HE’S the bungling boyfriend of Amy Pond in Doctor Who.
But Brummie actor Arthur Darvill took time out from his character as Rory Williams to return home to the Midlands and open a play ground made out of scrap.
Arthur, aged 29, from Bournville, previously had a job as a play scheme worker, and reckons the new PlayPod at Whitehall Infant School, in Walsall, is a lot like the Tardis.
He said: “It’s simple-looking from the outside, but a world of magic and wonder within.
“Watching the children playing with all this stuff I wonder how we haven’t thought of it before.
“It’s fantastic to see the kids having so much fun with things that would otherwise be thrown away.”
The facility, the first of its kind in the West Midlands, was installed by charity Children’s Scrapstore, which makes practical use of scrap material for youngsters’ play activities, including tubes, crates, netting, phones and keyboards.
