BBC Plans Doctor Who Festival

The festival will offer fans an exclusive glimpse into how the world of “Doctor Who” is created. Among the attendees at The Doctor Who Festival will be the current Doctor, played by actor Peter Capaldi, and series show runner Steven Moffat.

“I can’t believe we’re going to give away our secrets,” says Moffat. “This is the closest you could possibly get to finding out what happens on set and how this magical show is put together.”

Attendees will explore seasons eight and nine of “Doctor Who” sets and props. Fans of all ages will be able to discover the inspiration behind the Doctor’s recent adversaries, what’s required to create whole new worlds and what goes into designing and making the backdrops that give “Doctor Who” its unique look.

Access to the festival will include an array of backstage areas including theatre shows where visitors can come up close and personal with key talent,

interactive workshops where you can learn the television production process as well as the ultimate "Doctor Who" shopping village for the collectors merchandise and photo opportunities.

“If having the world's favorite Time Lord back on screen every week isn't enough for you (and it's not for me) then The Doctor Who Festival in London is the place to be,” says Capaldi. “I'll be heading there to join the fun and if it’s anything like the 50th anniversary event, then prepare yourself for total Time Lord mania."
