Doctor Who to visit Stonehenge

A TIME Lord will be descending on Stonehenge this weekend as an iconic figure leaves the stars behind to explore the ancient stones.

Salisbury’s best known landmark will take a starring role in one of the country’s most-loved television shows on Saturday as the BBC’s Doctor Who visits Wiltshire.

The stone circle will join other great British landmarks including Tower Bridge, the Millennium Stadium, Shakespeare’s Globe and the Palace of Westminster in featuring in the series, which has caught the imagination of viewers ever since William Hartnell first took on the mantle of the man from Gallifrey in the black and white days of 1963.

Stonehenge site director Peter Carson said: “Stonehenge continues to be one of the country's most recognised historic monuments. We’re delighted to be a part of one of Britain’s best-loved and most iconic TV series, and think it’s a great way to introduce Stonehenge to new audiences.”
