Last chance to rescue the Eleventh Doctor

Doctor Who Experience Regenerates

Last chance to rescue the Eleventh Doctor from the Pandorica

As with the Doctor himself, regeneration at the Doctor Who Experience is inevitable. From the 1st September, 2014, visitors to the attraction in Cardiff Bay will no longer have the opportunity to rescue the Eleventh Doctor – played by Matt Smith – from the Pandorica, as the existing storyline in the immersive adventure of the Doctor Who Experience is to be refreshed. More details will be announced about the updated storyline later this year.

Fans wishing to take part in the current adventure – flying the TARDIS with the Eleventh Doctor and facing some of his most famous foes in the process – can book tickets up until the 31st August at

The entire Experience including the free-flow exhibition will then close on the 1st September for approximately six weeks with the aim of re-opening in time for the school holidays at the end of October. When the attraction re-opens it will also welcome props from Doctor Who S8, the highly anticipated debut series of the Twelfth Doctor played by Peter Capaldi.

As in previous years to celebrate the start of summer the Doctor Who Experience reopens the popular walking tours of Cardiff Bay, starting tomorrow (14th June). The tours will run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday between tomorrow and 20th July, and more regularly throughout the summer holidays. Check the website for availability.

Tickets for the Doctor Who Experience featuring your last chance to fly the TARDIS with the Eleventh Doctor can still be booked up until the 1st September via

    I wish we had a Dr Who experience (or two) here in the U.S. I can’t afford to just hop on a plane abroad, then buy tickets to the exhibition at any old time – certainly not for just myself, plus I’ve converted my whole family, so I’d want to bring them, too. I’d rather save to go to WhoCon.

    New reason to persuade my parents to take me again…! Personally, I think it’s good for it to change as then people will go again, and less people may go one it has become ‘outdated’. However, I do understand the issues with some people missing the Matt Smith version.

    I never got to go the the Doctor Who Experience. I just can’t even afford the trip from America to Wales. I’m sad that I won’t ever be able to go while my favorite Doctor is still a part of it. However, times change, and so must he… I wonder what the new “Experience” part will be?

    Saturday 5th March 2011 and Mstt Smith spoke to me… It’s upsetting to think that one of the most icnic things about the Eleventh Doctor’s era is beginning to fade. Here’s to Matt Smith, whom we saved as much as he saved us…
