Dr Who Takes Over Google Maps

Update: The Cyberman and Tardis have now been removed from Google Maps. Boo!

Earlier today I posted about this picture of a Cyberman that has suddenly appeared on Google Maps in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales. I assumed that this was the result of someone playing around with Google Maps Maker to change Google Maps.

However I have now found the TARDIS on Google Maps at a location nearby to the Cyberman .

I think Dr Who is actually produced by BBC Wales. I'm therefore beginning to wonder if this might actually be part of some marketing campaign by the BBC and Google to promote the next season of Dr Who. Please let us know in the comments if you find any more Dr Who related surprises on Google Maps.
