9 Jan 2010: Filming at Caerphilly Castle for The Vampires of Venice

Rob M Clarke: On a cold and dry Saturday morning in January 2010, the BBC crew descended on a frozen Caerphilly Castle to film episode 6 the Vampires of Venice. n the great hall a scene was being filmed where a number of female vampires (like those shown in the series 5 trail above) who were amushing the Doctor, Amy, Rory and someone named Isobella. Amy was dressed in her pink bath robe again but this time Rory was in period costume. The vampires were crowding round a doorway and hissing a lot, though only one was showing her teeth. The Doctor behind the door and was shouting "Isobella, Isobella.. No... No!". Elsewhere in the Castle grounds, there were lots of corridors that had been dressed and lit for filming. So expect "lots of running"!

We did only see the one scene being filmed and just a couple of takes at that, as the kids needed feeding. Oh and did I mention, it was bloody cold.
