Location: Cardiff Bay
|And so it begins...|
I'd heard good things about this event and at last I was finally able to see it all myself. I arrived early so I decided to take a look around the shop (and promptly knew what money I had with me wasn't going to be there for very long) and the props that were in the lobby area.

DOCTOR: Oh you're not even Rory!
So after the interactive adventure you come out into the exhibit area and if you're anything like me and you tend to absorb information like a sponge (hey, it's got to be useful at some point. Like a pub quiz.) then this will be the cave of wonders. Here's a selection of what there is to see:
|Concept art wall.|
|Matt's hand prints|
|Creepy 11 waxwork and TARDIS|
|Original and replica Doctor outfits|
|New series 7 stuff|
|The old TARDIS interior|
|Companion outfits, from the beloved|
|To the new|
|And finally the one who brought it back.|
A good majority of the props are the originals, worn and used by the cast themselves. The sheer size of some of them make them a lot scarier than they can appear on TV. Especially the new Daleks and the robot from 'Robot'.
All in all, this was certainly worth the ticket price (£13 advance/£15 on the door) and I would go again tomorrow if I could. I'll be visiting again soon though, no doubt about it.
