Director: Joe Ahearne Executive producers: Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner, Mal Young Broadcast: 4 June 2005

Few episodes of Doctor Who change tone so frequently, or indeed so successfully, as Boom Town. While much of this can be attributed to Russell T Davies’ skill as a writer, it’s also due to the episode’s assured sense of place.

Cardiff (and especially Cardiff Bay) features to a degree unseen since the focus given to Paris in City of Death (1979). It’s notable that both stories announce the locations’ importance in their titles, while Murray Gold’s romantic, waltz-like melody in Boom Town recalls Dudley Simpson’s Parisian theme from the earlier serial.

About Doctor Who Magazine

In its early days, Doctor Who was recorded on cumbersome cameras tethered to claustrophobic and often inadequate studios. The show rarely escaped these confines in the 1960s, but as technology improved, producers and directors became more adventurous. Location shooting has helped to create some of the most memorable episodes in the series’ long history. In this unique publication, new features, exclusive interviews and rare images tell the story of those episodes and the people who made them happen.
