Trivia / Doctor Who S32 E1 "The Impossible Astronaut"
California Doubling: Averted. American Doctor Who fans rejoiced — this was the first time the series had actually been filmednote with actors; there was a bit of location shooting in "Daleks in Manhattan", but not involving the cast on location in The United States. There was some local "California" doubling, however — some "Utah" scenes were actually filmed across the state lines in Idaho.
Real-Life Relative: Mark Sheppard plays Canton Everett Delaware in 1969. His father William Morgan Sheppard plays old Canton for the scene at Lake Powell in 2011. Originally the latter was also planned to be Mark in old age makeup, but he suggested using his father, who is also a professional actor.
