Well, David and Bernard were on set this morning at Nant Fawr Road and Nant Fawr Crescent in Cyncoed, Cardiff, the location for the Noble house. The TARDIS prop has been put together and is sitting opposite the house where filming is taking place. Catherine Tate and Jacqueline King have also now joined the other actors so it looks like we've got a complete reunion with the Nobles for the two part finale. Scenes of the Doctor running to the TARDIS and throwing stones up at a window in the house have been completed. Bernard is sporting his fetching Christmas antlers as seen in Turn Left.

A scene has also just been filmed showing the Doctor and Wilf running into the TARDIS with Sylvia shouting at Wilf, 'Come out of there!' Priceless. The Doctor was also spotted carrying a certain book with him.

According to reporter The_Drivad "I swear that one of the first times they rehearsed the scene, Sylvia shouted 'Bring him back! Whoever you are, bring my dad back!' which would point to it being pre-Journey's End but after that it was definitely 'Doctor, bring him back.' I thought the book was The Journey Of Impossible Things and the guy behind me (who's house it was I believe) seemed to agree (I overheard him discussing it with someone.)
* We've since found out it is not 'that' book.

After shouting at the TARDIS, Sylvia kept turning around and looking towards the house. I thought nothing of it but as I was leaving I noticed a boom mic over the door of the house. Was Donna in the doorway?"

In fact, Catherine then filmed a further scene, chasing after Jacqueline King, Tennant and Cribbins, shouting to the Doctor to not take her grandfather away. Filming continues tomorrow and Wednesday. Thanks to everyone on the Doctor Who Forum and Twitter for the updates and reportage.


From Dorkslayer on the Doctor Who Forum, who had a superb vantage point from a friend's house, I believe, is this report and some of his amazing photos.

"There were a few scenes where BC accuses the Doctor of being a chicken!! It seems the Doctor was afraid of something or someone. Wilf is on a military radio talking to UNIT as though he was on an operation.

Another scene was of Wilf sitting dejected on his doorstep. The Doctor throws a stone at him, and he comes over. Wilf says "You cannot park that (the TARDIS) there, Donna will see it. The Doctor says something like " I lost him." Then asks Wilf if he has seen anything unusual, something to do with his life. Wilf replies that Donna had a bit of a funny turn when she saw the Book.

Bit more dialogue and they both get in the TARDIS. The Doctor did not want Wilf to go but Wilf says "I am not staying here with her", indicating towards Sylvia, He then gets in the TARDIS. Sylvia shouts "Bring my father back" and the TARDIS disappears. Donna then appears from the house and says " Are you shouting at thin air again Mother?"

The Book is called 'Fighting the Future' and is by Joshua Naismith. DT is carrying it from the house into the TARDIS.

Finally, last scene shot in the rain, DT and BC outside the TARDIS. The Doctor says to Wilf just before leaving, something like "This is not the end, we will meet again." Wilf asks him where he is going. Now I really could not hear DT too well as he is very softly spoken but I am pretty sure as he is getting into the TARDIS that he said, "I am off to have my revenge". However I think I was mistaken as I was in the window and he had his back to me. Then the Doctor leaves in the TARDIS.
