Doctor Who at Christmas

At Christmas we will have Doctor Who and he will be in Victorian London. Here is the prequel.

I’ve always thought that a spin off series based on Madam Vastra (she’s the Silurian (lizard person)) would be very interesting. A period drama with sic-fi overtones, almost steampunk. Certainly not something you see much of on television now.

Here is the trailer for the Christmas episode.

Not sure about the monsters…

“the cafe on tv at weston super mare is it real”

Noticed in the blog stats one of the search terms used that resulted in someone finding my blog was

the cafe on tv at weston super mare is it real

I suspect my recent blog post on the filming of The Café was the reason Google directed them to my blog.

There is no real Cyril’s, it’s a fabrication, just a set, but they do film in Weston-super-Mare.

The Café

The café building itself is just a set, it’s not a real café dressed at Cyril’s but a set built for filming and when done, it’s broken down and taken away until the next season (if one is commissioned) is filmed.

This evening they were filming down on Weston-super-Mare seafront for the Sky series, The Café.

This is a comedy that is shown on Sky.

Filming in Weston-super-Mare

Funny, touching and a little bit romantic, too, The Café is a brilliant new comedy from director Craig Cash, and co-writers and stars Ralf Little and Michelle Terry. The Café is a sweet sitcom based in Cyril’s in Weston-super-mare. Run by three generations of women, gran Mary, divorcee Carol and daughter Sarah (played by Michelle Terry who co-wrote The Café with Ralf Little), Cyril’s sees all sorts on the seaside front, from gobby hairdressers to living statue Kieran. Meanwhile Sarah meets up with old sweetheart, Richard (Ralf) who has hopes of re-kindling their romance.

Of course there is no real Cyril’s, it’s a fabrication, just a set, but they do film in Weston-super-Mare.

Weston-super-Mare

Apart from the awful rain coming down, which I guess they weren’t expecting, if they planned to film in July, what they did have was a high tide…

The sea

You could actually see the sea in Weston-super-Mare (aka by the sea).

Grand Pier at Weston-super-Mare

Normally, because of the extremely high tidal range, you rarely see the sea all the way up the beach. The pier is usually never “in” the water and all you can see is sand and mud.
