Behind the scenes Edit
The islands have served as filming locations for Doctor Who on several occasions, initially for 1984's Planet of Fire, marking the first time Doctor Who was filmed outside Europe; Lanzarote was featured as itself and the islands also were used to depict an alien world. The islands were used again in 2014 for the episode Kill the Moon in which its desert landscape primarily doubled for the lunar surface. Series 9, filmed in 2015, saw no less than five episodes feature scenes shot on location as the islands doubled for a Spanish town, Nevada, New Mexico, and even the alien planets Skaro and Gallifrey: The Magician's Apprentice, The Witch's Familiar, The Zygon Invasion, Heaven Sent and Hell Bent.
