Any crew - filming locations

Post by Canadanne » Sun May 25, 2014 9:24 pm

Question for any crew member who might know the answer - where did they film the lake from Series 5 & 6, the ship from Series 6, and the town from Series 7, and where did they find the stained glass window used in Series 2 & 3?

I'm fairly sure the stained glass window was entirely hand-drawn by David Rowe.

If David Rowe has no memory of the window it seems unlikely he drew it - especially given the fact he's recently been digging out his works in progress etc. Unless a specialist artist would have been called in? Seems harder than just using a photo...

I don't know if anyone's had a look around but if it's a real window then somewhere in Norwich seems the most likely - if I worked on the show and Tim said 'I need a stained glass window' I'd just pop to the nearest church. I noticed when I was there for the convention that there's an area just down the road from the studios called Tombland with at least a couple of churches - seems an appropriate source for a dungeon window!

In our brief walk in the city my wife did comment on the relatively high number of churches we passed so even if we knew it was definitely in Norwich it would still be a needle in haystack job (especially as the dungeon window is possibly a detail from a much larger real life window with many more images).

So, thinking logically, what are the nearest churches to the studio or the production office (if elsewhere)? Otherwise we are reliant on someone just remembering...

David Rowe told a fan he didn't draw the stained glass window (and confirmed to me that he doesn't know where it was taken from), so I am guessing it was a photograph as it looks pretty realistic.

I too thought the Norfolk or Suffolk area was a likely source, but I've had no luck in all my Googling of local churches, etc.

It is also possible that they scanned it from a book or something. I would just love to know, one way or the other!

That window is a tough one, I had a good google to try and find it the other day too, couldn't find anything like it.
Maybe it's from a drawing in a book and not from an actual church as you say, could be hard to find!
