An Isle of Wight ferry firm had a visit from two time-travelling Doctor Who icons, to mark the 60th anniversary of the hit sci-fi series.

On Thursday (24), Red Funnel's East Cowes terminal welcomed the Time Lord's space and time ship, the TARDIS, and his mortal enemy, a Dalek

The duo are owned by Carisbrooke's Roy Spearman, who helps to organise Fan TC Con — the Island’s version of a Comic Con event.

Speaking to the County Press as part of a special Doctor Who feature, Roy revealed how he is known as a TARDIS wrangler — a "dubious honour" bestowed on him for his work on productions for the show.

Roy's TARDIS is called The Old Girl and his Dalek is known as Dale_K.

He brought them down to the East Cowes terminal for Islanders to have a look, as part of a celebration of the show.

It returns tonight with David Tennant once again playing the Doctor for three specials.

Tonight's episode airs at 6.30pm on BBC One.
