OT: Doctor Who Exhibition at Coventry

I've been itching to visit the Doctor Who exhibition down in Cardiff and check out the Roald Dahl Plass where the "entrance" to Torchwood can be found. But daunted by the 3-4 hours travelling each way I decided a visit to the temporary exhibition at Coventry would be easier.

It contains many props from the revamped series including the telescope from Tooth and Claw, staples: TARDIS, K9, Cybermen and Daleks, plus many costumes, including Donna's wedding dress and outfits from Planet of the Dead. It took me about 30 - 40 minutes to go round and was £8. The best bits for me were the Cybermen and Daleks which actually moved and spoke and were quite scary!

Here are a few snaps...
