Is It Time for a Doctor Who Restaurant?

The Broth of Oblivion, Kronkburgers, and Gaffbeque – these are the kinds of foods that could potentially be on the menu if suggestions for a new Doctor Who restaurant become a reality.

The Doctor and Margaret Slitheen enjoy a quiet meal.

The restaurant is just one of the ideas being ‘tabled’ by Grub Street food mag and The Independent when the BBC Television Centre at White City gets turned into a £1 billion themed “village” celebrating the programmes made there.

Among the ideas so far are attractions based on Fawlty Towers, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Blue Peter, Doctor Who and Strictly Come Dancing, which were all filmed at the complex.

Developers Stanhope and its partners — Japanese property giant Mitsui Fudosan and Canadian fund manager Alberta Investment Management Corporation – plan to draw on the history of Grade II listed Broadcasting House and the surrounding 14-acre White City plot in West London to create an interactive “visitor experience” using the BBC’s huge catalogue of archive material.

So soon we could be staying at Fawlty Towers hotel, eating lunch at the Hairy Bikers’ restaurant and buying tea and scones from the Great British Bake Off bakery.

David Camp, chief executive of Stanhope, said:

We will be introducing a vibrant and exciting mix of new retail, leisure, office and residential uses while keeping and enhancing the original BBC buildings and retaining key operational BBC studio and office facilities on site.

So would you settle down at your hover table, attract the attention of The Gatherings Waiter and order two cool glasses of Hypervodka?

Coming soon: tea at the Great British Bake Off bakery and lunch at the Hairy Bikers restaurant – News – TV & Radio – The Independent.



Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
