Dr Who cast pictured filming through the night at Cornish resort for May episode
Who's that guy? It's Matt Smith of course, the 11th Doctor Who, who has been in Cornwall this week filming an episode from the next series of the long-running BBC sci-fi series.
Smith, 28, has been filming in the docks at Charlestown, near St Austell, alongside Karen Gillan, who plays his companion Amy Pond.
Hugh Bonneville, most recently seen playing the lord of the manor in Downton Abbey, is also in the episode, reportedly playing a pirate captain.
Our photographer Mike Thomas captured these images as the cast filmed through the night on Wednesday and into yesterday aboard the tall ship The Phoenix.

And while filming, news of which was revealed in the Western Morning News earlier this week, they were besieged by hundreds of fans who descended on the small town to watch events unfold.
Charlestown is a popular venue for television and film. It featured in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, released last year. It is the first time in 40 years that filming for the series has been to Cornwall. In 1971 Baal Pit featured as a planet surface in the episode "Colony in Space" starring the third doctor Jon Pertwee.
The next series of Dr Who, Smith's second since taking over from David Tennant, airs in the spring, with the Cornish-filmed episode broadcast in May.
