TARDIS on Caerphilly Castle!

The Eccleston/Tennant TARDIS has been spotted on the top of Caerphilly Castle! The blue box has arrived at the Castle as part of Caerphilly's Medieval festival. Doctor Who has been filmed at the Castle earlier this year for this year's two-part Christmas Special, The End of Time. Photo from Ahremsee. Press release below;

"Time-travelling TARDIS goes back to Wales’ medieval age

A very unusual visitor is expected amongst the medieval stones of Caerphilly Castle over the Christmas period! It’s travelled through time and space and now Doctor Who’s TARDIS has landed at Wales’ largest moated medieval castle!

The blue police box which is located on top of the Inner Gatehouse tower will be lit up during the night and will remain at the castle until the New Year. The Castle was used to film some of the scenes in the final two episodes of this BBC Cymru Wales production. The episodes will be broadcast on BBC One Wales on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day titled Doctor Who - The End of Time, Part One & Two.

Caerphilly Castle, which is cared for by Cadw, the Welsh Assembly Government’s historic environment service, and town centre will be hosting Caerphilly’s Medieval Christmas Fayre on Saturday 12 (9am-5pm) and Sunday 13 (10am-4pm) December celebrating a good old-fashioned Christmas in style.

John Wallis, Cadw’s Site Operations Manager said, “We’re all very excited about the arrival of the TARDIS at Caerphilly Castle. The Doctor Who crew came to film recently and the Castle plays a part in the last couple of episodes.

“I’m delighted that the TARDIS is in place in time for our Caerphilly’s Medieval Christmas fayre this weekend. As well as enjoying a variety of events and activities here at the Castle, visitors can now also witness this world-famous blue box at the Inner East Gatehouse tower.”
