Doctor Who was being filmed in the Main Building today

Capaldi’s in town

The new series of Doctor Who has been filming in Cardiff University Main Building today.

Peter Capaldi returns as the gallivanting Gallifreyan in April with new companion Bill, played by Pearl Mackie.

Crew trucks are parked behind the Law Building, and it seems the filming is taking place across campus.

However, Cardiff will not be appearing as itself. Signs outside main building indicated it will be masquerading as Bristol University.

It’s not the first time university buildings have played host to television stars.

Earlier this year, Benedict Cumberbatch and co took over the SU to film the new series of Sherlock.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of some famous faces.
