* Even Classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' had at least one of these, "Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath". The plan was to mock up Monte Carlo, but the producer in charge of making best use of budgeting, John Nathan-Turner, calculated they could shoot in UsefulNotes/{{Paris}} for real with a skeleton crew for almost the same cost. As a result, what was to have been a 1920s casino-themed parlor drama became a contemporary Paris romp, with long stretches of Tom Baker and Lalla Ward goofing around on Parisian streets and [[EiffelTowerEffect atop the Eiffel Tower]] before meeting the resident [[CityOfAdventure maniac alien]]. (Weirdly, they also filmed in-studio scenes back in London featuring the most contrived Parisian stereotypes imaginable--stripey shirts, berets and neckerchiefs, haughty artists, etc.) They even had special guest stars: JohnCleese and Eleanor Bron as art critics at the Louvre.
