I'm currently in London and as far as sight-seeing goes for a Doctor Who fan ... well, let's just say a picture of Bad Wolf's flat would be the whovianst thing to send back to my fellow Whovians back at home.

Is the address known? Can somebody extrapolate this? I think there was an episode where you could see some well known buildings out of the apartment's window, but I don't remember which.

I mean we see a lot of spots around her place, there should be something recognisable, right?

Edit: Clarification, just to make sure. I'm NOT talking about the place where Billie Piper lives, but the address of the Rose Tyler's home.

Although the show constantly refers to Rose and family as living in London, the reality is that almost all of the scenes involving Rose's flat (and the Powell Estate in general) were filmed on location in Cardiff according to this website about the filming of Dr Who.

The closest you're going to get in London is the corner of the "Brandon Estate" shown in the "Christmas Invasion" episode.

  • @bitmask - I felt that my answer to this one was pretty convincing. Is there anything else you'd like me to add before considering an acceptance?
