Neil has painstakingly preserved (and in some cases restored) these precious artefacts from classic 'Doctor Who' history. There are many unique exhibits including surviving, original monsters such as the 'Arctic Explorer' ‘Haemovore’ (‘The Curse of Fenric’ – 1989), ‘The Garm’ (‘Terminus’ – 1983) and an original ‘Cyber-man/scout’ and ‘Cryon’ from (‘Attack of the Cybermen’ - 1985). The collection also includes many fascinating smaller props and pieces, including: rare, original ‘Silurian’ costume parts (‘Doctor Who & the Silurians’-1970), the only remaining ‘Galsec rifle’ from Tom Baker’s second story (‘The Sontaran Experiment’ – 1975) and even actor Nabil Shaban’s head cowl for his role as the infamous ‘Sil’ displayed alongside his co-star Martin Jarvis' 'Governor' costume (‘Vengeance on Varos’ – 1985).
Presenting one of the largest collections of original, production made classic ‘Doctor Who’ artefacts. The galleries explore the original series of this British, science-fiction icon. The unique collection is arranged chronologically and progresses through the adventures of the first seven television Doctors. The displays have been carefully arranged to represent the different eras of the classic programme.
The intention of the museum's collection was always to construct a 'visual episode-guide' of the original classic run of 'Doctor Who'. Museum Curator/Creator & artist - Neil Cole, has steadly collected & curated original artefacts from the classic show over the last twenty years. His dream was always to create a permanent exhibition enabling fans access to these objects all year round. Individual stories from the classic series are each represented by an original prop, costume or prodcuction made object. In some cases, a story is represented by a published, original artwork by legendary 'Doctor Who' artist Andrew Skilleter. The work of the museum is ongoing...to find more artefacts to steadily peice together a unique visual narrative of this most remarkable series....and put them on display for all fans to share!
