As previously reported, yesterday evening saw the annual ceremony to switch on the Cardiff Christmas Lights, this year undertaken by the current TARDIS crew of Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill. The three were on hand to launch the festive period, and were accompanied during the evening by festive music from the soul band Supernatural and Bob the Builder. The celebration was rounded off with a fireworks display.

Matt said:
It's a real honour to be asked to switch on Cardiff's Christmas lights because the city has become like a second home to not only me, but the rest of the Doctor Who production team.

We love filming here in Wales and we even managed to get into the festive spirit extra early this year when filming the Doctor Who Christmas special in August.

Cardiff is a great city and I'd like to thank all of its residents for being so welcoming and accommodating.
