A very exciting day – I went to the Dr Who Experience!
The first part of the experience is queuing – first to get in, then again to go in to the main part of the exhibition.
No photos in the experience itself -so what do you get for your £20?
– a room done up like Starship UK
– Matt Smith guiding you through the whole thing – the script is quite funny
– The Tardis control room with hydraulic floor movement
-the flight deck of a Dalek ship. This is the most convincing because the animatronic Daleks look realistic
– A short 3D video of the time vortex
It would be better for children. Then you get a lot of costumes and monsters.
You could date people by which costume the went to.
Then you get to go to the gift shop. Unfortunately I had no room for a life-size cardboard cutout Tardis.
I headed to Camden Market (since apparently Portobello has ‘nothing’ in it, according to a Serbian woman who was also staying at my homestay.
It really is alternative, unlike the watered-down type things we have in NZ. The vintage shops were hit and miss – some just had things imported from the US, but others had full-on pink paisley minidresses. I bought a schmancy uber-cool shirt for £20.
