I like Dr Who but I'm not one of those super fans that knows all the villains and the order the Drs regenerated in etc etc
I'm happy to watch an episode if I'm about, or miss it if I'm not. But I'm aware there are people that are rather more keen than I am on the entire timey-wimey-ness of it all and so when I received this press release I thought I had better share!!
I confess it did even make me consider a visit, it does sound like the most awesome fun! And for homeschoolers and ...well anyone really, it sounds rather educational too!
The National Space Centre is going all Dr Who!
National Space Centre, Exploration Drive, Leicester, LE4 5NS
31st Jan-1st Feb 2015
Step out from behind the sofa as they look at the science behind Doctor Who – they'll be looking at Time Travel, Teleportation, Regeneration, Robots, Space Travel and providing you with all the information you'll need to stop the next alien invasion on your screens.
You could come face to face with the Deadly Daleks and Cybernetic Cybermen. They've a galaxy of heroes and villains lurking. Maybe K9 will come to your assistance?
Follow their Science Trail around the centre and learn more about the facts behind the Science in Doctor Who. Answer a few simple questions to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy will be appearing alongside his Doctor Who Companion, Ace, played by Sophie Aldred.
They will aslo have a stunning, full size studio replica of the TARDIS console as it first appeared in Doctor Who, alongside not one, but two TARDIS police boxes (well this is time travel after all!)
Members of Project Dalek will be attending the event, with fully mobile Daleks patrolling the Centre too, watch out, you may be EXTERMINATED!
The Daleks are joined by members of the UK 15th Cyber Legion, who will be showing how their amazingly accurate Cyber Costumes are created. Warning, You may be DELETED!
K9 will be trundling around the centre, so look out for the Time Lords best friend! (I adore K9 I wish they'd bring him back for a visit!)
If all that were not enough, there are prop making workshops, live action walk through encounters, a Knitathon (completing a Tom Baker scarf in just two days), costume competition and even the opportunity to design and have your own monster created live!
