More location filming, witnessed by Doctor Who Forum's 'Hells Childe 17'. Thanks for your pictures.
This took place in Cyncoed, Cardiff and was again for Part Three of Torchwood: Children Of Earth. No sign of the Torchwood SUV but at least it confirms that John Barrowman is in the series. And he's driving a nifty Porsche. Rumour has it that Captain Jack has been thrown out of Torchwood.
A BBC press release has now been issued BBC Press Office and confirms the following:
"The highly-motivated Torchwood team are John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones.
Other regular cast involved in their high-octane adventure are Kai Owen as Rhys Williams, Gwen's husband, and Tom Price as PC Andy.
Special guests in the five part series are Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, The Thick Of It, Skins), who plays the role of Mr Frobisher – a civil servant who is hiding a terrible secret; Paul Copley (Coronation Street, The Bill) as Clem – the survivor still haunted by his past; and Liz May Brice (Bad Girls, The Bill) as Johnson – the cynical covert government agent determined to expose Torchwood."
Location shooting commenced on 20th August for the 5 part Torchwood mini-series Children Of Earth. Eve Myles was joined by Kai Owen, reprising their roles as Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams...or should that be Gwen Williams after their rather strange marriage ceremony in the last series?
All scenes were located around and in Mount Stuart Square and the Coal Exchange building in Cardiff city centre. Most of the scenes centred on Gwen outside a Police station. Later, she was joined by well known character actor Paul Copley (This Life, The Lakes, Queer As Folk and much more) and they filmed a scene of them both pointing into the sky in awe at...something! Rhys later featured in a scene where he attempts to steal a laptop whilst Gwen distracted the owner.
The five part story is scheduled for transmission across one entire week in Spring 2009 on BBC1.
Thanks to Brian Damage, Brigade Leader and Spaceygal on The Doctor Who Forum for their tireless location reporting and the pictures.
