Former Blackadder star Sir Tony Robinson has been spotted filming along the River Thames in Kent.
The actor turned Time Team presenter was seen disembarking a vessel near Gravesend Town Pier.
During his visit Tony was accompanied by film crews as he was ferried from Tilbury docks to Kent.
The 74-year-old found fame as Baldrick in historical comedy Blackadder but is now equally renowned for his documentary work exploring travel and trade.
Last year he was spotted filming with the Port of London Authority at their Gravesend office for his Channel 5 show about the River Thames, which was renewed for a third series.
But a spokesman from the PLA said they did not assist with the TV personality's most recent voyage.
It's not the first time the comic and documentary presenter has been spotted cruising along the 200 mile long waterway near Kent and he filmed for the same series at the orchards of AC Goatham, based in Rochester, last summer.
Last series' production was also spotted filming at the pier at Queenborough Harbour, located on Isle of Sheppey, as well as at the Redsand (Maunsell) Forts off the shore of Whitstable .
Over the weekend the history presenter posted an update of his whereabouts on Instagram.
The latest shot revealed Tony tucking into a tasty snack while filming as part of a late night shoot for Channel 5.
He wrote: "A delicious Bangkok Bad Boy veggie burger with scampi and chips courtesy of ADM Rapeseed Crushing Mill in Erith, Essex.
"I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the early hours than right here!"
One social media user pointed out the actor had incorrectly located Erith, Bexley as being in Essex.
To which Mr Robinson swiftly corrected himself and quipped: "Derr of course it is. My bad.
"Problem was we spent the first half of the night in Tilbury ( Essex) and by the time we got to Erith I was so out of it with tiredness I could have been in Edinburgh for all I knew."
