Dr Who filming in Dubai

Cult BBC TV show is being filmed in Dubai<br />

The BBC has released photos that confirm that part of the forthcoming Doctor Who Easter special is being filmed in Dubai.

Planet of the Dead, which stars David Tennant as the Doctor alongside Wonder Woman star Michelle Ryan and comedian Lee Evans, began filming in January in Cardiff and the team are now in the Gulf to film further scenes for the episode.

"We rarely take Doctor Who abroad," said Doctor Who producer Tracie Simpson. "We did visit Rome for Series Four's The Fires of Pompeii - which gave us some spectacular footage.

"The locations in Dubai are a perfect match for writer Russell T Davies's vision of the episode and we expect to film some incredible scenes while we are here."
