Visitors will be able to find out how to develop the latest monster and explore Doctor Who sets and props. They will also have the chance to discover the inspiration behind the Doctor’s recent adversaries, the imagination required to create new worlds and the ingenuity that goes into designing and making the backdrops.

Peter Capaldi commented: “If having the world’s favourite Time Lord back on screen every week isn’t enough for you (and it’s not for me) then The Doctor Who Festival in London is the place to be. I’ll be heading there in November to join the fun and, if it’s anything like the 50th anniversary event, prepare yourself for total Time Lord mania.”
