Been travelling lately? Had to catch a plane from London Heathrow? If that’s the case then you may have noticed some rather Doctor Who-related activities taking place around the airport!
To celebrate 50 years of time travelling fun with the 900 year old madman, Heathrow airport invited a few familiar faces from the Doctor Who Universe to pop by and try their best to take over.

Colgan said a few words to the press to describe the day’s events and also talk about the plot of her novel as well as explain the origins of her very special TARDIS dress that had been exclusively made for her.
Kids were able to pose as the Doctor and Clara as well as stand next to the new Cyberman design that we were introduced to in Neil Gaiman’ s Nightmare in Silver.
