The Doctor is in ... Garachico

The Doctor Who crew are filming in Tenerife this week, and an interesting tweet from on-location work looks to reveal an alien from the opening Series 9 two-parter, but just where is filming taking place on the island? Several of the reports have mentioned filming in the Teide National Park (it's a tad obvious), but where are the urban shots taken, shown at the bottom of this report?

Well, I can reveal that it's the nothern town of Garachico, which I know like the proverbial back of my hand, so recognising the architecture was as easy as indentifying an El Aderno desert! :-)

In the first of those three images, the "men in black" are located on the steps of the former convent and Town Hall (we wonder if there is any significance in this latter?).

The distinctive pillars on the front of the building in the second image gave it away (for me) as the Casa Palacio of the Counts of La Gomera, also known as the Casa de la Piedra (Stone House).

Whist the outdoor cafe scene in the third image is taking place in the plaza Glorieta San Francisco in front of the church of Nuestra Señora de Los Angeles (founded 1524). 

You can see more clearly in the original report and images (along with short videos) in this report from DrWhoTV, Series 9 Filming in Spain.

There, you heard it first here and now you can totally amaze your friends with your in-depth knowledge of the location when you watch Dr Who (Series 9) in the Autumn.
