'Doctor Who' 50th Anniversary Celebration Lands at Heathrow Airport


TARDIS at Heathrow


Here's hoping that most of the people flying out of Heathrow Airport in London, Engand for the next while are fans of 'Doctor Who.' 

As the 50th Anniversary of 'Doctor Who' approaches (the BBC series ran from 1963-89 and was later resurrected in 2005), the celebration of the series and its immense fanbase is already well underway. The latest addition to that celebration descended on Terminal 5 of Heathrow airport earlier today: passengers will now be treated to what BBC Worldwide referred to as "a variety of 'Doctor Who' themed experiences." 

Along with the presence of the Doctor's trusty TARDIS, pictured above, passengers will be treated to appearances by the Cybermen, photobooths that are TARDIS-themed, actual props and memorabiia from the history of the program, and something being called "augmented reality experiences." Surely sounds more interesting than standing in queue for hours at an immigration line. 

Terminal 5 will also be hosting special 'Doctor Who' themed performances from the London London Philharmonic OrchestraPhilharmonic Orchestra. You know a series has a massive fan-following when the London Philharmonic Orchestra itself is mobilized to help celebrate it. 

Today, the cast of 'Doctor Who' including outgoing Time Lord Matt Smith (who will be departing the series to make room for a new Doctor) and Jenna Coleman will join creator Stephan Moffat at Comic-Con in San Diego. Trans-Atlantic 'Doctor Who' celebrations are on now! 

Will you be lucky enough to get to check out the 'Doctor Who' exhibit at Heathrow?
