 Dr Who materialises at museum

Lifestyle | Article

Fans of Britain’s most popular Time Lord will be beating a path to Peterborough Museum to see an exhibition on the Doctor Who TV series from Saturday 26 May until Sunday 17 June.

The new exhibition builds on the success of a smaller display which attracted thousands of visitors last year.

The museum will be celebrating Doctor Who’s contribution to popular culture over the past four decades with a display on the history of the series, memorabilia, a prop police box and some full-sized Daleks.


Visitors will be able to look into a recreated 1960s living room and see the first Doctor Who episode as viewers would have see it broadcast in 1963, as well as pilot a miniature Dalek around a maze. Youngsters can even design their own monster and stage their own Doctor Who adventure in a recreated ‘wobbly set’!

Stuart Orme, museum visitor services and marketing manager for Peterborough City Council, said: “Doctor Who has been a British cultural icon since it started in 1963 – the world's longest running sci-fi series. The return of the Doctor and the popularity of the latest series have encouraged us to create this exhibition, which builds on the success of our event last year.

“We have had so many requests for a repeat we have expanded the theme into this exhibition.”

The exhibition will be supported by a programme of Doctor Who activities, including free fun craft activities for families each morning from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm during half-term (Tuesday 29 May to Friday 1 June).

On Saturday 2 June there will be a Doctor Who fun day with a visit by costumed monsters from the series as supplied by Hyde Fundraisers, along with activities and a fancy dress competition. Admission to this event is £2 for adults, £1 for children (under 5s free) with all proceeds donated to Children in Need and Help the Aged.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 26 May until Sunday 17 June and is open from 10 am to 5 pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays and from 12 noon to 4 pm on Sundays and bank holiday Monday. The museum is closed on other Mondays. Admission is free.
