Bad Wolf Bay by alternatecoppa Bad Wolf Bay by alternatecoppa
Another image in a series taken at Southerndown Beach in Cardiff, Wales- The actual shooting location of Bad Wolf Bay for Doctor Who! Not to mention the site of the Byzantium crash for the 11th Doctor's episode "Time of the Angels."

Here we are facing the correct direction the Doctor faces when saying his goodbyes to Rose Tyler. Pictures simply do not do this beach justice! The cliffs there are breathtaking... As is the wind. You can probably tell it was a bit bit windy during out shoot. It took a few shots before my hair looking more "Doc Who" and less "Doc Brown" but my pocket flaps continuously refused to stay put LOL.

I spent an incredible day with Matt Smith look-a-like Matt Elliott :icondeadly-: and stunning Amy Pond Lisa Baxter :iconlisax: shooting at the real filming locations all across Cardiff on my trip to the United Kindgom- All organized by the incredibly talented Steven Ricks, tailor of flawless reproduction Who costumes and maker of my Tennant Suit.

This is easily one of the best pictures I've seen. I saw you at C2E2 and thought you actually were Tennant, you make a fantastic Doctor.

From the thumbnail, I was fooled. From the full size, I was impressed.

Yeah. Looks lovely. Chilly? If not, I'd have been all over that beach.

It was actually super sunny and 80 degrees that day! Which did make the shoot a little troublesome- only because a ton of people were all out on the beach enjoying the beautiful weather. It forced us to crop our photos carefully to make it look deserted. It was so hot though, the wind (while blustery) actually was a blessing as it made it tolerable to be on a hot beach in a full suit without sweating to death!
