Doctor Who Experience - 18.02.12 by blackbirdrose Doctor Who Experience - 18.02.12 by blackbirdrose
This may be the nerdiest damn thing I've ever done. :dummy: Regardless... best birthday treat EVERRRR. :icondaleklaplz:

There was a Doctor Who Exhibition in London for the past few months, which I was lucky enough to get to go to this weekend, just before it closes on Wednesday. :meow: It's a mix between an exhibition and an interactive "experience" where you get to travel in the TARDIS, you can stand around the control panel and control the navigation/mechanics etc (except that for me that would have involved elbowing small children out of the way, and making 7 year olds cry probably wasn't the "experience" they were aiming for.. :aww:) you get captured by the Daleks, who appear out of smoke and try to exterminate you, you have to go through a room of weeping angels trying not to blink and there's an epic 3D montage of DW monsters at the end. And through out all of that you are guided by video/audio of Matt Smith/Eleven who calls you a "sub-species of human.. called 'Shoppers'".. :lmao: It was so cute! :squee: And the pics above are of the exhibition space, which had all the main costumes of Doctors and companions, as well as various monsters and TARDIS interiors.. oh my goodness, I totally geeked out the whole time. And thanks to my unofficial photographer, my mum. :iconbowplz: Without whom I woudln't have a single photo of myself being a spaz, to show. :iconcreepygrinplz:

Did any other Whovians go to this? :icondoctorwhoplz: And did you have fun? :la:

That's all, just wanted to show you these pics, since they're goofy. :iconretardiloveitplz:

Wow, it sounds amazing!!! Do they do it at intervals, or is it a one-time thing?

It was temporarily set up in London. I think it's a permanent fixture in Cardiff, Wales now. :aww:

Ahhhh you're so lucky!!! I just found this thing on the internet, and I need to go to it now xD Cardiff is so far though... but this would be worth it :3 Just one question, are there a lot of cosplayers? And are there interactive monsters as well? (two questions apparently, hahaha ^^; )

blackbirdrose Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, I know!! So worth it! :highfive: I didn't see any cosplayers while I was there (just a lot of families with children and other, older fans) but I guess they must have some cosplayers attending. :aww: Umm, not exactly 'interactive', but you have room where Daleks appear out of nowhere and want to kill you! :XD: That's sort of interactive? It's part of a walk through interactive 'adventure' that Eleven talks you through (you get to fly in the TARDIS) :w00t: And a room you have to walk through with Weeping Angels. Oh and there was a chance to practice walking like the actors who portrayed those large-headed dolls from season 6(?) but otherwise it was mostly just displays of monsters/costumes/TARDIS interiors. :clap: Still amazing though.

I visited the installation in Cardiff a couple of months ago. The angels gave me the creeps. I swear when we walked through the forest there was an angel there one second and then the lights flickered and it was gone! :O

Oh noes! :ohnoes: Yeah, they were pretty scary - I remember the daleks much more vividly though! :nuu: I just loved the whole exhibition! :w00t: So glad I got to go to the London one before it moved to Cardiff for good. :D
