On any normal day of the week tourists can expect to see a few pigeons flying around Trafalgar Square in central London.
However, on Tuesday morning there was a very different sight on offer next to Nelson's Column.
Matt Smith, 30, was seen dangling from the bottom of the TARDIS as he filmed scenes for Doctor Who in the famous public space.
Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart) was also on location with UNIT troops. Guest star Ingrid Oliver appears to be playing a UNIT scientist called Osgood who is a fan of the Doctor. She is wearing Tom Baker’s scarf in one of the scenes.
It looks like UNIT are responsible for picking the TARDIS up. Afterwards the Doctor tells Kate: “Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, a word of advice. As I’m sure your father would have told you, I don’t like being picked up!”
Kate then hands over an old brown envelope with the royal seal on. “I’m acting on instructions direct from the throne. Sealed orders from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the First.”
