Former Blackadder star Sir Tony Robinson has been spotted filming in Kent today.
The actor turned Time Team presenter was seen cruising along the River Thames earlier to shoot a new series for his Channel 5 show about the River Thames.
Tony – famed for his role as Baldrick in the BBC sitcom Blackadder – met up with the Port of London Authority at their Gravesend office in Royal Pier Road.
During his visit the 74-year-old was treated to a guided tour of the team's operations before embarking on a cruise along the 200 mile long waterway.
PLA spokesman Martin Garside said the crews were delighted to be able to take Tony out on the water.
He said: "We took him along the river to Tilbury and down to the Dartford Bridge.
"He looked at different aspects of what we do...the work of our pilot's department and also our control room. He was very easy to talk with."
Production spent around three days filming at the location as part of the Channel 5 show which has been renewed for a second series.
With Tony at the helm it sets out to explore the history and influence of the world-famous river and the settlements that have sprung up along its grassy banks.
It's not the first time the comic and documentary presenter has been spotted in Kent as he was also seen filming for the same series at the orchards of AC Goatham , based in Rochester , this summer.
It has not yet been confirmed when the show will air but it is understood to also feature many other landmarks across Kent.
