I’ll admit it, I did not care for Doctor Who as a child. I still remember being forced to sit and watch the Tom Baker episodes on PBS. It was one of those shows that I just hated having to sit through as a kid… like Barney Miller. Anyways, now that I’ve grown up and blossomed into the fully formed geek that you see before you, I have changed my tune. No, I still don’t like the Tom Baker episodes, but I started watching when they first relaunched the series with Christopher Eccleston. From that point on, I was hooked. I’ve never missed an episode since, including every episode of Torchwood.
Now, being based out of Orlando, I have plenty of great attractions. In fact, I just went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and it was even more amazing than they say in the reviews. For all the stuff we have, we don’t have what is currently going on in London, The Doctor Who Experience. If you are a Whovian, than buy a plane ticket, because your Mecca now exists.
Here’s the official description and an amazing video that makes me want to go to London tomorrow.
Open now at London’s Olympia Two, the Doctor Who Experience is an unmissable adventure featuring an exhilarating and unique walk-through experience and an awe-inspiring exhibition.
The Doctor Who Experience invites you to step through a crack in time to become the Doctor’s companion on an adventure allowing you 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. Special scenes filmed with Matt Smith as the Doctor combined with amazing special effects and the chance to enter a recreation of the modern TARDIS.
The exhibition element of the Doctor Who Experience charts the success of the TV show from the first series in 1963 to the most recent episodes starring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan. Displays in the exhibition will include items never seen before including original costumes, the Tom Baker TARDIS police box and two authentic TARDIS sets from the eras of David Tennant and Peter Davison. You will also be able to get up close and personal with iconic sets from recent series, including the Pandorica Box and Chair and confront numerous monsters including several generations of the Daleks and Cybermen as well as Silurians, an Ice Warrior and a Zygon.
