WATCH: ‘Today’ Co-host Meredith Vieira Visits Set of ‘Doctor Who’

Meredith Vieira

Here’s something to perk you up on a Monday: Meredith Vieira made a visit to the set of Doctor Who recently, and she took us behind-the-scenes of the long-running sci-fi series in a segment that aired on this morning’s (May 9) Today Show on NBC. The affable co-anchor chatted with stars Matt Smith and Alex Kingston. She also flexed her acting chops, filming a cameo appearance that will air in this season of Doctor Who.

Meredith asked Alex Kingston what it takes to be a really good time traveler. Alex’s response? “You have to have a pair of Louboutin shoes.” Awesome.

Watch the video:

Vieira’s Doctor Who gig is part of the “Anchors Abroad” series in which Today‘s stars head overseas for appearances on hit TV series in different countries.

His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
