Peter Capaldi on the set of the First Doctor's TARDIS at the Doctor Who Experience

The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay will reopen on Friday 24 October 2014 after undergoing its very own regeneration.

The award-winning attraction has been closed since the start of September, allowing the interactive experience to be updated with a newly-scripted adventure starring the Twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi.

Tickets for the regenerated Doctor Who Experience will go on sale on 7 October from doctorwhoexperience.com

The newly scripted adventure - written by Joseph Lidster (Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures) and directed by Paul Wilmshurst (Doctor Who, Da Vinci’s Demons) – lets fans star in their very own episode of Doctor Who. Beginning in the Gallifrey Museum and journeying to the heart of the TARDIS, visitors will have to grapple with a threat which could destroy the universe...

The exhibition space will also be given a refresh, with new props from Peter Capaldi’s debut series as well as sets and monsters from throughout the history of the world’s longest-running science fiction programme.

Also returning are the highly popular TARDIS set tours at neighbouring Roath Lock studios, available to purchase as an extra to general admission. From 24 October to 30 November, around 6000 fans will be able to set foot on the current TARDIS set, as featured in the past two series and the 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor.

Stephen Davies, Director of Live Events and Entertainment at BBC Worldwide says, “As with all of the best Doctor Who adventures, we’ve undergone our very own regeneration down at the Doctor Who Experience and we’re sure Doctor Who fans will be thrilled to take part in a brand new adventure with the Twelfth Doctor.”

Tickets return to general sale on Tuesday 7 October and can be purchased for dates on and after 24 October 2014. Tickets are available from doctorwhoexperience.com and prices start from £14 for adults and £9.75 for kids.
