Doctor Who Materialises at the ABC to Celebrate 50 Years of Adventures in Space and Time
The ABC and BBC Worldwide ANZ join forces to celebrate 50 Years of Doctor Who with a special Commemorative Exhibition to be held at the ABC Ultimo Centre, Sydney. This free event is open to the public from August until January 2014.
Doctor Who, currently celebrating its 50th year, is watched by almost 80 million viewers in Australia, UK and the US and has been distributed to 206 territories. It has been honoured by The Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest running science-fiction series. Over the course of the show’s 50 year history there have been Eleven Doctors (with Peter Capaldi recently announced as the Twelfth Doctor), numerous companions and loads of memorable monsters to vanquish!
The series comes to life in the ABC Atrium with a display of props from the show including the Tenth Doctor’s costume as played by David Tennant as well as Kylie Minogue’s costume from Voyage of the Damned.
Also on display will be an Ood head, Cybermat, Tom Baker’s scarf, an original Dalek, an iconic TARDIS (which fans will be able to have their photo taken with) and much more.
‘The ABC has been the home of Doctor Who in Australia for all of its record-breaking 50 year history. I am delighted to be partnering again as we offer fans a chance to celebrate this important anniversary and to experience some of the wonderful history of this iconic and classic - BBC series,’ said Jon Penn, Managing Director, BBC Worldwide ANZ.
ABC Managing Director, Mark Scott said ‘I believe that in the long history of the ABC, there has only ever been one program for which we believed the Australian rights must cover all time and space dimensions—and that is the magnificent Doctor Who. We are delighted to be able to celebrate both its past and its endlessly fascinating future.’
All the ABC Shops and Shop Online www.abcshop.com.au will have a wide selection and some exclusive items of  Doctor Who souvenir merchandise and collectables. For more Doctor Who Exhibition details
