Doctor Who: new photos from Caerphilly Castle filming

Wales Online has shared some lovely new photos of filming at Caerphilly Castle today. Sadly, there are lots of photos of a man in a green costume, but he isn't Tom.

Luckily for us, more kind fans on Twitter have shared photos of Tom on set.

 

 

Da Vinci's Demons: new promo still for 205 'The Sun and the Moon'

Thanks to Wendy for spotting a stunning new promo photo of Tom as Leonardo with Carolina Guerra as Ima, shared by TV.com. The image promotes Da Vinci's Demons season 2 episode 5 'The Sun and The Moon', which will be broadcast on Starz this coming Saturday.

Da Vinci's Demons will finally arrive in the New World this week, which means a couple new characters are about to make an entrance. Perhaps the most exciting (and stunning) new face is the one that belongs to Ima, a high priestess in the Inca empire. The Incas initially want to kill our boy Leonardo, until Ima—who's basically the HBIC of the Inca Empire, and who apparently has a very special connection to Leo—realizes that her own search for the Book of Leaves might benefit from having him around.
