This cache is temporarily unavailable.

GizmoKyla: Hi k.wade,

One of our roles as a reviewer is to monitor our region for caches that have been disabled for a long time, have had a reasonable number of DNFs or appear to require some maintenance. This is done through running a query on a database of all the caches in our region that looks for such things or by cachers submitting Needs Archiving logs as it appears maintenance may not be being carried out by the CO.

It would appear that this cache may benefit from some attention by the CO. May we ask that the owner checks the cache and sort out any problems with it or gives an indication of when it may be up and running again for people to find. If this cannot be done or if the CO no longer wishes to maintain the cache then the listing should be archived.

Of course if the CO has visited the cache recently then please post an Owner Maintenance log indicating that they have done so, enable the listing, and all should be fine.

In the future, if a listing is going to be disabled for a long time then posting periodic notes to the page (once per month or so) keeps people up to date with what is happening.

This isn't a requirement to fix the cache immediately but if it's unlikely to be done within 30 days could the CO post a note to the cache page giving an indication of when the maintenance will be done, or an indication of why it cannot be carried out.

If you plan on repairing this cache, please log a note to the cache (not email) within 30 days so we don't archive the listing for non-communication.

Emails to us may be missed or go astray and it would be a shame to archive the listing due to missing correspondence.

The Geocache Maintenance guideline explains a CO's responsibility towards checking and maintaining the cache when problems are reported.

Sadly if there is no response to this log after 30 days we may have to archive the cache.

Please note that the guidelines say that if a cache is archived by a reviewer or Geocaching HQ staff for lack of maintenance then it will not be unarchived - Unarchiving a Geocache

Geocache Description:

Another of the caches that take you to filming locations for the Doctor Who series, though in this case it was actually a Christmas Special.

This is one of a series of caches based on locations used for filming Doctor Who, both the latest series and earlier ones. If you're near such a location and want to add to the series, just let Pezzini know so that she can keep the numbers without duplicates and please keep to the naming convention of starting the series with "Who Was Here: ". Thanks

"The Runaway Bride" was the first appearance of Catherine Tate as ‘Donna’, hence the Nan reference in the title. St Johns Church is where the interiors shots of the wedding were filmed. I know that the name of this cache is a mix of "Doctor Who" and "The Catherine Tate Show", but that’s to give you a clue as to what you are looking for – it was originally a nano, and despite undergoing more transformations than the Doctor himself it is a nano again now.

Because there are a lot of possible places where it could be, please make sure that you replace it exactly where you found it. That allows me to give a precise hint to anybody who needs one. While you’re in the area, you might like to look at a few other places where I can’t place caches because (a) they are too close or (b) there’s no way of putting caches near them. If you’ve found The Runaway Nan-o, look up and you’ll see St David’s Market used in “Love and Monsters” where Elton (Mark Warren) tracks down Jackie (Camille Coduri) doing her shopping. Look further down you’ll see the Howells department store, if you go down the lane beside this, you’ll get to the other end and look back to see the façade that was blown up in “Rose” as the store where Rose worked. This also appeared in “The Christmas Invasion”. Back at the cache, you only have to turn around to see the Queen’s Arcade which appeared in “Rose”, as did Working Street to your left as you look at Queen’s Arcade. Working Street also appeared in “Voyage of the Damned”, it is the point where The Doctor (David Tennent) and Astrid Peth (Kylie Minogue) spoke to the paper seller (Bernard Cribbins). If you go down the High Street Arcade, you’ll see the spot which appeared in “Ghost Machine”. Turn right at the top of Working Street and you’ll be in the pedestrian Queen Street, which has appeared variously in “The End of the World”, “Blink” and “Smith and Jones”. There are other filming locations in the area, but this list is getting long enough already.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are a new member PLEASE make sure that you have validated your email address. This allows other members to contact you. This is especially important if you are having trouble finding a particular cache, as it allows the cache owner to send you an extra hint.

This cache was originally placed by Pezzini, and then later adopted by lefthanded99, who has kindly allowed us to take ownership of this cache so we can keep it going.
