As a recent fan, it was neat to read more about the history of Dr. Who, and to see how people were so passionate about it. I guess it’s the same as any show with a loyal following, but Whovians (that’s what they call the fans) seem to be in it like no other, and apparently according to data, fiercely loyal to a specific Doctor as well. We started watching the new series a few months ago that had started up again in 2005 and was on Netflix, and have pretty much marathond (made that word up I think, I’m leaving it) it since. We watched every episode going all the way through season five, and had to ask for season 6 for Christmas. It’s only a matter of time before we’ve got to add seven to the collection. On to the exhibit! These were apparently bad guys from the very old episodes, we haven’t seen them yet. There were some amazing portraits by a fan, these are just a couple of the latest Doctors that I really liked.No Dr. Who exhibit would be complete without Daleks littered all over it. There were Dalek toys, statues, fan art, posters, everywhere a Dalek. Just like in Dr. Who, they just turn up everywhere!These masks were creepily real lookingIf anyone wants to get me something for my birthday at the end of this month, I’d like these Dr. Who russian doll type stackems, thanks. With a life sized Tardis on hand, I thought maybe I could be Dr. Who’s next companion…Adam wanted to join as well. Sadly we peeked inside and it was NOT bigger on the inside, so I doubt there’d be very much room for us on this trip.
As I mentioned in Saturdays post about the National Media Museum, we headed back to check out the Dr. Who fan exhibit. You’ve still got time to go if you’d like as it ends the 9th of February. I was surprised at how much fan art, figurines, and general Dr. Who paraphernalia they gathered.
Have you been to any good Dr. Who exhibits? Feed my addiction, I might turn into a superfan.
