Filming at The Coal Exchange for A Christmas Carol, 19th-22nd July 2010

The first week of filming in public - or at least witnessed!
19 Jul 2010: Dragonmyst: Michael Gambon arrived to visit the set early on & then left. I didnt see hm come back but then you couldnt really see anything as the tent had been fully erected by then.

Most of the tweets tell the story, snippets overheard etc. There is a picture of a supporting artist who we think is playing 'Eric', however, there's two names being bandied about. I didn't get the snap but here's the link (the original should turn up on here) http://yfrog.com/ndq0rj Anyone recognise him? This is the chap we thought had a dog collar on, but, when we were chatting about it, it could easily have been a victorian collar. Like I said, darn tent kept getting in the way. However, he kept waving through a gap in the tent at us, which only made us more determined to find out who he was & take mor pictures.

2 old wooden racquets and heavy white material where taken in, not netting or a net, someone suggested it could be for a shroud..but we will have to wait and see. What looked like a dark suit was taken in as well, later on.

At one point, Matt Smith appeared long enough to see he was in his brown jacket, red bow tie etc. There were also two lads dressed in jim jams, only realised this after one came back from lunch with MS and then another turned up.

There really wasn't any proper opportunity to take pictures, they drove the cast right up to the entrance, which had the tent over it, so apart from when 'Eric' arrived, no chance. Towards the end of filming someone thinks they spotted Michael Gambon coming out, again, it was a fleeting glance. When they drove Matt Smith off, he stuck his head out of the car window and waved at the small group that had been there. (nice bloke).

