9 May 2009: Western Mail - John and Tracey George's home in Cyncoed was transformed into Catherine Tate's house for Doctor Who. John, director of, and solicitor for Asset Management Solutions in Cardiff, had never thought of putting his home on TV until a letter came through the door. "When we had a letter saying our house met the criteria and could they use it we thought it was a hoax," John says with a laugh. "They filmed four or five times between October 2007 and February 2008 for between half a day to three days. We moved to a hotel when they came for three days. We didn't feel nervous as we enjoyed it. You can't do it for the money. You.ve got to want to do it. We met Catherine Tate and David Tennant. They were great, very friendly. All the neighbours and kids turned up when they were here. They signed autographs and let us take photos."

The downside was that the production team removed the furniture in the front living room, took down the curtains and repainted the cream walls terracotta. "When filming was over it was very odd seeing our house on TV. Friends texted to say they'd seen our kitchen on Doctor Who," John remembers.

As filming ran from October to February the production team left some items behind, notably Catherine Tate's kitchen table. John and Tracey's children Olivia, seven and Ethan, nine, enjoyed inviting friends to eat tea off the celebrity item in breaks between filming.

John says he enjoyed seeing how TV programmes are made. "The team paid enormous attention to detail. The set dressers came and took photos so they could put it back all the same when they came back to film again. On one particularly busy day there were 50 crew and cast in the house and neighbours flocked to see what was happening. For a short period afterwards people still drove by to look at the house that Catherine Tate 'lived in', but no-one has ever knocked on the door and asked to look inside."
