A group of Cybermen were storming through London this morning to celebrate the launch of the Doctor Who Experience exhibition, which enables children to take control of the Doctor’s TARDIS and respond to the Doctor’s missions for them in a specially-built copy of the new TARDIS interior set.
The Cybermen recreated a very familiar scene from the Patrick Troughton story ‘The Invasion’, posing on the steps in front of St Paul’s Cathedral. The monsters then travelled to the London Underground, where many morning commuters kept their distance from the sinister cyborgs.
Executive producer Steven Moffat said: “The Doctor Who Experience is a fan's dream come true - a fully interactive adventure that will allow viewers of the show to get as close as possible to some of the scariest monsters from the series. It will also be the first time that Doctor Who artefacts from all the show’s 47-year history will be on display together, many of them being seen for the first time.”
