BBC Studios and Sarner International have announced a new exhibition, “Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder: Where Science Meets Fiction.” The exhibit will explore the science behind the series “Doctor Who” and will give fans a chance to experience the Doctor’s adventures from a scientific perspective.
“[The team are] delighted to be working with Sarner again, following their creation of the ‘Doctor Who Experience,’” says Paula Al-Lach, events director, live entertainment, BBC Studios. “It is really exciting to explore Doctor Who from this perspective and have the opportunity to take the exhibition to fans globally.”
“Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder” will be at several locations across the U.K. beginning in May, with an ambition to tour internationally.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the opportunity to work with BBC Studios again,” says Ed Cookson, projects director, Sarner International. “For almost 60 years ‘Doctor Who’ has been exploring mind-bending scientific developments and has also influenced a generation of scientists, engineers and artists. The iconic characters, monsters, stories and settings of the television series provide a perfect guide through the wondrous worlds of space, time and life sciences."
The eight zones set within this educational exhibition cover a diverse selection of scientific topics while drawing in content pieces from the full canon of the TV show.
Visitors can journey through Cosmic Curiosities, while discovering more about the time traveling Police Box in the TARDIS Tech room, learning about the science behind time travel and whether it is possible. Or visit the Monster Vault to get up close with some of the characters that have graced screens.
Tickets will be available for purchase to the public in October.
