Earls Court Exhibition Opens
The Doctor Who Exhibition has moved to Earls Court, and was opened last week by Fourth Doctor actor Ahhhhh! Tom Baker.
So until September 18, the Museum Hall at Earlâ€™s Court is the new home of the exhibition, and home to Daleks, Cybermen, Slitheen and countless other enemies, as well as K9 and the TARDIS. New foes and costumes will be added as season 30 progresses.
So whatâ€™s it like getting close to the creatures that have made generations of children hide behind the sofa? Exhilarating and deliciously scary, even for the supposed grown-ups of the press corps who braved the exhibition with me yesterday.
Small children may want to experience many of the exhibits from the safety of a parentâ€™s neck (some adults will too!), but kids of all ages will enjoy feeling almost part of the action. In his opening remarks, the man from the BBC said that this would be the closest thing to being on the set
I’m hoping to get there myself later this year, it really is about time, don’t you think..?
