This is a totally vague query, but here we go anyway.

I remember watching a Dr. Who episode which was filmed on Barry Island in South Wales (which is where I live). And that's pretty much all I have.

My biology teacher from when I was in sixth form says that he was used as a body double for a motorbike sequence.

Thank u

The 1987 story 'Delta and the Bannermen" was filmed at Barry Island. It did feature motorbikes- a scooter of some variety and a Vincent.

Holy moly!!!!

I didn't expect any1 2 b able 2 answer such a vague query, let alone so quickly. My biology teacher must have been telling the truth then (or else a very elaborate lie).

Cheers very much. I'm gonna get hold of that.

No problem smiley - ok It's odd the stuff people around here know. I'm fairly sure Delta has been released on video. WHat does you're teacher look like? Then I can tell you if he matches the description of any of the ppl riding bikes...

I'm still amazed at the speed u got that. I was thinking I'd cause grief, arguments etc. about what the episode was. Are you sure you're not Dr. Who - travelling back in time with the no. (sorry crap joke).
I've actually seen the episode but I was really young, I think about 6 and I can't really remember it except 4 1 scene.

My biology teacher has got long hair n a beard and he used to be a rocker. He's got a very distinguished appearence. His hair's gray now, tho I'm not sure what it would have been then. Probably brown. Or gray.

I'm definitely gonna buy a copy of it - if i can find it. I used 2 know some1 who had it - but I've fallen out of touch with them.

Long hair and a beard, hmm, that doesn't really match the description of anyone on the bikes... Rocker yes, but Billy had slicked-back hair and was in his twenties... You sure he wasn't one of the team that supplied the bikes, throughout the 80s there was a set of biker lads that provided all the bikes the Dr. Who team needed...

Yeah he said he was used for aclose up of his hands driving the motorbike - so there's probably not a shot of his face, unfortunately.

I'm afraid I can't help either - the Doctor Who Location Guide tells you what was filmed where, but so far there isn't a "Doctor Who Body Part Guide" out to say whose arms and legs are in each shot.

Anyone here wanting to write one? smiley - winkeye
