News about the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special is coming in at a phenomenal rate, and that’s just the way we like it!

So, today’s snippet (which is nice and unspoilery) concerns the production team filming in and around the Tower of London, and this backstage video, shot on location.

As you will see, it features not only Jenna-Louise Coleman, but also Jemma Redgrave – who is back reprising her role as Kate Stewart, UNIT scientific advisor and daugher of the Brigadier – and Ingrid Oliver in a Fourth Doctor scarf.

And yes, doesn’t London look surprisingly sunny?
