TOWN centre visitors got quite a shock when a Doctor Who star and his BBC film crew pulled up right next to them.
John Barrowman, who played Captain Jack Harkness in the hit TV sci-fi show and its Torchwood spin-off, was in Berkhamsted High Street the day before the Petertide Fair.
Fete chairman Judith Limbert and some school students were making last-minute preparations in The Court House, Church Lane, at the time on June 10. The BBC team pulled up outside nearby St Peter’s Church in a white transit van.
John signed one of Judith’s Petertide Fair reusable bags. She will auction it off for charities Sunnyside Rural Trust and the McCabe Educational Trust.
