It's taking ages for the photos from the set to upload so I figured I'd just put down what I saw now instead of after. I'm putting it in here incase it's a bit spoilery.

When I got there they were doing a run through of Jenna running out of the flats and towards Matt. Lots of people were commenting on how young she looked, but I'm not sure if they meant generally or had been made to look young. Her hair was different though. she had bangs and it was wavy and curly rather than straight. Sort of like the hair she had in Rings in the scene at her mums grave. I'd guess that this is going to be where she lives in the story. While they are going through this scene, someone is over putting some Christmas presents around the TARDIS.

After doing that, the presents are cleared away and Matt and Jenna went into the TARDIS. The camera people were about 10-15 metres away and they were doing some sort of long shot. Jenna walks out, sort of in a bouncy strut, and Matt follows a few feet behind, sonicing the air as he goes. The stop at the cameramen and talk to each other, but I couldn't make out what. Jenna smiles a big smile and throws her arms around him. Once the hug is over they walk off camera towards her flat, as though she is leading him in. They do this about ten times and then break for lunch.

During this time I got speaking to a guy (I won't say his name in case he told me stuff he shouldn't have) who was like some sort of security guard. He was saying that they expected to be there until dark and they were trying to film all the scenes for the flat today, so the stuff I was seeing would be dotted around the episode. He said that tomorrow they were going to brecon to film for the day. They will be using an army base up there to get some shots and using the 'open space', which I'm assuming means the miles of moors there. He then said, the best part, that he 'can't wait until they start shooting the Cybermen stuff', which confirms that they will be the big bad of the episode, and most likely will cause the Doctor to regenerate. I wanted to push for more but didn't want to overdo it and he already seemed a bit like he had said too much. I did ask though if they were in this episode and he said they were. Pretty soon after that he got called to help them go move stuff.

The cameras and stuff were all moved around during this time. The TARDIS stayed in the same place but it now had tracks leading up to it and beyond and another set of tracks were set up going along the field, but away from the action. A woman dressed in 80's gear came walking along the field and then stood in one of the tents reading through a script, which managed to get blown around the field. Honestly, the speed with which the production people moved to get those pages was something else! I'd have loved to have gotten a peak. She didn't seem to do anything else while I was there so I'm not certain what her role is.

When they got back to filming, they did a retake of the earlier scene but with the cameras set up differently. This time they rolled alongside the TARDIS, catching them coming out of it and getting long shots of them hugging, so this time from about 10 meters away instead of right in front of the camera. This time when they walked off they had to go further and closer to the buildings.

After that, they brought out a fake TARDIS front. It could open like the TARDIS, but was essentially just the frame. They propped this up with wood and then kept pushing it, but I don't know why. I didn't seem them using it until I was leaving, when they set up a black tent behind it. Maybe it's to get easier in/out scenes, or something?

Matt and Jenna then disappeared and when they came back Jenna was carrying a huge turkey. It was like half the size of her. They walked over towards the flats to begin the scene there and walk towards the ship. The turkey was raw and covered in cling film, but Jenna was wearing gloves to hold it. It was on a tray, too. They repeated a scene of her bounding along carrying it and smiling towards the TARDIS. Matt was sat on the grass, but I couldn't tell if he was in shot, or just sitting down and shouting his lines off camera. He was saying 'You can't keep using the TARDIS like this', but Jenna kept smiling and walking.

It was at this point that I left. That was like 2 and half hours worth. I'm going to go back down in a bit and see what else is happening, but that's all I've got for now.

God I'm so excited now!! I love when we start getting updates and spoilers through. Plus it's amazing to have a man on the ground, feeding us the info as it happens.

I think it's fitting to have the Cybermen cause the regen, assuming they do. They caused the first one and so 50 years later to have them causing the latest is a nice tie in I think.

I hadn't thought of that.  They also caused the fake "regeneration" into Jackson Lake.

I've never seen her in anything and I hadn't actually heard of her, but I looked her up and she seems to have done a lot.

I've seen her in a few things. She's good.

I actually popped in to say we have a title - The Time of the Doctor.

We also have a pic & a synopsis:



Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars - and amongst them, the Doctor.

Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

Judging from the trailer, I assume the planet's Trenzalore.  Looks good.

Looks great.  At first glance, I thought that looked like a Raston Robot in the background, but looking closer I think it's a rather indistinct Silence.  I suppose they would be there, if this is the showdown on Trenzalore.

Looks like Orla Brady might have something to do with Colonel Runaway's army  Cool

The Doctor's cloak looks cool.  I love a cloak.

It's logical, seeing that this episode is connected with Trenzalore, and the army was trying to prevent the Question being asked there.  It seemed to be asked and circumvented in TNOTD, but maybe that was a red herring.

Interesting.  I wonder who it was Clara was talking to when she said "Help him change the future."
