Filming locationsEdit

Like in most of the series, locations meant to portray the original story's London and southern England countryside setting actually utilised the north of England for both exterior and interior filming, albeit on carefully chosen sites. One exception in the case of this specific episode was the use of the heritage Bluebell Railway, located in East Sussex in the south of England. [1] [2] [3]
