Catching up with the new Doctor Who season (and even liking it, much to my own surprise) I found a very familiar place in the second episode! Back in 2011, John Barrowman, his sister Carole and their husbands had made a France / Spain road trip, and they also had visited City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia. I already loved the place then, and do now even more after seeing so much of it in this episode. This is the kind of modern architecture I love. Not the simple plain cube one without anything special.

Please find many more pictures under the cut. Anything that hasn't John or Carole in it, is a screenshot.

Ooh, I wondered where that location was! Didn't expect it to be so far away from Wales.

It's weird to see this place crowded :) I knew they were on location for that episode, but I thought they CGI-ed some of it, you know, made it bigger or more futuristic. No need, the place's enormous! And beautiful - I actually like it more now when I know it's a 100% real place. Wow, suddenly one has a need for a trip to Spain ;)

Great memory. I had forgotten about the trip the four of them made. Thanks for the pictures. :-)

That's lovely modern architecture and the weather there probably helps it with being so open and airy. I am sure Sting based a video on something like that if it had been built in the early 90s.

Yes, the weather, blue sky and I also love the color, with it being so white. Makes it look very futuristic.

I probably would have hated to draw it though LOL I am doing a machine foundation at the moment and it has many nooks and edges which makes it very difficult and I have to pay lots of attention. So, when seeing buildings like this, I immediately start to look for "how did they do it". Comes with the business I guess!

I had stopped watching Dr. Who because I got angry with some of the plots (and I wasn't a fan of Clara's) but I started watching this year again and like it much better.

I came close to stopping myself. I dutyfully watched but it was all so boring and I couldn't tell you anything as I have forgotten about it. I also did not like the Capaldi Doctor at all, being so mean and angry all the time.

I was zero excited for the new season and only watched out of curiosity as everyone said it was better.

Something certainly has changed and it is actually fun again to watch. Wish it had been like this two years ago. What a waste!

Clara was really odd. I hadn't been a fan of Amy either, but compared to Clara she was decent. I did not like Clara pushing the Doctor around all the time with her "Shut up shut up". It's his show! He felt like a sidekick.
