PUPILS at a Cradley Heath school were treated to an out of this world experience at a recording session of the iconic BBC TV show Dr Who.

Year 10 students Katie Monkton and Natasha Chifamba visited the recording in London after winning a writing competition at Ormiston Forge Academy.

Nicholas Briggs, who plays the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen and other characters, judged the competition during a recent visit to the high school.

They also met the seventh doctor Sylvester McCoy, his companion Sophie Aldred and actor Philip Olivier, best remembered for his role as Tim O'Leary in Brookside Natasha and Katie spent two hours in the studio, at the recording desk with director Ken Bentley, listening to the actors voice a new Doctor Who adventure called The Mask of Tragedy which comes out later this year.

Ormiston’s principal Andrew Burns said: "What an amazing opportunity for these students to go to London and watch a Doctor Who story being created.”
