Filming continued in Llandaff on Wednesday 7th October with further sequences set in the fictional village of Leadworth.
Haffertee once again takes up the story:
"First scene we saw shot was Matt Karen and the guy in the hospital overalls. They seemed to look up at the sky then a dog barks and Matt goes towards the beer garden and starts talking down to something . "Hello prisoner x" is said. Then we hear "Level 20 planet scanning the earth 6 billion people". Then we are told...phone box explodes, aerials turn, fire engine ladder goes up and down. Helicopter flies out of little boys hand. Then Matt said something about not testing all sonics settings. Setting four thousand and do you think they will notice? Then the sonic blew up."
Dramatic shots from Alun Vega of the sonic screwdriver exploding in a flurry of practical effects. Apparently Matt did burn his hand during the effects explosion and this has been picked up by news sites and tabloids today.
