From Kilvert's Diary to Dr Who
Treberfydd has been used as the location for a number of films and television dramas. In the 1970s, these included two episodes of the BBC series Kilvert's Diary, and more recently a romantic comedy for German television, and fashion shoots. In 2012, the house appeared in the Dr Who Christmas Special, starring Matt Smith and featuring Richard E. Grant. Please click here to see a trailer for the show.
This was the second visit from the Time Lord. In the spring of 2007, BBC Wales filmed two episodes of the popular sci-fi series at Treberfydd, both starring David Tennant. These episodes, "The Family of Blood" and "Human Nature," were set in 1913 and used the house as a boys' school. They have both been rated as among the very best of the revived series. As a result, Treberfydd House is a popular stop for Dr Who fans in groups organised by the BritMovie Tours.
