Let's get things moving with a new location report from the filming of Torchwood: Children Of Earth mini-series. Filming is apparently continuing at a busy pace and is likely to continue through to November.
Location shooting in Penarth last Wednesday featured Gareth David-Lloyd, Eve and Kai. There were some spooky scenes of chanting schoolchildren being recorded. Their sinister chant of ’We are…we are…we are…coming, we are coming’ seems to suggest some sort of possession. Some other shooting of Gareth took place earlier that week outside a restaurant with him pretending to be a waiter and stealing someone’s credit card.

Rumours are circulating that in Children Of Earth:
The Hub is temporarily destroyed in the first episode, a government agent is out to expose Torchwood, Jack may have been fired from Torchwood and Gwen, Ianto and Rhys are stealing laptops and credit cards. Just what on earth is going on? Plus other special guests in the five part story will be Peter Capaldi, as Mr. Frobisher a civil servant with a secret, and Liz May Brice as Johnson, a covert government agent seeking to expose Torchwood.
Filming continued down in Cardiff bay this morning (8th September) with John Barrowman, Gareth and Eve and again featuring sinister, chanting children. A replacement medical officer, Dr Rupesh Pattenchali, possibly taking over from Owen Harper, has also made his first appearance (that's him just above played by Rik Makarem).
Gareth must be one of the best dressed men on telly these days. He looks so smart.
