On the night of the 2nd February 2010, the cast and crew of Doctor Who filmed part of the show at Stonehenge.

The BBC Wales website goes into some detail:

The first day, Monday 1 February 2010, saw the Doctor and Amy arriving by TARDIS to gaze upon the Roman encampment, after which actors Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Alex Kingston took their places on horse saddles mounted on the back of a jeep so that close-ups of the Doctor, Amy and River Song could be recorded as if riding on horseback.

Recording at the real Stonehenge in Wiltshire was conducted the following night, and with these establishing shots safely in the can it was back to Foamhenge for the rest of the week[1].

By me, at winter solstice 2012. I don’t think that this is the real Doctor Who. And it wasn’t me that put him on the Sarsen….honest
