24 Nov 2004: SFX news item: The Doctor Who production team are out and about filming on the streets of Cardiff again. Our spies contacted us today to tell us that they had blocked off a street in Bute, near Cardiff Bay train station. We don't know which episode they.re shooting, but because of the presence of soldiers in red caps, our guess is that they're filming pick-up shots for the two-parter "Aliens Of London". Our unofficial Cardiff Correspondent, Darren Floyd, brings us this roving report: "Cycled down and saw the back of a man with close cropped hair and a leather jacket and I actually said aloud "Oh my God!" and nearly fell off my bike... but it was some other ****er in a C and A jacket! Saw Rose's boyfriend getting in a car a few times and some soldiers walking back and forth. Some guy came up to me and said 'Must be a bomb!'. He didn't sound bothered at all, and I just giggled and said 'Yeah!'". (originally an online article, but the link no longer works.)
