The Visitation

With such a rich history, it would surely have been possible to provide much more about past Doctors. Rather than just a costume, why not a timeline, or information about some of their most well known adventures? Or even video clips?

Doctor Who Experience

'A man is the summary of his memories - a Time Lord even more so'

Perhaps space is a consideration, but from a commercial point of view, it would probably provide plenty of opportunities to flog even more DVDs in the shop.

Verdict

It would be unfair of me to try and tell you whether or not The Doctor Who Experience is worth a visit, based solely on the test pilot day: some things weren’t finished, and there was a whole room closed off to us.

Certainly the kids there seemed to be enjoying themselves, but there’s perhaps less in it for the more mature fan. And if you’ve visited one of the other recent exhibitions, you may well feel, as did my companion, that – aside from the walkthrough experience – you’ve not seen anything really new.

Regardless, booking in advance certainly seems prudent. With a family ticket costing £65 on the door, if you succumb to the temptation of photographs, as well as the merchandise, it could easily end up as a £100 day out, if not more. ®
