He is used to whizzing through time in his trusty blue TARDIS but Doctor Who chose a different time machine on Saturday afternoon.
Actors Matt Smith and Karen Gillan arrived in style at an advanced screening of the new series of Doctor Who, but used another iconic movie vehicle.
The two stars rocked up in a vintage 1981 DeLorean sports car, the very same motor made famous by Marty McFly in Steven Spielberg's Back To The Future saga.

Instead of a standard limousine the pair chose to arrive in the old school car, which has a huge following in the US.
Matt, 29, was dressed as casually as normal in a pair of skinny jeans with a white T-shirt and waistcoat while hiding his eyes behind a pair of aviator sunglasses.
Karen, 24, was much smarter dressed and looked pretty in a strapless polka-dot dress with her red hair flowing down over her shoulders.
