A LLANELLI pensioner swapped her usual morning routine for life on a film set when she spotted Doctor Who crews in her hometown.

Ruth Edwards joined directors and cameramen to watch an episode of the sci-fi drama being filmed at Box Cemetery.

And she was delighted to meet the cast afterwards, chatting to the Doctor himself — Matt Smith — as well as Karen Gillan, who plays Amy Pond.

"It was really exciting," she said.

"Only one scene was shot, and I can't say what happened, but the Doctor was quite scary.

"I didn't realise how hard they work just to get one scene — it was repeat, after repeat, after repeat — and there were so many people involved."

    by arnoldlane..flipping heck, you are grumpy. This is "mildly interseting". Local woman stumbles across film shoot and meets the stars. I thuink more of these stories are what we want to see. Nice, good, gentle news for a change. It obviously interested you enough to comment, otherwise just ignore it if it doesn't float your boat.
