There was relief to see Bessie parked in the exhibit instead of her previous place in the foyer.
The usual row of the previous Doctor’s costumes was there too, with Peter Capaldi’s incarnation standing high and mighty next to the TARDIS. It was exciting to see the new additions of costumes and props from last year's series too!
Many fans too will be pleased that the 'Daleks Through the Ages' is still there, being led by their creator, Davros. The walk-in Dalek, which allows the visitor to move its “arms” is still there too, the other beautiful addition is that of the selection of Sarah Jane’s costumes from the 80’s up to modern day Doctor Who.
It was exciting to see the props and sets from the 50th Anniversary specials, mainly The Day of the Doctor and Adventure in Space and Time.
The props are the actual original so many fans will find the temptation to actually touch the pieces hard to resist.
The overall redecoration has done the Experience a favor. The dark colours on the walls makes the props, costumes and sets stand out more. Even the electronics that hide behind the rubber masks were present, which gives a good insight to many enthusiastic fans that are eager to discover what actually goes on behind the scenes.
The addition of classic props and images is not only a warm-hearted nod to the show’s origins. The display also looks to the future and where the show could be in another 50 years time.
So in conclusion, the brand new regenerated Doctor Who Experience will appeal to many fans alike and will never lack the magic that the show has brought to audience members globally.
