One of the many benefits of merging our family life with Southark's over the past 8 years has been the 'heads up' B husband would receive about forthcoming filming of Doctor Who. As fans will recall, when the series was revived in 1995, the Brandon Estate in Southwark was chosen as the location for filming of Rose Tyler's (Billie Piper) fictional home, the Powell Estate.
Not many people realise but Southwark Council has a small but thriving film location unit, which has become increasingly busy.
Below a picture of the B children outside the actual Tardis during set-up for the final episode of David Tennant's period as the Doctor, screened over Christmas and New Year just gone. For the record, it was a freezing cold Friday in February and the fake snow kept disappearing because of the actual sleet falling continuously. Whilst we were cold but agog, the local population had clearly seen it all before.
