Madame Tussauds Blackpool has launched an out of this world new Doctor Who area, including a wax figure replica of the Thirteenth Doctor. The Thirteenth Doctor and the TARDIS set up home in an immersive new area at the attraction, which will give visitors the opportunity to experience many aspects of the world-famous television programme. The new area takes inspiration from the TV series that has entertained generations since 1963 and is the ultimate Doctor Who fan’s dream, featuring plenty of photo opportunities.
Venture into the forest and search for the Doctor’s trusty sonic screwdriver, before coming face to face with the Doctor and the TARDIS, the very prop used onscreen throughout Series 11. Each detail of the Doctor’s signature features has been replicated, with the wax figure’s costume commissioned by Doctor Who costume designer Ray Holman. The outfit includes the Doctor’s long coat, rainbow t-shirt, striped socks and signature braces.
BlueBox designed and commissioned the bespoke audio, lighting, video and show control for this project. BlueBox Director Mike Ross said “As a long time fan of Doctor Who, it was my dream to call the TARDIS my office for a few months, every time we tested the programming I was grinning ear to ear”
