[edit]

Filming of the new Doctor Who series has been thrown into chaos following a blaze at an Italian film set.

The cast and crew of the hit BBC1 show, which is mainly filmed in Cardiff, flew to Rome's Cinecitta set early last week.

They had planned to make an episode themed around ancient Rome for Doctor Who's fourth series later this year.

But last Thursday, a huge fire ripped through the studio, destroying masses of expensive BBC equipment.

Fifty firefighters battled 40ft flames, but by the time the fire was contained, a third of the studio had been destroyed.

An insider said: "It was a huge blaze.

"At one point it looked like the whole studio was a goner. It threw a real spanner in the works for the Doctor Who team.

"They're planning an episode where the Doctor goes back in time to Ancient Rome and thought it would be perfect to use the set."

The Italian film set had recently been used for the Beeb's epic Rome series.

Doctor Who bosses still plan to use the set when the fire ravaged building is restored.

Doctor Who producer Julie Gardner said: "Some of the production team have been looking at locations in Italy for the new series. The Doctor will have a Roman adventure."
