David Tennant and the Doctor Who team are descending on the Arabian Gulf to film scenes for the show's Easter special.

Planet Of The Dead, which stars David as the Timelord alongside Michelle Ryan and Lee Evans began filming last month.

The action is moving from Cardiff to Dubai for filming of the show.

Bionic Woman and Merlin star Michelle plays the mysterious Lady Christina de Souza, who joins the Doctor on a bus trip which takes an unexpected detour into danger.

Comedian Lee plays a character named Malcolm, whose life becomes connected to the Doctor's.

Producer Tracie Simpson said: "We rarely take Doctor Who abroad although we did visit Rome for series four's The Fires Of Pompeii, which gave us some spectacular footage.

"The locations in Dubai are a perfect match for writer Russell T Davies's vision of the episode and we expect to film some incredible scenes while we are here."

Planet Of The Dead is the first of four Doctor Who specials which will be broadcast this year. Written by Russell T Davies and Gareth Roberts, the episode will be screened on BBC One this spring.
