Blue Peter Marks Doctor Who’s 60th Anniversary With VIP Tour Competition

To celebrate 60 years of the world’s greatest sci-fi series, Blue Peter is launching a competition that gives one lucky fan from the UK the chance to go behind the scenes of Doctor Who for an exclusive VIP tour.

Plus, they’ll get a limited edition winner’s badge!

Blue Peter is the longest running kids TV show in the world that is still broadcast in the UK and has previously hosted many Who competitions, so it feels right that these two TV giants are linked up again on the eve of Who‘s 60th.

Launching this Friday (28th April 2023), viewers in the UK aged between 5 and 15 will be asked to draw Doctor Who fan art and say why they would love the opportunity to win an exclusive set tour.

One winner will go behind the scenes to discover how the iconic series is made and find out all about the work of the Production Design team. They’ll also receive a rare collectable Doctor Who 60th Blue Peter competition winner’s badge. The limited-edition badge will be revealed on Blue Peter on Friday 28 April and will be awarded to the top 500 competition entries.

Editor of Blue Peter, Ellen Evans, says:

“We’re celebrating two 60th anniversaries this year, for Doctor Who and for the Blue Peter badge. The two programmes have collaborated many times over the years so I’m thrilled to be able to offer such a unique and exciting experience.”

The competition is open for entries from 5pm on Friday 28th April 2023, when full details of how to enter, including rules and privacy notice, will be on the Blue Peter website.

The competition closes at 5pm on Monday 15th May 2023.

The winner and top runners-up will be announced in a Doctor Who takeover on CBBC and BBC iPlayer later in the year.

You can also learn how to create a TARDIS for your bookshelves in a classic Blue Peter ‘make’ shown on the programme last Friday (21st April 2023) and available on BBC iPlayer. Fans in the UK can also head to the Blue Peter website to create their own sonic screwdriver.
