The Wirral-based Doctor Who attraction at Spaceport has extended its Art of Doctor Who exhibition until March 1st – and to celebrate they’re giving away a Cybershade mask!
The wraith-like bronze Cybermen variants were seen briefly in the 2008 Christmas episode The Next Doctor, and were supposed by the Doctor to be Cybernised animals. The mask to be given away is a Millenium FX original, used in the actual episode…
Ken Moss, Spaceport Manager, said: "We wanted something big to celebrate the fact that we have extended The Art of Doctor Who exhibition until March 1st, and we’re absolutely delighted to have the Cybershade head – it’s a ‘money can’t buy’ piece of celluloid history.
"There will be a prize draw open to every visitor and the lucky winner will be able to keep this unique prize forever."
Alongside the Cybershade head, the Spaceport exhibition showcases many props, costumes and monsters from Doctor Who as well as background information into how the programme is made, exhibits on the craft behind monster making and useful state of the art interactive touch-screens.
Spaceports Art of Doctor Who exhibition uniquely offers visitors the chance to see how Doctor Who is created from the first script to the final television programme – with over 70,000 visitors attending since opening in May 2008.
