This chiefly left the remaining scenes in Cloud Incorporated, completed at Roath Lock on October 22nd and 23rd, while various pick-up shots were recorded in studio and on the streets of Cardiff the next day.
On November 9th, further taping was undertaken on the TARDIS set alongside the effects shots of the Doctor driving up the side of the Shard.
The Bells Of Saint John went into production on its own, as Block Eight of the recording schedule.
The director was Colm Mc Carthy, whose prior credits included The Tudors, Spooks and Ripper Street.
But, fortunately, Clara is the same woman the Doctor has already seen die twice... Plans for the new Doctor Who companion, to be featured in the latter part of Season Thirty-Three, evolved considerably over the span of a few months between late 2011 and the start of 2012.
Instead of a Victorian governess called Beryl, the Doctor would now be accompanied by a contemporary girl named Clara who worked as a nanny but yearned to travel.
Her latest victim is a young nanny named Clara Oswald.This depicted the Doctor talking about his search for Clara with a little girl... She was played by Sophie Downham (who would also appear in The Name Of The Doctor).Nicola Sian was Clara's mum, Ellie, having been cast in the same role for The Rings Of Akhaten.The inclusion of the Shard skyscraper near London Bridge as the headquarters of Cloud Incorporated was intended to give the story a highly contemporary feel; the edifice would not be opened to the public until February 1st, 2013.Moffat completed a draft of The Bells Of Saint John around the end of August.
