Cybermen Storm Coventry!
The Doctor Who Exhibition launched at the Coventry Transport Museum on Friday night – with the Cybermen out in force!
Hundreds gathered on Friday evening to witness an army of Cybermen step from a cloud of smoke near the museum in Millennium Place, Coventry before abducting spectators and storming the museum.
200,000 fans are expected over the next six months to see the TARDIS, the Empress of Racnoss, Sycorax and much more.
Martin Wilkie, from Experience Design and Management, who are staging the exhibition, said: "We had been looking for a suitable venue in the Midlands for quite some time. We chose the museum because it is a fantastic location and has such wonderful space to showcase Doctor Who to its best advantage.
"Another reason for choosing Coventry Transport Museum is because the TARDIS has got to be considered the ultimate mode of transport and the exhibition helps bring alive many of the Doctor’s fantastic adventures."
The Doctor Who Exhibition at the Coventry Transport Museum is open 7 days a week from 10am until 5pm; tickets are £8 for adults and £5 for children available online at www.transport-museum.com
The BBC have preview footage of the exhibition online.
