Doctor Who Experience Cardiff Bay
This interactive journey takes you and the Doctor on a spectacular adventure through time and space. Step through a crack in time and help the Doctor, armed with his Sonic Screwdriver to escape from his foes, fly the TARDIS and come face-to-face with some of the scariest monsters seen on screen including Daleks, Cybermen and Sontarans. Featuring exclusive filmed sequences with Matt Smith and packed with amazing special effects, this multi-sensory experience is fun for the family and fans alike.
After your action-packed journey with the Doctor, there is so much more to see and explore. The world's most extensive collection of original Doctor Who props and artefacts includes the entire collection of Doctors’ iconic costumes from 1963 to the present day; the David Tennant TARDIS set and the Doctor's arch foes through the ages.
Specially created sets, images and interactive experiences allow you to discover first-hand what happens behind the scenes of the iconic television series, how the special effects are created and even how to walk like a Doctor Who monster.
The Doctor Who Experience is open 10am until 5pm with last entry at 3.30pm (Closed Tuesday). Full details at www.doctorwhoexperience.com

Saturday 11 May 2013
Fifty Years of Doctor Who: Terrance Dicks, Graeme Harper, Richard Franklin – and a Dalek!
1.30pm-3.30pm inc. signings / Lincoln Drill Hall
Lincoln Inspired joins forces with The Doctor to mark his golden jubilee. Writer Terrance Dicks was script editor from 1968 to 1974. He wrote many key episodes plus the 20th anniversary episode The Five Doctors in 1983. He also wrote many of the novelisations of Doctor Who stories in the 70s and 80s. He was as big a name to fans then as current supremo Stephen Moffat is today. Director Graeme Harper’s relationship with the Doctor goes back to 1966 and Patrick Troughton’s first story The Power of the Daleks. His first as director was the last story to feature Peter Davison, broadcast in 1984, which fans regard as one of the best ever. He went on to work with Colin Baker and, 20 years later, returned in 2005 when David Tennant was The Doctor. So far he’s the only director who’s worked on the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ shows. Actor Richard Franklin played Captain Mike Yates, sidekick of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart at UNIT, from 1971 to 1974, fighting mutated maggots and The Master. The panel will be talking to Siren FM’s Alex Lewczuk – and look out for a Dalek (courtesy of Waterstones) too! Merchandise from Doctor Who specialist cult TV and comic shop Galaxy Four will be on sale.
