Doctor Who and Me

This exhibition celebrated the 50th anniversary of one of Britain’s most popular television programmes and explored fans’ devotion to Doctor Who.


Doctor Who first appeared on our screens on 23 November 1963. Today, the show has millions of viewers and fans around the world, has sparked amazing creativity and unrivalled devotion, and has become ingrained in our popular culture.

This exhibition celebrated what it means to be a Doctor Who fan, fans’ collections and art, and the passion that Doctor Who has generated—and regenerated—over the past half century.
