Camp­bell Cricket au­t­o­gyro G-AXVK played a small but no­table part in the 1974 'Doc­tor Who' episode

Planet of the Spi­ders when the Doc­tor, Jon Per­twee in his last story, uses it to chase the vil­lain­ous Lup­ton. Fol­low­ing thir­teen years of in­ac­tiv­ity, it was the sub­ject of a fas­ci­nat­ing 2002 Dis­cov­ery Chan­nel Sal­vage Squad doc­u­men­tary, where orig­i­nal de­signer Peter Love­grove men­tored the show’s en­gi­neer pre­sen­ters through a com­plete re­build util­is­ing the few use­able orig­i­nal com­po­nents, cul­mi­nat­ing in a suc­cess­ful first flight. This month, how­ever, its reg­is­tra­tion has been can­celled by the Civil Avi­a­tion Au­thor­ity.
