AN EPISODE of Doctor Who is believed to have been filmed at Tyntesfield house this week.

A Tyntesfield spokesman confirmed a BBC show was being filmed over three days on the site but refused to confirm which programme was being made.

He said the BBC had sworn the estate’s employees and volunteers to secrecy and details would be announced nearer the time of screening.
