It seems that just about everybody is getting in on the 50th Anniversary celebrations. Today, Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall visited BBC Cymru Wales’ Roath Lock studios in Cardiff to meet members of the cast and crew and get a tour around the TARDIS.
They were greeted by Rhodri Talfan Davies (Director, BBC Cymru Wales), Danny Cohen (Director, BBC Television), Faith Penhale (Head of Drama, BBC Wales & Executive Producer, Doctor Who) and Clare Hudson (Head of BBC Cymru Wales Productions), where they were taken to the Doctor Who production office to meet members of the team, including Executive Producer Brian Minchin and Production Designer Michael Pickwoad.
“It was lovely to welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to the home of Doctor Who to help celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary. Certainly, seeing Prince Charles flying the TARDIS and Their Royal Highnesses chatting to a Dalek are memories to cherish from what looks set to be a very memorable year!”
A video of the royal visit is to be uploaded to the Doctor Who website soon, but in the meantime, here are some photos for you to enjoy:
