Doctor Who Experience to host special Cybermen event

Tomorrow, Saturday 22nd July, will see the Doctor Who Experience host a special event exploring the world of one of the Doctor's oldest foes, the Cybermen.

Expert prosthetic artists Millennium FX will be on hand throughout the day, running workshops and talking about the creation of the Cybermen seen in Doctor Who. Fans who pre-purchased the special Cyber upgrade ahead of the event will also experience being converted into Cybermen courtesy of Millennium FX.

Special screenings will also be held throughout the day of the Doctor Who Series 10 two-part finale. World Enough and Time and The Doctor Falls see a host of Cybermen face off against Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor, and feature the return of the Mondasian Cybermen after over 50 years.

Other activities during Saturday's event include a green screen photo opportunity featuring the Cybermen and the Experience's very first Facebook Live hosted by Doctor Who: The Fan Show's Luke Spillane, whilst fans are advised to keep their wits about them as some of the Cybermen come to life...

The timetable for the day is as follows (subject to change):

11.30am - 12pm: Millennium FX workshop and Q&A
12pm - 12.45pm: Series 10 Ep 11 screening
12pm - 12.20pm: Facebook Live with Luke Spillane

To allow visitors to make the most of their day, the Experience will be allowing re-admission into the Cybermen event provided that attendees keep hold of their tickets throughout the day.

Although tickets will be available on the day, visitors to tomorrow's event are advised to book in advance to avoid disappointment through the Experience's official site. The Millennium FX Cyber conversions were on sale in advance of the event and have now sold out.

Tomorrow's special Cyberman day is part of the Doctor Who Experience's final summer programme of events before the Cardiff attraction closes on 9th September 2017. More news on the rest of the Experience's events, as well as ticket booking and information, is available at doctorwhoexperience.com.
