Another image in a series taken at Southerndown Beach in Cardiff, Wales- The actual shooting location of Bad Wolf Bay for Doctor Who! Not to mention the site of the Byzantium crash for the 11th Doctor's episode "Time of the Angels."
If there's one cosplayer I've been super excited to meet from the first image of him I stumbled upon online, it's Matt Smith look-a-like Matt Elliott
He really does have the look & stance of the Eleventh Doctor down. A "talent" we both laughed about since we each agreed that happening to resemble someone else dosen't exactly qualify as an effort requiring skill. The real talent lies in having fun with it and bringing that fun to others- Something Matt does do with extreme grace and a pleasant humility. I was very pleased to get to know him, find out what a great guy he is AND get some incredible "meeting of the Doctors" photos!
I spent a whole incredible day with Matt and stunning Amy Pond Lisa Baxter
shooting at the real filming locations all across Cardiff on my trip to the United Kindgom- All organized by the incredibly talented Steven Ricks, tailor of flawless reproduction Who costumes and maker of my Tennant Suit.