Didnt see Karen Gillan or Arthur Darvill at all. They are filming there till Thursday, so someone might get lucky a snap cast in costume. I'll check my photos and post anything that turns out ok in here. For now, I'm going to have a hot drink and some food.
19 Jul 2010: Twitter updates:
08:12:01 alun_vega: "DB" signs point to the Pierhead St base and towards the location (following them now!) http://twitpic.com/26qoy8vega/statuses/18898076986
08:27:12 alun_vega: Crew seem to be setting up inside Coal Exchange. All evidence points to interiors. Doesn't look like filming will start for a while.
08:38:23 alun_vega: Judging by the crew, I'm pretty sure it is DW, by the way!
09:01:06 alun_vega: Photo prospects are very not good. Cast members can be driven up the private drive to the door.
09:42:23 alun_vega: Danny Hargreaves' RealFX van just arrived at the Pierhead St base. They're still setting up (slowly) at the Coal Exchange.
10:12:28 alun.vega (alun_vega): Danny's van just unloaded a big fan at the Coal Exch. Possibly for wind fx. Possibly it's just hot in there.
10:37:33 alun.vega (alun_vega): Gambon seemed not to be in costume - pink shirt and jeans. Possibly just visiting at the moment...
10:52:18 alun.vega (alun_vega): Correction: Michael Gambon is wearing a blue jacket and shirt. He's just left. Surely just a casual visit.
11:36:23 alun.vega (alun_vega): Setting-up is still proceeding very slowly. The crew are erecting a tent in front of the door to block the view.
12:49:24 Angela (dragonmyst): Matt Smith has arrived at CE. Not quick enough for pic although he had a brown jacket on.
14:05:30 alun.vega (alun_vega): Popped by CE again. I saw what looked like a boy actor (13ish) going in, wearing a pair of brown striped pyjamas.
14:07:03 alun.vega (alun_vega): If you're thinking of coming to the Coal Exchange, they now have the entrance very effectively shielded by a black tent and white van!
14:14:55 alun_vega (alun.vega): The only visible trailer door sign at the Pierhead St base says "2". Generic label, or Matt taking his love of Troughton to a new level?!
16:21:31 Angela (dragonmyst): overheard that filming needs to be finished by 9.30pm
16:32:12 Angela (dragonmyst): 2 tennis racquets (old wooden ones) and old fashioned White curtains (it is thought) have been taken inside.
16:47:17 Angela (dragonmyst): Matt Smith & boy in jim jams are back on set.
19:06:22 Angela (dragonmyst): Matt Smith has a red bow tie
19:12:49 Angela (dragonmyst): and there's an actor we can't identify playing a vicar!
19:29:35 Simon Watkins (simon_watkins): At Mt. Stuart Sq. Can anyone identity who's playing the vicar? http://yfrog.com/ndq0rj
21:35:22 Angela (dragonmyst): filming has finished. Matt gave everyone a wave when he left. Nice bloke.
20 Jul 2010: Twitter updates:
09:52:29 Angela (dragonmyst): they've already arrived at the CE.
10:02:22 Angela (dragonmyst): Michael Gambon on set possibly wearing victorian costume.
10:20:53 alun.vega (alun_vega): A man from RealSFX just carried what looked like a greenscreen into the Coal Exchange.
10:23:54 Polly Whitworth (pollyz): At least I can say I've seen a dr who filming for the second time this year... I guess. http://tweetphoto.com/33805863
10:42:43 alun.vega (alun_vega): Danny Hargreaves & company are here in force. http://twitpic.com/26ysaw
10:52:40 alun.vega (alun_vega): The 2 boys in identical pyjamas are back on set. They look very similar, though not twins. Playing siblings? Or maybe one's a double?
11:53:14 Angela (dragonmyst): Oer!! Smoke billows from the CE for a couple of seconds! Danny's handiwork perhaps?!
12:05:34 The Silver Cloak (thesilvercloak): Is this Michael Gambon is his Christmas Special Costume? http://twitpic.com/26zfd0
12:16:22 Angela (dragonmyst): okay, crash mats at the ready!!
15:25:26 Angela (dragonmyst): aha we seen purple and black pjs and a long blackcoat..
15:56:28 Angela (dragonmyst): /via @hellschilde17 they've just come back from lunch, think we spotted Matt Smith going inside
16:08:37 Lauren Higgs (Lauzz1): door to the van has been closed can see inside a bit but nothing happening yet
21 Jul 2010: Twitter updates:
09:04:55 Angela (dragonmyst): filming is continuing at the CE, they've put the tent back up so not much to see atm.
10:41:22 Angela (dragonmyst): it's gone very quiet. Too quiet here at the CE. It's been over an hour since I think I saw MS leave.
10:54:55 Angela (dragonmyst): view this morning http://yfrog.com/ma95bj
11:02:20 The Silver Cloak (thesilvercloak): Its possible that Mount Stuart Square may be closed off for part of the day today. Why this is, we're not sure. Possibly outdoor filming.
13:33:04 Angela (dragonmyst): Danny Hargreaves has just left the CE.
14:59:28 Angela (dragonmyst): little boy in pj's & older guy (MB perhaps) have just turned up at the CE. Lunch break is over.
15:06:58 Angela (dragonmyst): Matt Smith had arrived at CE
16:37:23 Angela (dragonmyst): seems like there's some filming going on in the CE basement.
17:27:32 Angela (dragonmyst): what IS going on in that basement?
19:38:37 Angela (dragonmyst): filming has finished.
19:45:12 Simon Watkins (simon_watkins): Seem to be packing up at The CE #dwsr http://yfrog.com/ht6u3xj http://yfrog.com/jcgh6mj
20:28:56 Angela (dragonmyst): couldn't post these before, signal kept dropping, however, courtesy of @Lauzz1 here's an 'extra'. http://yfrog.com/mzrcrj
22 Jul 2010: Twitter updates:
10:40:20 Angela (dragonmyst): #dwsr at CE, vans are here, but nothing set up. Could be an afternoon start or they're filming elsewhere this morning.
13:21:37 Katherine Jenkins (kjofficial): Back on set for Dr Who... Wish I could text you pics but I'm not allowed :(
13:25:05 alun.vega (alun_vega): Although the base has gone from Pierhead St, there's still crew activity at the Coal Exchange.
13:29:56 alun.vega (alun_vega): I guess the main unit is elsewhere (with KJ) whi
le stuff's being set up at the Coal Exch
13:58:02 alun.vega (alun_vega): Lots of white-van activity at the Coal Exchange. Sadly the Tent Of Doom is also back in front of the entrance.
14:03:46 alun.vega (alun_vega): All activity at the Coal Exchange points to more interiors (unless the Christmas special is called Invasion Of The White Vans :)
14:08:57 Angela (dragonmyst): Matt Smith has just arrived at the CE
14:10:37 alun.vega (alun_vega): Due to their filling the entrance with white vans, they had to drop Matt and pyjama boy off on the street. Great view! #security fail
14:14:39 Angela (dragonmyst): #dwsr Matt Smith has a new jacket, brown stripes, no elbow patches.
14:22:46 Angela (dragonmyst): filming seems to be continuing in the basement ...
17:52:47 Angela (dragonmyst): and filming continues at the CE.
18:16:08 Doug Williams (welshtog): view of the CE still the same :( http://tweetphoto.com/34220781
18:41:33 Angela (dragonmyst): and that's a wrap! Packing up at the CE..
