Tucked away in a room near where the SFX Demo took place was a cut-down version of the exhibition, last seen as part of the Doctor Who Experience at Olympia.
The experience had close in late February 2012, and is due to reopen at a purpose-built venue in Cardiff Bay later this summer.
Here is what was on show.
The first thing you could see was the Matt Smith TARDIS, flanked by his series five costume (without the creepy head) along with the David Tennant and Christopher Ecceslton.
Next to them stood The Silence, Davros and a Cybershade with a Cyberman on each side.
On show were Rory from The Hungry Earth; Any Pond’s outfit from Victory Of The Daleks; River Song’s dress from The Time Of Angels; Donna Nobel’s trademark brown leather coat; Martha Jones’ iconic burgundy leather jacket outfit; Captain Jack Harkness; Rose Tyler from Stolen Earth; and Sarah Jane Smith from School Reunion.
Coming back round to the Matt Smith TARDIS, the line up was completed with K-9 from School Reunion.
Some were stand-alone displays; other small tablous from specific episodes.
On display were a scarecrow from Human Nature; a pitman from Evolution Of The Daleks; the Hoix from Love And Monsters; as well as groups from Fires Of Pompeii and The Beast Below.
Elsewhere were a space suit from The Silence In The Library; a Hath from The Doctor’s Daughter; a Heavenly Host and Life Support Chariot from Voyage Of The Damned.
There were also the display cases of sonic screwdriver and weapons, but they are so badly lit and were positioned right by the door, it was impossible to get decent photos.
I know space was limited and not everything could be displayed, but I was surprised by the lack of proper Daleks on show.
Especially since they were not around the rest of the convention. I was expecting one or two to be outside to entertain the queues. Nothing. I wondered if they would be in the lobby to scare people as they came in. Nothing.
the only Dalek I saw was a walk-on during the SFX demo. Blink and you’d miss it.
In fact I did, and didn’t get a photo!
Bring back the Daleks!!!
