It's about a doppelganger called Clifton who says he is William Tell. With this name he uses all kind of methods to make money and harms people. When Tell enters the village and introduces himself he gets in trouble.
This episode is shot on three locations:
1. Domaine des Boissets.
2. untraceable place

I like the huge number of gueststars in Boissets! Some with familiar faces.
While mentioning his name he get's water into his face. There is a 'doppleganger' around with tracks of trouble.
'Clifton' always gets in trouble. The worse thing is he misuses Tell's name. That gives problems.

Imogen Annesly plays Pamenta, a woman who's dowry was stolen by a man claiming to be William Tell. She then expects the real Tell to fulfill the false Tell's promise of marriage.
Look at the beautiful dressed girls on the stairs. In orange dress Georgia Lyman again. She appears in many episodes like he Gods, Trolls, the Emperor, The Rock, The Pit, Doppelgangers etc. Tell in trouble caused by Clifton.

(episode Doppelgangers 52) Unknown place
Help us find the high houses with the orange/red roofs in Lozere
Could be part of the village below.
Who recognize or remembers this farmhouse, little village below? It's somewhere in Lozere probably around the Causse de Sauveterre. Below the photos grouped together by C. Petit.
Both sides of the arcades are different! The gate (is this a village/farm or perhaps part of a castle or domaine in Lozere?)
This wall is to the right of the gate
This place has a recognizable architecture. Like the gate with the window straight agove it. The small stairs beside it and many more.
A lot of photos of this place, so perhaps people do recognize...
The photo below, with the cow, is an example of a farm that looks a little bit like it (in Le Villard Lozere, this is not the farm we are looking for). Also La Ferme Caussenarde d'Autrefois - Musées (picture right below) looks like it but is a little bit different! (right picture).

Doppelgangers 52 location: Chateau Monthialoux
There it lies on the hilltop
Beautiful and very dangerous nowadays! It's not hermetically sealed. It's a real risk to go in. If you look at the most beautiful part of this castle you understand why. The stairs inside is unfortunately really damaged. It's a waste.
1988 left and middle are exact the same places 2015 2015 on top of this hill
1988 recognizable by the grey grit/gravel fields 2015 zoomed out
A hidden rocky (right) corner in front of the ruine. The arcade in top came town. It probablt damaged the stair below it. See more of it down this site.
1989 During Crossbow there was a tree growing inthere (around 1988) In the meantime the roof of the tower is callapsed, that explains the light coloured wall. 2015
1988 You would expect a whole bunch of trees by now...Nice they have kept the landscape open 2015
The place in the ruin, Clifton is incognito Same place! Tell is looking for Clifton Two different locations in one episode.
Clifton tries to fool Tell and Pamenta
I thought this was the place but It coudn't be.. the shape is different. The Crossbowcrew made people believe they ran out of this room (middel picture), We found a room also in Monthialoux that has the same kind of walls and stones (right picture) but it doesn't correspondend on all characteristics. Perhaps Palhers...like the place of the Amazon
1988 Below the place Tell and Clifton ran out to find Pamenta, who is taken away by a soldier. They following her screams 2015
1988 En so they enter Monthialoux exterior stairs 2015
1988 After they met brother Laurence they hear a scream of Pamenta. They ran out of the tunnel and go into the ruine 2015
Monthialoux (internal) stairs
(through the entrance porch you walk right up to the stairs)
Through the years the stairs is really damaged.
1988 low angle shot of the beautiful stairs and ceiling! Some plants on top of the stairs became trees. The wall behind Tell is lightended up by a spot or daylight through the last door.
A photo of Tell below shows the opeing is there. It has all to do with a huge lightbeam from the side, It lightens up the back. My photo is a lot darker.
1988 I think the roof in top of the tower has damaged the stairs. Hard to believe this is really is the same place! 2015.
It's sad, this was really beautiful but so fragile. More photos of the stairs and ceiling below
Beautiful location, But I can conclude It was during Crossbow already a deserted ruined castle with lots of rock blocks all over the place. The staircase was is much better condition than it is now. But It's beautiful to visit this place, times stood still, hundreds of years passing by.....like you're thrown back in time.
Below behind Tell you can still see the ornament attached. The start of an arc.
1988 Tell and stuntdouble Yannek Derrien 2015
This arc of the ceiling, used to be there
Hope this can be repaired one day
1988 The floor of the room at the right of Tell's is already covered with rock blocks like It is now. In between before the roof of the tower came down around 2015
1988 in between this time 2015
Left: below the stairs. 1988 right the door William enters this place.
Below: on this photo you can see (through the door) the arc under the stairs (photo left above)
Perhaps It's hard to imagine but this is really the same entrance in opposite. The stairs is behind Clifton.
I think this is not exact the same.. They make you believe It's here, but this could be in the tunnel below the ruine they running out. Perhaps another Palhers.
Cliften sends Tell and Pamenta to a monk in a ruine. No monk but Clifton incognito.
The unknown place
Finally extra photos of all shots we have.
The buildings behind the arcade
