Doctor Who: Official 50th Anniversary Celebration
On Sunday 24th, I attended the last day of the official 50th celebration that was being held at the ExCel Center in London.
I had an Ice Warrior pass, which entitled me to see three shows throughout the day.
- SFX Show – this show was a talk with the Doctor Who Special Effects Supervisor, Danny Hargreaves. Within this show he showed the audience all kinds of effects from snow to fire and live exploding Daleks!
- Regenerations – This was a Q&A session with ‘the original’ Doctors, Colin Baker, Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy!
- The Eleventh Hour – This was another Q&A session with Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, Steven Moffat and Nick Hurran!
(The Eleventh Hour show on Sunday was the last Doctor Who panel in which Matt Smith would be taking part in- everybody felt emotional as Steven Moffat reminisced and said his farewell to Matt on stage!)
Here are some photographs that I took throughout the day:
There was plenty to see throughout the day and many mini-shows to catch, to keep us occupied. From authentic props from the set, getting your photograph taken in a previously-used-for-filming Tardis, spending money (a lot of it!) and peeking into Make-Up and Wardrobe trailers! A big thank you to the BBC for creating the event for the Doctor Who fans!
Now, it’s time to get excited about the Christmas Special…
Bow ties are cool!
