National Media Museum Wants Your Doctor Who Memories

Bradford’s National Media Museum has been busy planning their celebrations for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary and they’ve come up with a rather original idea.

Their exhibition will concentrate on Doctor Who’s fans and explore the various aspects of their devotion to, without question, the greatest television show ever made.

So, this is where things get interesting, you can be a part of events. The Museum wants your stories and your memorabilia in order to make this event a lot more personal.

What kind of Doctor Who memorabilia have you got lying around your house? Maybe a rare collectible, a unique piece of fan art or Tom Baker’s shoe from City of Death episode 3? Take a good, long look at it because it could well become part of the show.

All you have to do is submit your Doctor Who story and memorabilia by emailing [email protected] with a photograph of your chosen object and a (maximum) 100 word outline explaining the story behind it, when you got it and why exactly you like Doctor Who so much.

The museum will be collecting contributions until Friday 9th August in preparation for the exhibition run from 12th November 2013 until 2nd March 2014.

The lucky few who are chosen will not have to hand over their treasured Doctor Who possession until they have been officially selected for the exhibition.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
