Doctor Who: The Vampires of Venice - Tonight!

A reminder that the sixth episode of Doctor Who: Series 5, The Vampires of Venice, is transmitted on BBC One and BBC HD at 6.00pm tonight!

Dessicated corpses, terror in the canal and a visit to the sinister House of Calvierri – the Doctor takes Amy and Rory for a romantic mini-break, as the Tardis touches down once again.

But 17th-century Venice is not as it should be. The city has been sealed to protect it from the Plague, although Rosanna Calvierri may have other plans...

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Amy by Karen Gillan, Rory by Arthur Darvill and Rosanna Calvierri by Helen McCrory.

Doctor Who Confidential: Death in Venice follows at 7.00pm on BBC Three.

The cast and crew get a trip abroad. But not to Venice, because as episode writer Toby Whithouse explains, modern day Venice doesn't really look like 16th century Venice anymore. Instead the episode is shot in Trogir, a small medieval town in Croatia that is the spitting image of 16th century Venice.

However, Matt Smith and Toby Whithouse do take a trip to Venice and meet up with Francesco Da Mosto, who takes them on his boat and gives them a unique tour to illustrate how the world's most beautiful city works as a back drop to Toby's fiction.

Narrated by Alex Price and featuring interviews with Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Francesco Da Mosto.

Doctor Who: The Vampires of Venice - tonight, 6.00pm on BBC One and BBC HD.
Doctor Who Confidential: Death in Venice - tonight, 7.00pm on BBC Three.
