So if you want to have Ood-les of fun this February half term, visit The Doctor Who Experience at London’s Olympia by the 22nd!

The Doctor Who Experience allows visitors to join the Doctor on a journey through time and space, encountering some of the best-loved and scariest monsters from the hit international, television series.

    Somewhere in London there are monsters ready to be taken to a new home. The signs of ‘Here Now’ and ‘Book Tickets’ are being taken down and the merchandise of a magical shop is being packed away.
    No more music and sounds from the speakers. Silence has fallen all around!
    But somewhere out there is a blue police telephone box and it’s ready to materalise in a whole new world.
    This Summer the Doctor Who Experience lands in Cardiff! Are you ready?

    I didn’t do the Pandorica or TARDIS photo thingies. They were a bit too much to be honest as was some of the merchandise in the shop but it was still great and I did get some nice items! 🙂

    Was there because I asked about going, we ahd a holdiay 4th-6th of January this year and we went and I had such a great time !

    The highlight was probably when I got my photo’s done on green screen with the Tardis and being trapped inside the Pandorica. The other best part was the actual show, very special Experience indeed.

    My only dissapointments were that you couldn’t actually use the Tardis consoles at the exhibition part, although you could look and get REAL close I thought you were allowed to be right at them, and pose like the Doctor.
    🙁 ❗ And the Doctor’s costumes I didn’t see Sylvester McCoy’s scarf, and Colin Bakers cat-badge wasn’t anything like the real one ! Although it was mostly all the real costumes ofcourse ! 😀

    Other than that, I totally had a great time, it’s the best.

    I went for my birthday and really enjoyed it, but thought that the ‘Half an hour’ walk-through was a bit of a let-down. It lasted about 15 minutes! It was still a great day out, though.

    Sounds fantastic, but sadly London is too far away from where we live, and would cost too much money. 🙁
