The Doctor Who Experience will reopen it’s doors on Friday 24 October 2014 with a brand new mini episode featuring Peter Capaldi and the voice of Lalla Ward, who played the second Romana in the classic series.

The Doctor Who Experience has been closed since the end of summer to allow the attraction to be updated with new props and sets as well as a newly scripted storyline written by Joseph Lidster and directed by Paul Wilmshurst. The piece will allow fans to star in their very own mini episode of Doctor Who, described as “beginning in the Gallifrey Museum and journeying to the heart of the TARDIS, while grappling with a threat which could destroy the universe.”

From 24 October to 30 November, the highly popular studio set visits to Roath Lock Studios will also be available for fans to purchase as an extra. During this time, around 6000 fans will be able to visit the enclosed Doctor Who set, and set foot on the TARDIS featured in the past two series and the 50th of the Doctor.

Stephen Davies, Director of Live Events and Entertainment at BBC Worldwide says:

“As with all of the best Doctor Who adventures, we’ve undergone our very own regeneration down at the Doctor Who Experience and we’re sure Doctor Who fans will be thrilled to take part in a brand new adventure with the Twelfth Doctor.”

Tickets are on general sale on Tuesday October 7 and can be purchased for dates on and after October 24, 2014. Tickets are available from and prices start from £14 for adults and £9.75 for children.
