The Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder Exhibition is set to move from its current Liverpool location to Edinburgh as it continues to tour around the UK. The exhibition runs at its current location until 6th November 2022, then from 9th December 2022 to 1st May 2023, the Exhibition will be housed at the National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Tickets are already on sale, heralded by the materialisation of the TARDIS at the future venue! As with the previous venue, visitors will be coming face to face with some of the Doctor’s worst enemies including Daleks, Cybermen, and the Weeping Angels in the Monster Vault.
What has set this Exhibition apart from past shows is that this focuses on the science behind the stories, with eight zones covering different and diverse scientific subjects with the Doctor Who elements thrown in. There are a number of experiences and interactive features including Cosmic Curiosities, a TARDIS tech room, and a section asking whether time travel could actually be possible. Other topics include DNA manipulation, cloning, and black holes, and looks at the future of artificial intelligence and what it means for humanity.
Also, around the exhibition, there is narration from Mark Gatiss who expressed how pleased he was take part in the project as well as talking about how many people have gotten into the sciences thanks to Doctor Who. The writer and actor said:
“So many people who have gone on to work in science have had their interest piqued by watching Doctor Who, and one of the amazing things about the show is its ability to make us wonder. I’m thrilled to be part of the exhibition and I do hope as many curiously minded people as possible take the opportunity to visit when it arrives at the National Museum of Scotland.”
There’s lots of things to keep fans of all ages happy, with many models including K9, the K1 Robot, different Cybermen heads, sonic screwdrivers, and plenty of monsters. But it will also explore the connections between Doctor Who and Scotland, focusing on the three Scottish leads, Sylvester McCoy, David Tennant, and Peter Capaldi, while hopefully coinciding with Ncuti Gatwa’s incoming Doctor! Other contributors include the likes of Neve McIntosh, Karen Gillan, Michelle Gomez, and Steven Moffat.
The Worlds of Wonder Exhibition has proven very popular at its current Liverpool location, and hopefully, it will continue to prove a popular destination for dedicated fans and newcomers of all ages for the next few months!
