Yes, that's right - the 50th will feature the return of Totter's Lane - a junkyard where the TARDIS resided in the very first story, An Unearthly Child. And if that's not enough to get you excited - the crew were also seen filming a re-creation of the iconic opening scene of An Unearthly Child, where a policeman (this time in modern police uniform) was seen walking past the Totter's Lane sign. You can watch a video of the scene below:



The crew were also shooting at Coal Hill Secondary School, where original companions Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright taught and the Doctor's granddaughter Susan attended - have a close look at who the chairman of the governors is:
