Matt and Steven cement their place in Who history
Last Friday, they paid their first visit to the attraction’s new and permanent home in Cardiff Bay following its launch in the summer. There they made history by creating cemented prints of their hands before unveiling new exhibitions, which include boots and a dress – as worn by the new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman, and Matt said he felt “honoured” to have conserved his place in the show’s mythology.
He continued: “To be the first Doctor to take part in something like this is really special.”
“I am very excited and to have my hands preserved forever, and I’m quite relieved they came back out of the cement!,” showrunner Steven added. “I now know, for all my future crimes, that my fingerprints are readily and permanently available here…”
The new Experience, which has welcomed over 40,000 fans since its move from London to South Wales, is located a stone’s throw away from where the series is now filmed at Roath Lock and Matt described the city’s Bay area as “a spiritual home” for Doctor Who.
