New Doctor Who Exhibition Announced
Including your chance to pilot the TARDIS and newly-filmed footage
The BBC has announced a major new Doctor Who exhibition that sounds a lot more interactive and exciting than the previous “museum display” type exhibitions. Visitors will get the chance to step inside the TARDIS and defeat the Daleks at The Doctor Who Experience which will include special effects and newly-filmed scenes featuring current Doctor Matt Smith.
Tickets go on sale this month for the show, which opens at London’s Olympia on Sunday 20 February. It includes an exhibition charting the history of the programme from its first series in 1963 to the latest episodes. Original costumes, a Tom Baker-era TARDIS and Cybermen, Silurians and a Zygon will also be on display.
Executive producer Steven Moffat says: “The Doctor Who Experience is a fan’s dream come true – a fully interactive adventure that will allow viewers of the show to get as close as possible to some of the scariest monsters from the series.
“It will also be the first time that Doctor Who artefacts from all the show’s 47-year history – classic and new – will be on display together, many of them being seen for the first time. And never mind that, this is the day the Doctor teaches you how to fly the TARDIS through time and space, and takes you into battle with all his deadliest enemies in a brand new adventure. So steady your nerves and bring your own sofa – the Doctor needs you.”
The Doctor Who Experience will eventually be given a long-term home in Cardiff in 2012.
Tickets for the show go on sale through www.doctorwhoexperience.com on 18 November.
