The event looks absolutely fantastic, full of heroes and villains from the shows start in 2005 up to the present. Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Smilers and Sontaran props all put in an appearance. As well as a planetarium, there is also an interactive element called â€œDalek Attackâ€ which will make you dribble with excitement. Interaction, with Daleks!
Before it officially opened on 22nd May 2010, children from St Oswald’s C of E School, in Hebburn, were given exclusive access to the Doctor Who exhibition. The response was extremely positive. Class 6 teacher Robert Grudgings said:
â€œThe children have had a wonderful time. It’s been brilliant, they’re all fans of the TV show, and to see real items from the series has been a huge treat.â€
The children themselves had a great day out, pupil Lauren Richards commented: “It’s like we’re in a real episode of Doctor Who,” while fellow pupil Ethan Clarke described the exhibition as “awesomeâ€!â€
This would be an excellent day out for adults and children alike and a great time to attend during the half term period. Or even if you have to take a day off work!
