Matt Smith and Karen Gillan have filmed a Wild West episode of Doctor Who - in sunny Spain.

The stars, who play the Timelord and his companion Amy Pond, flew to Almeria in the south of the country to shoot scenes on its well-known desert lots - home to spaghetti westerns The Magnificent Seven and A Fistful Of Dollars, The Sun reported.

The episode, to be screened when the new series of the show returns later this year, will focus on a part-human, part-robot creature which patrols a western town in the Victorian era.

An insider told the newspaper: "Matt and Karen are really excited about the episode. Filming on the same set as a lot of western films, together with the Spanish weather, will give it an epic feel."

This will be Karen's last series of the show. The Scottish star will leave mid-way through the run in what producer Steven Moffat has promised will be "heartbreaking" scenes.

This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
