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.

The Mass figures for the weekend 31 October, 1 November
The figure in brackets the lower end of how many 'units' can attend. A unit can be one single person, or a whole family/household/bubble - or even those who have travelled together in the same car. So the figure in the brackets can increase. So in Shepton it may be only that 40 single people attend, but if they are in bubbles/families/households/cars, then the number can be much larger.
NOTE: some Mass times have changed.
Wells Saturday 6.00pm - 37 (34) - New Mass
Cheddar Sunday 9.00am - 30 (25) - down 3
Shepton Sunday 9.00am - 31 (40) - down 13
Wells Sunday 10.30am - 28 (34) - no change
Glastonbury Sunday 10.30am - 42 (50) - down 12
Cheddar Sunday 11am - 5 (25) - no change
Glastonbury Sunday 12.15 - 46 (50) - up 2
Our numbers this weekend were down 54 on the weekend before over the four parishes.
257 people came to Mass in total. Our Mass figures would normally have been 573.
