Behind the scenes Edit
Dean Forest Park, or the Forest of Dean as it is more commonly known, has been used as a filming location for multiple Doctor Who episodes.
The ancient woodland of Puzzlewood stood in for the forest aboard the Byzantium in the episodes The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone. Puzzlewood was again used in The Time of the Doctor, as the location where the Eleventh Doctor and Clara Oswald encounter the snow-covered Weeping Angels on the planet Trenzalore.
Clearwell Caves, also located in the park, have appeared as the interior of the Sycorax spaceship in The Christmas Invasion, the eponymous pit in The Satan Pit, the caves of Vesuvius in The Fires of Pompeii and the Maze of the Dead in The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone.
