There was much excitement in Clifton, the area of Bristol we live in, when a production company turned up to film legendary BBC TV show Doctor Who.
Clifton was playing the part of Notting Hill for the new series of the programme which sees the first appearance of the new doctor, played by Ncuti Gatwa.
We sadly didn’t spot Ncuti but watched scenes featuring Millie Gibson, who plays Doctor Who’s new companion Ruby Sunday, and former Eastenders actress Anita Dobson as Mrs Flood, a neighbour of Ruby’s.
We were also VERY excited to see the TARDIS!
