Cavan Scott, comic book author on the Titan comics Doctor Who range, will be showing us exactly what goes into writing and creating a comic strip in our Doctor Who Gallery on Wednesday 10th and Wednesday 17th August. Learn from expert himself and get the opportunity to create your very own Doctor Who comic story!

NEW added TARDIS console! (1977-81 replica) - from 1st August
You will also be able to see a newly added TARDIS console, built for the 50th anniversary Day of the Doctor 2013 trailer in our special 50th anniversary area. Originally only half built as filming only required one side to be seen, we’ve completed the build of the console to its complete state where it will appear as part of a 1977-81 TARDIS interior exhibit.

See its cameo in the trailer from 2013 here - beady eyed fans can see it at 29 seconds in:

Restoration project - 27th & 28th August
We’re asking Doctor Who fans of all ages to help us choose which Classic Who monsters to restore as part of our ongoing Doctor Who Experience: Restoration project. (Please note: voting has now closed.)

The Restoration project sets about to reveal the stories behind the original, screen used artefacts, how they were made, what went into the design processes of their time - and how those methods are replicated today to bring them back to life and their original glory. The restored monster will be revealed on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August, 2016.

PLUS we have extra events and activities in store across the bank holiday weekend - check back here for more information!

A summer packed full of events for all your friends and families to enjoy, make sure you plan a visit to the Doctor Who Experience this summer! #HomeOfWho.
