script (as per the cybermen in Tenth Planet)
And finally here's Chaldar, Covellitor and Aturo from the rescue party trapped in the Resonance Chamber during a time ripple. Looks painful! In the story it causes them to age - as Timelords we are not sure how old their current bodies are already - however their physical appearance alters once they leave the chamber. This particular plot point has been rather convenient due to the number of years we have been filming (one or 2 weekends a year on average) and the tendency of our actors to age..!!!.

More images soon ..... (we've 20 tapes to look through before we can contemplate a rough edit...)
