More Doctor Who filming has been spotted on location in Barry.
And it looks as though the Weeping Angels are back in greater numbers.
Jodie Whittaker was reportedly on set last night for a creepy night-time shoot at an old, decrepit looking house at Whitmore Bay, Barry Island.
Friar’s Point House (formerly the Marine Hotel) will be the rather spooky backdrop for the upcoming Weeping Angels episode of Doctor Who.
A prominent ship’s mast in the grounds of the estate gives us a good clue about what’s inside.
The original interior decor is said to have resembled the inside of a ship. But it’s unclear how much of the original finish remains.
Either way, the Weeping Angels seem interested in getting inside.
After all, three of the terrifying statues were stalking the main entrance to the building.
The now-iconic Doctor Who creatures were recently spotted clambering out of the sea during another location shoot earlier this month.
The Weeping Angels – known by some as the Lonely Assassins – debuted on Doctor Who back in 2007. This was during David Tennant’s critically acclaimed episode, Blink.
The statue-like monsters were an instant hit, terrifying viewers of the classic sci-fi show.
Now, the Angels’ assault on Barry Island continues.
The shoot, which began after dark on 26 January, primarily consisted of interior shots.
During the course of filming, we heard several crashes from inside the house. And that could mean that Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor gets a bit physical with the Angels.
However, several locals also report that the TARDIS was set up behind the building, in the back garden of the property.
It’s clear that the Weeping Angels will return in Doctor Who Season 13.
But we also saw them recently, during the Doctor Who Christmas Special.
Revolution of the Daleks aired on New Years Day 2021. The episode saw Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor imprisoned in special facility on a distant asteroid. And s alongside some of the Doctor’s greatest enemies.
Her saviour? Captain Jack Harkness.
But before they can break out, the Doctor encounters one of the statuesque Angels.
During one scene, the Doctor trudges out into a holding pen. There she finds ‘Angela’ – a Weeping Angel being contained in the pen across from her.
But they’re not exactly cellmates, revealed as the Angel crashes against the electrified fence.
Now, it looks as though the Weeping Angels will be back in full force.
But will the Doctor encounter Angela once again?
John Barrowman is currently in Cardiff as Doctor Who filming continues. So, I can’t help thinking we could see him back on set. And that could mean the appearance of the Angels is connected to his daring jailbreak.
Either way, it looks as though this Weeping Angels episode will have a rather nautical theme.
Doctor Who Season 13 will air sometime in 2021.
