Over the summer I came across an article at the Mirror about Doctor Who
’s location manager, Iwan Roberts
. I put the link aside and never found the right time to post it — it’s worth a read if you’re a production dork, or if you want to learn about the places in Cardiff they use over and over again — but when I rechecked it again today, I saw something I missed the first time around (or perhaps it wasn’t there).
Smack in the middle of the article — in a sidebar sort of way, not actually related at all to the Roberts’ piece — is an incredible collection of behind-the-scenes photos from the classic series, none of which I had ever seen before. And I’m so familiar with the material that’s generally available that I was astonished to find a trove of “new” old stuff.
Here’s a sampling.
