Doctor Who News no image

Doctor Who Experience Photos!

Seven new pictures from the soon-to-be-opened Doctor Who Experience exhibition have found their way onto the CBBC Newsround site!

Included in the gallery are two photos from the highly-anticipated Eleventh Doctor’s TARDIS interior (right), and disappointingly, from what we can see, it doesn’t appear to be a spot-on replica.  Is it just our perception or has it been outfitted to accommodate large crowds?  And where’s all the staircases and platforms?  Are they just hidden from the camera or have they been removed altogether?  Still, the console looks spectacular and we can’t wait to get our hands on it!

Other images include two members of the Experience team (decked out in spiffy lab coats, we might add) putting some finishing touches on a Davies-era Dalek sitting next to a Moffat-era yellow Eternal Dalek for a display that appears to be showcasing the, erm… “evolution” of the Skaro natives.  After that you’ll see two pics of a row of Cyber-heads from various eras of the show, and you may note that the modern Cybus model is mysteriously absent.  No doubt that’ll crop up elsewhere.

There’s also a quick shot of K-9, and a rather imposing image of the K-1 Robot from Robot, so big that an Experience staff member has to stand on a ladder in order to adjust its neck!

The Doctor Who Experience opens this Sunday in London.

    I will defend them slightly in that they did tell Doctor Who Magazine they didnt have enough space to have it on a raised platform as in the series.

    Slightly disappointing that it’s not a 100% recreation of the 11th Doctor TARDIS set. But given the platforms, steps and drops on that set, it’s understandable that they’ve had to adapt it for a big exhibition. Not only for Health and Safety reasons, but also to enable better access for people with mobility impairments.

    They could just say it’s a slight modification of the TARDIS desktop theme. :-)

    And it’s musch better than a Star Trek exhibition I went to in Birmingham several years back. Where the “transporter console” was actually a control box for the spotlights that gave the transporter effect. NO effort had been made to make it look like any console from any Star Trek series or film. Also, several of the exhibits were labelled incorrectly. Still, they had “Way of the Warrior” on continuous loop, so it wasn’t all bad. :-)

    I am going next Tuesday 22nd February. Already a bit disappointed as I won’t be able to touch any of the console sets there.
    Also the photos on other sites from the Exhibition team have got several Cyber heads. One is a Wheel in Space head yet they are calling it a Moonbase one Aghh!
