Are you a Whovian who has been anxiously waiting for news on whether or not the Doctor Who Experience will reopen? Well hold on to your Sonic Screwdrivers, because we have some updates that will leave you feeling like a TARDIS in warp drive.
A Brief History of The Doctor Who Experience
Before jumping into what may happen with the future of The Doctor Who Experience, let’s take a step back and examine its past.
The Doctor Who Experience was an interactive attraction located at Porth Teigr in Cardiff Bay, Wales. It opened in 2012 and allowed visitors to walk through years’ worth of Time Lord history – from classic Doctors all the way up to Peter Capaldi’s incarnation.
Fans could see costumes worn by everyone from Tom Baker to Matt Smith and even experience what it would be like flying with the Eleventh doctor through space (okay, not really).
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances (and ominous cracks in time) The Doctor Who Experience closed its doors in September 2017 – leaving many fans wondering if they’d ever get another chance to get up close and personal with their favorite sci-fi universe.
Rumors about reopening & current status
Since its closing three years ago, rumors have circulated about possible re-openings – especially after BBC Worldwide proclaimed interest several times over.
But so far these rumors haven’t materialized.
One reason cited being financial concerns as well as other factors such as location availability issues; It appears there are legitimate challenges that make reopening more complicated than hoped for – but might this change soon enough?
In November 2020 however ‘credit must go where credit is due, new activity appeared around the area: Preparatory works began nearby towards making useful a previously derelict site near Mermaid Quay which creates excitement among local businesses who craved regeneration around the area. This is certainly a step forward towards reminding BBC Worldwide of what they had in place and hopefully pave the way for reopening.
Potential New Locations
While The Doctor Who Experience originally opened its doors at Cardiff Bay, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll return to its roots.
There are rumblings that either London or Manchester could become the new home for the exhibit – with several venues reportedly showing interest already – we can only guess if discussions between these locations have taken place yet.
What might Reopening Look Like?
It’s difficult to predict what form reopening will take as no official statements have been made from BBC Worldwide thus far. However, given exciting developments around Porth Teigr, plans may be underway sooner rather than later – like a sonic boom through time and space.
One important factor remains: Given this year’s pandemic guidelines however reopening may look very different to how it once was (should it happen) from social distancing measures which might affect queue wait times within premises, the amount of visitors allowed on site or limiting interactive activities per visitor,
On top of this ‘The Timeless Children’ certainly has shown us all unexpected timelines we thought were never possible: one minute full fan festivals with actors Q&As across continents… next thing you know everyone’s international lockdown abruptly reintroduced those possibilities via online streams! so who knows what solutions unfold!
But nothing can kill our optimism taking note into account past fundraising campaigns done worldwide by Whovians such as ‘Project MotorHouse’ #SaveTheDWE), there is hope still out there – though everything depends on reception by current media partners/consultants lurking around regenerated Mermaid Quay revitalisation plan. they might even surprise us giving VIP tours weekly showcasing items seen in episodes,, customised props never before exposed…fans get ready!!
Let’s Keep Our Fingers Crossed
In conclusion while waiting for progress updates, avid Whovians worldwide are still buzzed and hopeful for the attraction’s return.
The Doctor Who Experience is a beloved part of nerdom, providing immersive And tangible experience into everything timey-wimey – we’re all waiting with bated breath to hear what comes next! In our head the TARDIS never stays closed for long, so it’s only a matter of time (and space) until this exhibit reappears on our radar once again.
And who knows what will happen when it does! Perhaps we’ll all get to travel through a real-life time vortex, or maybe even run from Daleks ourselves supported by Android versions of Twelfth Doctors sonic specs forged in Gallifreyan diamond reinforced carbon fiber, either way let’s hope…Allons-y!
- The Doctor Who Experience opened its doors in Cardiff Bay in 2012 allowing fans to enjoy close-up interaction with many classic doctors.
- It has since been closed down due mostly to financial reasons
- Due to fan popularity there have been continued rumors about reopening plans

- While reopening plans remain uncertain at this point, several factors suggest that things might move forward soon enough.
- Where reopened Exhibit would take place still remains up for debate amongst different cities/showcases interested.
Everything considered potential limited restrictions owing from Covid19 impacts falls behind actual schematics required upon full development but more original features as seen such as customized visitor props can’t just be wished hard but need feasibility studies beyond present Government rules involving travelling timelines spanning possible lock-ins,So let’s just wait (patiently) for these good news together; if nothing else happens…We’ll always Have Netflix!!
