TELEVISION and film star Christopher Eccleston visited the Queens Head, Askham, while in the area to film a new series called Safe House.
"He had a bite to eat with us and then made our daughter, Katie Norman, very happy by sitting with her for half an hour and chatting to her about his time as the ninth Dr. Who in 2005. Katie is a huge Dr. Who fan and he just happens to be her favourite doctor," said her father, John, who runs the inn with wife Eileen.
Being born in Salford, Chris is a big Manchester United fan and he returned to the Queens Head later in the day to watch a game on television with some of the locals. "All agreed what a really nice guy he was and that he had time for everyone," added John.
