From Mother Church to Mother Ship


A friend said last night that Clifton Cathedral had been on Doctor Who. We don't watch television, so I missed it. 

The inside of our Cathedral (the Mother Church of our Diocese and the seat of authority of our Bishop) was the stage set of "Fugitive of the Judoon". If you watch the interview from YouTube you can see the Cathedral, the Stations in the background, the stained glass, the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, the Ambo, the sanctuary. 

They turned the altar into a control panel for an alien mother ship. 

There a nice shot of Captain Jack kissing Bradley Walsh about 2 minutes in, just in front of the altar. 

I was ordained Priest there. My 'concelebrated' first Mass was there. I turned bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ on that altar. 

I never liked the architecture of the Cathedral, but I always knew that at least it was the house of God. 

I don't think it will ever be quite the same again.
