Glasgow Exhibition Preview
The Doctor Who Exhibition at Glasgow opens next weekend (Saturday, 28th March) and it looks set to bring thousands of visitors to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum as the only venue in Scotland holding a Doctor Who event.
Visitors can look forward to Autons, Judoon and Sycorax, not to mention costumes worn by companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) and would-be companion Astrid Peth (Kylie Minogue) alongside a virtual version of the Doctor himself, David Tennant. Amazingly tickets for the two opening days are already sold out.
Bailie Liz Cameron, the chair of Culture and Sport Glasgow, said yesterday that the exhibition was one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year. "Fans of the show have been telling me how much they are looking forward to seeing all these wonderful characters and terrifying monsters," she said.
"This is the only Scottish date for the Doctor Who Exhibition and it promises to be an experience visitors won’t forget in a hurry."
Among the exhibits on show is a Weeping Angel statue, considered one of the most frightening baddies of recent years. Millenium FX’s Neill Gorton:
"We have never had a this is too scary’ discussion in a meeting, but of course Doctor Who is very much about the scare."
"Hiding behind the sofa comes in the same sentence as Doctor Who; it’s such an important part of the programme. I always know where to draw the line."
