Porth Teigr gets the Royal treatment!

Two special guests were welcomed to Porth Teigr this week.  TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall made a visit to BBC Roath Lock studios at Porth Teigr as part of their week-long annual visit to Wales.

During the visit, the royal couple met Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat and BBC Wales director Rhodri Talfan Davies, along with current Doctor Who stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman.

Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall were given a tour of the Doctor Who set at BBC Roath Lock, including the TARDIS, and were shown a display of some of the monster stars of the show.

And after trying his hand at the famous Dalek catchphrase "exterminate", series writer Steven Moffat commented that the Prince was "great"!

The sci-fi series, which is filmed at BBC Roath Lock, Porth Teigr, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.  More information, photographs and video clips of the visit are available here
