It has been confirmed that the Doctor Who Experience will be closing its doors in 2017 when its five year sub-lease from the City of Cardiff Council comes to an end.

The attraction opened in the Welsh capital in 2012 following its acclaimed debut in London, becoming a permanent fixture just a stone’s throw away from where the series is filmed at Roath Lock Studios. It is home to an interactive adventure as well as an exhibition of the show’s costumes, sets, props and monsters, however it will all be dematerialising next summer after welcoming over 60,000 visitors.

Fans have responded to the news of its closure – which was “mutually agreed by all parties involved” – by launching an online petition urging the BBC to reconsider, which is almost at 6,000 signatures. The powers to be have yet to respond to rumours that the Experience, which was shortlisted for a National Tourism Award in 2013, will be relocated. Are you sad to hear the news? Have you been to the Experience, or have plans to visit? Let us know…

The Doctor Who Experience will be installing a temporary Torchwood exhibition to mark the show’s 10th anniversary later this month, it has been confirmed.

The spin off first aired on BBC Three on 22nd October 2006 (yes, nearly a whole decade ago!) and the Experience will be commemorating the landmark with a special display featuring an array of props and costumes from the show. In addition, the popular Filming Locations Tour – which has recently been extended until the end of October – will be adding some popular Torchwood stops as part of the celebrations.

Torchwood has been “in limbo” since 2011, surviving in the form of audio dramas and comics, however its star John Barrowman has recently teased its televisual comeback.

Special effects expert Mike Tucker will be discussing the restoration of Davros, while Millennium FX will be on hand to part-transform visitors into shape-shifting Zygons.
