Schoolchildren pen Doctor Who special

FANS of Doctor Who will be able to watch a special one-off episode of the Time Lord’s adventures when the latest series ends on 1 October.

The three-minute spin-off show, called Death Is The Only Answer, was written by children from Oakley Junior School in Basingstoke, Hampshire, after they entered a BBC competition.

Pupils travelled to studios in Cardiff to meet the show’s star Matt Smith during filming.
