The BBC has been accused of being 'duplicitous and dishonest' over the way it filmed the dramatic ending to the last episode of Doctor Who on top of a famous landmark.<br />
<br />
The finale of the special centenary episode shown on Sunday showed Jodie Whittaker's Doctor with the Tardis on top of Durdle Door in Dorset.<br />
<br />
The rocky arch on the Jurassic Coast is owned by the Lulworth Estate, which the BBC approached for consent to film there.<br />
<br />
James Weld, of Lulworth Estate, claimed the BBC made no mention of wanting to film on top of the 200ft limestone arch which would have been denied had they done so.
