The TARDIS Lands at Heathrow (Again)!
BBC Worldwide has teamed up with Heathrow to celebrate Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary, and from today, passengers travelling through Heathrow will be treated to a variety of exciting themed experiences including: appearances from the famous Cybermen, TARDIS photobooths, genuine props and memorabilia, and augmented reality experiences.
To mark the launch of the partnership, on July 16th travellers through Terminal 5 will be able to enjoy special performances by the London Philharmonic Orchestra of music from the iconic BBC Wales produced series. In addition, novelist Jenny Colgan, author of the recently released Doctor Who: Dark Horizons will also be signing books for fans on the day.
The Heathrow activity comes as BBC Worldwide celebrates Doctor Who internationally ahead of the show’s 50th Anniversary in November. This weekend the cast of the show, including Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman, as well as showrunner Steven Moffat will be attending Comic Con, a huge entertainment convention in San Diego attended by over 130,000 people across four days.
