Over at Whoflix, we’ve just uploaded our latest Fan Edit, the dodgy CSO-fest that is Dr Who In Some Caves. So what better time to have a look at the bloopers in the story, although in some ways the production itself is the biggest blooper of the lot!
Boom mic Shadow #1
Even though the CSO screen for the story is blue, for some reason they put a green background in some shots instead of the space whirlpool, like this one..
Only to put the space whirlpool in others, like this one!
Looks like amongst all the other gifts the Time Lords gave the Minions was the gift of Blu-tack to help keep their microphones in place…

There’s that green background again! Where has the space whirlpool gone?
Boom mic shadow #2 on Tom’s shoulder…
Boom mic shadow #3 on Tala’s face, but you can track it as it moves across Jackson’s cossie to pick her up for her entrance
Who’s this then? Is he a member of the Minion Crew we never get to meet? Or is he some BBC bod who’s just got himself in shot!
