    it’d be brilliant if they could do a tour but it’d be really hard to stage with it being promenade

    it a play with actors but you walk through it and are part of it rather than just watch it from a seat, sounds a bit like the experience but on a more personal level

    oh yea, and don’t dress up like the doctor or anything, it could ruin the experience.

    i went to this last year. They said it was a “one time experience”, so why are they doing it again> unless this is for adults. I’m not saying anything as it was th emost awsome thing ever! if you go to this one you will really feel as if you have been in doctor who. its nothing like doctor who live or the experience, this ACTUALLY feels like doctor who. The actors are great, the sets are great, matt smith is great, unlike the expeirience and live you acctually get to do stuff (like search for items and ask questions to different characters for information)and the story is AMAZING. Sorry im going on but i still remember every second of it as it was so good!
