A Woman Will Play The Next Doctor Who!

A Woman Will Play The Next Doctor Who!
Emily Stoner

With the announcement of Jodie Whittaker becoming the 13th person to play Doctor Who, we look at Brighton’s history on the programme.

1969 – The War Games episode was the last to be filmed in black and white and took place at Sheepcote Valley, Wilson Avenue Brighton.

1980 – The Leisure Hive episodes were filmed on Brighton Beach and set in Brighton as The Doctor and Romana, The Doctor’s companion, were enjoying a holiday in Edwardian Brighton.

1986 – The Trial of a Time Lord, Mindwarp episode was filmed along the Telscombe Cliffs in Peacehaven.

Since then there has been a Doctor Who exhibition in 2005 which ran for six months and hosted a variety of props, costumes and monsters that appeared in the show.

Who knows maybe with Jodie as the new Doctor we will see a return of the series here in Brighton!
