doctor who on location

Metropolitan Police Box (1948) - blue in colour. Used to direct calls to the police station before the mobile/cell phone. Made famous by the long-running, iconic, British TV series, Doctor Who (the “TARDIS”). Unlike an ordinary callbox, its telephone was located behind a hinged door so it could be used from the outside, and the interior of the box was, in effect, a miniature police station for use by police officers to read and fill in reports, take meal breaks and even temporarily hold prisoners until the arrival of transport.


Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel - Behind the Scenes (Part Seven)

David’s memories of the episode, from Doctor Who Magazine #375:

“Very cold nights on location.  It snowed.  They Cybermen were fairly overwhelming. And the Tyler family all together - a nice place to be. I’d never met Shaun Dingwall (Pete Tyler) before, but he quickly became part of the clan. He’s a lovely guy.”

From the DVD commentary with Noel Clarke (Mickey Smith), Camille Coduri (Jackie Tyler), and Shaun Dingwall (Pete Tyler)

Camille: Do you think he does make it up as he goes along?

Noel: Partly, yeah.  And I think the good thing that David brings to the Doctor is that old eccentricity where he kinda is winging it, winging it. […]

Camille:  Oh I love David’s choices as an actor.  He’s so commanding, isn’t he? You believe that this CyberLeader would…

Noel: Would listen

Camille: Absolutely

Noel: It’s really clever how the Doctor can sort of figure things out without letting you know that he’s figured them out.

One thing I really respect about Jon Pertwee was how much he hated bullies, and how protective he was of his friends. In an interview in one of the DW magazines, he speaks of hating bullies ever since childhood because of the messed up British school system which allowed and even encouraged that kind of behaviour, and he talks about it a lot throughout the interview.

There’s this:

“I felt quite protective of Roger. There is a scene in The Sea Devils where they needed to shoot Roger floating in water to get an establishing shot. Now, Roger was terrified of water. It took a lot of persuading by me to get him to do it and a lot of Katy talking gently to calm him down enough to actually get in the water. Just as we had done that, the idiot assistant director shouted out: ‘Come on Roger, for God’s sake, you’ve wasted enough time already!’

“I was furious. I said to the AD, ‘Can’t you see how much it takes for him to do this? You shouting like that just ruins his confidence. Why don’t you stop being such an arse and jump in the sea yourself?!’ I never could stand anyone bullying people.” — Jon Pertwee, DWM 457.

And this, from an article about the filming of Terror of the Autons:

“The short-sighted Manning sprained her right ankle when she ran into a rock on the rough terrain, and started to worry that she might have to be replaced. When production assistant Nicholas Howard John—the brother of Caroline John—joked about this, he received a stern reprimand from Pertwee about upsetting his new co-star.” — DWM 311.

And Jon used to hold Katy’s hand whenever they were running because of her short-sightedness, and he would wrap his cape around her to keep her warm when they were filming on location.

Day 41: Favorite Location

↳ Gallifrey

It was beautiful. They used to call it the Shining World of the Seven Systems. And on the Continent of Wild Endeavour, in the Mountains of Solace and Solitude, there stood the Citadel of the Time Lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe, looking down on the galaxies below. Sworn never to interfere, only to watch.“
