Doctor Who Experience To Reopen With New Peter Capaldi Adventure

The Doctor Who Experience will reopen on Friday 24th October 2014 featuring a brand-new and exclusive adventure starring the Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi.

The award-winning attraction located in Wales' Cardiff Bay has been closed since the beginning of September, allowing for it to be updated with the newly-scripted mini episode written by Joseph Lidster (Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures) and directed by Doctor Who Series 8's Paul Wilmshurst (Kill The Moon, Mummy on the Orient Express).

The interactive adventure lets fans star in their very own episode of Doctor Who - beginning in the Gallifrey Museum and journeying to the heart of the TARDIS, visitors will have to grapple with a threat which could destroy the universe...



The exhibition hall will also be refreshed with new props from Peter Capaldi's debut series as well as sets and monsters from throughout the show's nearly 51-year history.

The relaunch of the Doctor Who Experience will also see the return of the attraction's popular TARDIS Tours, which will be available an an extra to general admission from 24th October to 30th November 2014. During this time around 6000 fans - filming permitting - will have the opportunity to set foot on the current TARDIS set housed at the nearby Roath Lock Studios, which has featured in the show since 2012's Christmas special The Snowmen and saw no fewer than three Doctors on board during 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor.

Stephen Davies, Director of Live Events and Entertainment at BBC Worldwide says:
"As with all of the best Doctor Who adventures, we've undergone our very own regeneration down at the Doctor Who Experience and we're sure Doctor Who fans will be thrilled to take part in a brand new adventure with the Twelfth Doctor."
Tickets for the Doctor Who Experience will go back on general sale from Tuesday 7th October for dates on and after Friday 24th October 2014, with prices starting from £14 for adults and £9.75 for children. Tickets will be available from doctorwhoexperience.com.
