WHO GOES THERE
Readers might like to check out the new (August 2016) Summer Special Edition of 'Doctor Who Magazine', entitled 'On Location', which takes a look at outside broadcast filming over the years for the ever-popular science fiction series.
The magazine is of interest as it includes a superb 4-page colour feature (left) on 'The Masque of Mandragora', a Tom Baker story which was partly filmed in Portmeirion in 1976, where it doubled for ancient Italy. Written by historian Andrew Pixley, the piece comes highly recommended by TUW to all 'Prisoner', Portmeirion, and 'Doctor Who' fans, and includes several photos from both series and interviews with cast and crew.
Sadly, the piece/magazine appears to have neglected to mention 'The Five Doctors' story being partly filmed at Clough Williams-Ellis's nearby home at Plas Brondanw (photos HERE), but perhaps another 'On Location' special is planned for the future?
