It looks things are getting going for the much-anticipated 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, with an iconic building from the previous Doctor Whos and the wider world at large.

That’s right, the Radio Times reports that production this week moved to the Tower Of London on the banks of the River Thames in order to get the next stage of filming under way. Aficionados will recall that the building has fictionally previously served as an HQ for Earth defence force UNIT. Apparently Jenna-Louise Coleman, Jemma Redgrave - who plays UNIT's head of scientific research - and the newest cast member Ingrid Oliver were all filming yesterday (April 9, 2013). Oliver is also known for performing with Lorna Watson as comedy double act Watson & Oliver. In addition to the stars on location this week, Matt Smith will remain as the current Doctor for the 50th anniversary special, with former Doctor and assistant David Tennant and Billie Piper respectively set to make an appearance too on this special show.

The show is being shot in 3D with the episode airing in November, with Matt Smith reckoning it was going to be incredible. Speaking to the Mirror last month he said “It will be undoubtedly the biggest and the best. And it will be one of the most exciting years for the show.”
