The Doctor Who Experience Announce Attractions For Their Last Season

The Doctor Who Experience will sadly be closing its doors…but that doesn’t mean it won’t be going out with bang!
There’s a whole host of fun summer activities lined up before the attraction closes its doors for the last time on the 9th September 2017.
After a successful five-year tenure in Cardiff Bay visitors are invited to join a number of special events running throughout summer. The holidays mark the return of the Filming Location Walking Tours. This final season of tours, starting from the 8th July, are a 75 minute walk in and around Cardiff Bay and feature sites from Series 10 and memorable locations from previous series.
Series 10 content will also be added into the Experience, with the finished exhibition being unveiled on the 8th July. This will include props, costumes and sets from Series 10, that will join the Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie costumes which are already part of the exhibition.

Earlier this year the Doctor Who Experience announced that the Yeti from the Second Doctor serial, The Web of Fear, was voted by fans as the Doctor Who monster they’d most like to see restored as part of the ongoing Restoration Project. So to celebrate, Model Unit expert, Mike Tucker will also be on hand on the 8th July to reveal the final, renovated monster in all its glory.
On 22nd July, the Experience will host its final Monster Event, with the Cybermen as its theme. The day will include workshops and question and answer sessions with monster-makers, Millennium FX; a chance for fans to be converted into Cybermen; as well as live Mondasian Cybermen roaming the Experience floor.
The day will be completed with a viewing of the final two-part episode, first screened on BBC One on 24th June & 1st July, screened in the Experience’s exhibition area.

Later in the holidays, on the 5th August, fans can look forward to the biggest Doctor Who Experience Cosplay Celebration yet. Grab you question mark umbrellas and impossibly long scarfs and head down to the Experience!
Fans should keep an eye on the Doctor Who Experience site for news of additional events and features in the final weeks of the Experience. News of how the Beeb will continue the commercial presence of Doctor Who in Cardiff will be communicated in due course.
Tickets for the Doctor Who Experience’s last summer will be on sale from 12:00 GMT on Friday 16th June from the Doctor Who Experience site
