EP 3. CREW DIARY: A SWASHBUCKLING CONFIDENTIAL ADVENTURE
Confidential packed its bags and headed off down the M5. Destination: St. Austell, Cornwall. Mission: to cover the Doctor Who crew filming on the deck of a 112 foot square rigger ship.
Matt, Karen and Arthur received an amazing reception in the sleepy harbour town as many people (it seemed like the whole town!) turned up to watch the night shoot’s proceedings! As the whole of Charlestown harbour was filled with smoke to create the eerie atmosphere for the episode, filming began and Karen swung into action with her sword swiping fight routine. She spent hours perfecting this and by the end… became quite attached to the sword!
Space was tight on the boat but Confidential managed to squeeze onboard and get some sneaky footage of the stunts and filming, thankfully without falling overboard! However on the last day we did all manage to get soaked by the special effects crew as they created a torrential storm on an otherwise beautifully calm evening. Wind machines blew and a fire truck pumped water, spurting the rain into the air soaking crew and actors alike.
Back at the studios the team was joined by supermodel Lily Cole who had some effects of her own to film, completing the ensemble cast for this episode including Hugh Bonneville and Lee Ross.
