TIME travellers descended on a Barry school last weekend as the premises proved itself a perfect location.

BBC producers hired Holton Primary School with the intention of using it as a set for the forthcoming series of Doctor Who which will feature Peter Capaldi as the new, regenerated Time Lord.

Holton Primary head teacher Andrew Gilbert said: “We had hired the building out to the BBC so they were using our yard and one of our classrooms as a location.

“There were security guards.

“It was quite exciting.”
