Guess who's hiding in underground bunker?
TIME-TRAVELLING hero Doctor Who has made a surprise landing in Swansea.
The BBC has been filming the latest series of the show at a council-owned World War Two underground bunker near the TA Centre in West Cross.
The special effects crew arrived on the set early yesterday, and the location was a hive of activity as cameras rolled inside the Joint Resilience Centre, off Mumbles Road.
Location manager Gareth Skelding was keen to keep details under wraps and would not spill the beans on which actors were on location.

He said: "There's very little I can say — it's all a big secret. Obviously, we don't want the storylines to get out. We're filming inside the Joint Resilience Building, which makes it easier to keep it quiet."
Mr Skelding said the crew would spend another three or four days on location in Swansea.
A runner working on the set said: "It would be more than my job's worth to tell you what's going on."
Shopkeepers and residents of West Cross were oblivious to the film crew camped nearby. West Cross mum-of-two Julia Thomas told the Post: "I haven't heard anything. They have obviously done their best to kept it low profile."
And John Simmonds, aged 63, who lives just a stone's throw from the set at Lilliput Lane, said: "I had no idea they were here. I haven't heard or seen anything.
"I'm not a fan, but the kids watch it.
"I'm sure they'll be excited when they find out it's being filmed on our doorstep."
Fans of the show lined the streets of Swansea in April to catch a glimpse of stars David Tennant, Catherine Tate and Bernard Cribbins at the Kardomah Cafe on Portland Street.
The actors were in the city filming scenes for this year's Doctor Who Christmas special, which is to be David Tennant's last episode in the role.
A spokesman for the BBC said: "We have filmed in Swansea a number of times because it has so many great locations that fit our production needs.
"We receive a fantastic reception from the community, which makes filming here a great experience."
