Doctor Who is set to return to a familiar filming location tomorrow and the following day as shooting on Series 12 continues.
Gloucester Cathedral will be closed on 23rd May, cancelling the Lunchtime Eucharist and Choral Evensong as no visitors will have access. Filming is expected to take place on 22nd May too, albeit in the city’s College Green. We don’t know who will be on location, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for sightings of Jodie Whittaker (the Thirteenth Doctor), Bradley Walsh (Graham O’Brien), Mandip Gill (Yasmin Khan), and Tosin Cole (Ryan Sinclair).
Hopefully, we’ll learn who the director is too; this is expected to be part of Block 3 of Series 12. Still, don’t be surprised if you try to get a glimpse of the cast, but don’t see any of them – filming is expected to be limited to inside the structure.
Doctor Who filmed at the Cathedral for the 2008 Christmas special, The Next Doctor, starring David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor.
The holy site has previously been used on shows such as Game of Thrones, Father Brown, and the upcoming Starz production, The Spanish Princess.
