BBC Worldwide has teamed up with London Heathrow to celebrate the longest-running television sci-fi series, Doctor Who. From today (July 16), the airport’s passengers will be treated to a variety of exciting Doctor Who experiences, including appearances from Cybermen, TARDIS photobooths, genuine props and memorabilia and augmented reality experience from the British series.
Terminal 5 passengers will today enjoy special performances by the London Philharmonic Orchestra from the series. In addition, Doctor Who novelist Jenny Colgan will be signing books.
The activities come as BBC Worldwide celebrates Doctor Who internationally ahead of the show’s 50th anniversary in November.
Showrunner Steven Moffat commented: “We are delighted to announce another extension to Heathrow’s world-beating facilities – all of space and time in a stylish blue box, complete with phone. Heathrow with time travel – nobody need ever be late again.”
