Fear is the life-blood of Doctor Who and in Cardiff, this Halloween, the Doctor Who Experience will be upping the fear-factor for some half term terror! The Experience recently received the beautiful reproduction original TARDIS console from docu-drama An Adventure in Space and Time, but is choc-full of sinister beings from the show’s recent and distant past – an ideal setting for Halloween horror…
“Held amongst the largest collection of Doctor Who monsters and props ever assembled, enjoy monster making classes, freaky face painting and pumpkin carving this October half-term. …Transformed into a haunted wonderland, the Doctor Who Experience will be the scariest place to be this half-term.”
Halloween will be taking over the permanent exhibition of all things Who from Saturday 27th October to Sunday 4th November. Activities include monster face-painting with the show’s prosthetic artists and learning to walk like a Peg Doll from Night Terrors or a Scarecrow from The Family of Blood. And on Halloween itself further surprises are promised – methinks there may be more life in the monster exhibits than an ordinary night.
Various question and answer sessions with production staff are also being held and more details can be found on The Doctor Who Experience website. Tickets can be booked online in advance at a reduced price of £13 per adult, £9 per child (5 – 16 years) and with family and merchandise packages available. The exhibition is open for an extended period on Thursday 31st October for Halloween itself, from 10am til 7pm. But better book quickly as places will be in high demand among the fear-hungry younger Who fans!
