The Good, The Bad, and The Doctor! Matt, Karen, and Arthur film Western-style Doctor Who episode on Spanish film set

Matt Smith and Karen Gillan are used to getting stuck in any number of sticky situations as their on-screen aliases, The Doctor and Amy Pond in the BBC’s Doctor Who.

And this time, their adventures are taking the actors rather further afield than usual.

Amy and Matt have been spotted filming in the southern Spanish town of Almeria on its famous desert lots.

The desert landscape of Tabernas also provided the backdrop for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

An insider told The Sun: ‘Matt and Karen are really excited about the episode.’

'Filming on the same set as a lot of western films, together with the Spanish weather, will give it an epic feel.'

Almeria is also sunnier than Cardiff, where Doctor Who is usually shot.
