ACTOR Ncuti Gatwi has arrived at a Herefordshire restaurant to film an episode of Doctor Who. 

The 31-year-old, who plays the Doctor in the iconic BBC show, is now at the OK Diner in Leominster. 

TV crews have been at the restaurant throughout the day (January 24) with an episode set to be filmed there. 

Many fans of the show have turned up hoping to catch a glimpse of the actors.

In a casting call, people who wanted to appear as extras were told they would be dressing in 1950s attire. 

With the restaurant being a 1950s themed American diner, it was an ideal choice for the production team to film at. Previous filming locations were in Cardiff and Penarth. 


Last year, Doctor Who celebrated its 60th anniversary with previous Timelord, David Tennant making three special appearances.

At the end of the final one, Ncuti was revealed as the new Doctor, with the actor then starring in a full-length Christmas special. 

A new series is set to air in May. The episode that is currently being filmed in Leominster will then appear in Ncuti's second series.
