Doctor Who at Heathrow!

Surprises for travellers as Doctor Who comes to life at the UK’s busiest airport in the lead up to the show’s 50th Anniversary!


BBC Worldwide has teamed up with Heathrow to celebrate the longest running TV sci-fi series in the world, Doctor Who. From today, passengers travelling through Heathrow will be treated to a variety of exciting Doctor Who themed experiences including: appearances from the famous Cybermen, TARDIS photobooths, genuine props and memorabilia, and augmented reality experiences.

To mark the launch of the partnership, on July 16th travellers through Terminal 5 will be able to enjoy special performances by the London Philharmonic Orchestra of music from the iconic BBC Wales produced series.  In addition, Doctor Who novelist Jenny Colgan, author of the recently released Dark Horizons will also be signing books for fans on the day.

The Heathrow activity comes as BBC Worldwide celebrates Doctor Who internationally ahead of the show’s 50th Anniversary in November. Steven Moffat, current showrunner, said: “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.”

Thanks to BBC Worldwide
