Doctor Who 50th anniversary celebrations at Montacute Museum

Celebrate 50 Years Of Doctor Who At Montacute Museum

The Montacute Museum of TV, radio and toys in Somerset is celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who with a variety of Gallifreyan attractions!

Over three weekends in November, visitors can enter the TARDIS and see every incarnation of the Doctor at work around the famous console, (although whether Peter Cushing, Rowan Atkinson and John Hurt will be included in the line-up remains to be seen!)

Then on the 16th and 17th November, there is an opportunity to meet the Fourth Doctor himself, (almost!), as the official Tom Baker lookalike Ian Britten-Hull will be on hand with K9 to talk about his “real life Time Lord adventures.” This precedes a special appearance of a replica K1 giant robot on the 23rd and 24th, which stands at over 7 feet tall and was first seen in the Fourth Doctor’s debut story.

The museum also promises a huge nostalgic collection of memorabilia from a range of classic television shows, as well as Dalek-shaped biscuits in its café!

Tickets are priced at £6.99 for adults and £4.99 for children, with a 49p discount available for seniors and students. There is also a family ticket option, (2 adults + 2 children), on offer at £21.99.

The museum is open from 11am till 5pm at weekends and, should you have any queries, feel free to send your question to, or call 01935 823024.
