Doctor Who Experience Pictures and Video

Doctor Who Experience Pictures and Video

Today saw the opening of The Doctor Who Experience after its move from London to its permanent home in Cardiff bay. Large crowds gathered for each venture through the experience with over 1000 people expected in the 1st day. Various monsters were on hand to entertain the waiting would be time travellers.

Various new props and monsters have been added to the exhibition, which is now on 2 levels, including the silent time ship although the walk through is similar to London at this time but still very entertaining and scary in places!

As series 7 progresses no doubt further new exhibits will be added – and they dont have far to come as Doctor Who is currently being filmed just a few hundred yards way.

There is an extensive on-site shop selling a whole range of merchandise including exclusive mugs, t shirts, phone covers and postcards

Below is our video and photographs of the event. The pictures represent just a small part of what’s on display.

    • booboo

      August 16th, 2012 - 11:40am

      5 years is a long time, they will have to judge to popularity to see if its viable to extend it further

    I took my son to see the new building and we had a great time down in cardiff, if you have yet to decide about going i can recommend it!
    We loved the first part of the experience that takes about half an hour and the effects are mind blowing!
