Doctor Who exhibition lands in Wellington: Where science meets fiction

Doctor Who exhibition Wellington news

From Daleks and Weeping Angels to various sonic screwdrivers, the world of Doctor Who has materialised in Wellington with the exhibition Doctor Who Worlds of Wonders: Where Science Meets Fiction.

The highly anticipated showcase is now open at the Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre, marking its first appearance outside the UK.

Previously exhibited at the World Museum Liverpool and the National Museum of Scotland, Doctor Who Worlds of Wonders explores the science behind the iconic sci-fi series while introducing visitors to its memorable characters since its inception in 1963.

Created in collaboration with BBC Studios, the exhibition has enlisted numerous advisors on a wide range of scientific topics, including time travel, black holes, AI, and cloning. This deep dive into the scientific questions posed by the series highlights the show’s relevance in an era increasingly dominated by technology and AI.

Visitors can engage with the show’s scientific concepts, such as the TARDIS’s famously deceptive exterior, which is significantly larger on the inside.

One of the exhibition’s highlights is the Monster Vault, where fans can come face to face with the Doctor’s alien adversaries and discover their connections to real-world science. From the 1980s Doctor Peter Davison’s robot companion Kamelion to Lady Cassandra, a character transformed by plastic surgery into what is humorously described as “a bitchy trampoline,” there is no shortage of fascinating characters and creatures to explore.

The exhibition coincides with the latest series of Doctor Who streaming on Disney Plus, featuring Ncuti Gatwa as the new Doctor and Millie Gibson as his companion, Ruby Sunday.

Doctor Who Worlds of Wonders runs for five months, from June 1, 2024, offering fans and curious minds alike a chance to dive deep into the intertwining worlds of science and fiction at Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre.

  1. Sadly the last two doctors have killed the Franchise. The most resent doctor wants to dance around in skirts and twerk the monsters to death, more likely they will die from laughter or embarrassment if anything.

    • Correct, it should be renamed to Dr-Why-bother.

      Woke political garbage. It’ll give you eye cancer.
