‘Experience’ Classic Who Up Close

The upcoming Doctor Who Experience exhibition will be home to not just NuWho artifacts, but also a huge collection from the good ol’ days.

Speaking to SFX, BBC Managing Director of Live Entertainment Philip Murphy commented,

“We’ve gone into the archives of the production and the sets. We’ve got things like the original Bernard Bresslaw Ice Warrior costume. There’s a lot of stuff that never has been seen before in exhibitions. But obviously there is a limit to what you can do. For example, we can’t feature every companion. We’ve only got a selection of companion costumes, because over 47 years there are just too many.”

But perhaps we’ll at least get to see Sarah Jane’s yellow raincoat, and maybe a plastic mold of Peri Brown’s skin (she never wore anything, did she?).  And if they don’t have Ace’s jacket, we should boycott.

And of course, we can’t forget the full size replica of Peter Davison’s TARDIS interior for guests to explore… we may just skip the costumes altogether and spend our entire visit flying through the vortex!

The Doctor Who Experience opens to the public this February in London before establishing a final, long-lasting nest in Cardiff.

    Does anyone else think this exhibition looks like the most fantastic thing ever?

    Those of you who know me know that I’m not easily excited by much these days, but I’d be like Augustus Gloop in a chocolate factory in this exhibition.

    I went to the Blackpool exhibition a few times in the 70s and 80s, and it was fun at the time, but there was never a complete TARDIS set; usually just bits of one, a few models of spaceships and shop window dummies wearing Mawdryn rags.
