Fans see stars film Dr Who special

Actor David Morrissey has appeared on set alongside David Tennant as the pair filmed the next Doctor Who Christmas special.

Dozens of fans gathered in the grounds of Gloucester Cathedral to catch a glimpse of the stars of the popular BBC sci-fi show.

College Green was covered with artificial snow for the scene in which mourners in Victorian costume marched in front of a horse-drawn cart carrying a coffin.

Tennant was dressed in the Doctor's trademark ankle-length brown coat, while Morrissey was in kitted out in full period garb - a tan knee-length jacket and red waistcoat.

A security guard sat in front of the Tardis, which was tucked down a nearby alleyway, covered by a white sheet.

Tennant waved to the crowds as the crew prepared the intricate set and covered the surrounding historic buildings with fake snow.

Secrecy surrounds the Christmas episode's storyline, but it's believed to feature the Cybermen - the Doctor's deadliest enemies.
