Description:  DVD documentary looking at the Doctor Who exhibition at The Museum of Classic Sci-Fi in Northumberland.

Cover blurb:
IN THE EARLY 1970s, the BBC decided to launch a series of exhibitions featuring monsters and props from DOCTOR WHO.

Over the next three decades, untold thousands of children (and adults too!) were thrilled by a mix of innovative, exciting and stunning extravaganzas!

For many fans, these exhibitions were their first and only real chance to get close-up to their favourite TV programme... and the memories they share in this innovative documentary series are bound together by interviews with experts and people who actually worked at them!

Here’s your chance to experience the DOCTOR ON DISPLAY!

The Museum of Classic Sci-Fi is, in many ways, a personal tribute by NEIL COLE to the halcyon days of science fiction on film and TV. Built in his basement under a Georgian house in the sleepy village of Allendale in Northumberland, it’s an unlikely home for one of the most incredible modern-day exhibitions of DOCTOR WHO props and monsters — many of which came from older exhibitions and had been saved from destruction! The museum re-opened in 2021 after extensive restoration work and we tell the story of that opening... and the incredible journey that led to that memorable day!
