The TARDIS Returns to Portmeirion
The TARDIS has materialised in Portmeirion for the hoilday season. This marks the first time the craft has returned to the village in Gwynedd, North Wales since the 1976Â Tom Baker serial The Masque of Mandragora - where the village doubled for San Martino circa the fifteenth century.
Fans of British TV will also know that Portmeirion appeared as The Village in the cult TV series The Prisoner in 1967-1968.
The Doctor’s faithful vessel will be staying in the region unti the 3rd January.
Portmeirion estates manager Meurig Jones said:
â€œWe hope that Doctor Who fans will come and have a look at the Tardis and take in the sights at Portmeirion.â€
The idea to display the TARDIS came when Jones was contacted by the BBC’s events manager.
“Portmeirion is popular with visitors during the winter months, and we have a Santaâ€™s grotto too. Who knows we may even see some Daleks or Cybermen around as well!â€
For more information; the Portmeirion site contains a detail breakdown of the filming of the Baker classic as well as clips from the episodes.
