Matt Smith is
the first Doctor to be immortalised in this way, while the fingers of the
show’s Lead Writer will also be set in stone.
The casts were in addition
to the unveiling of several new exhibits of the most iconic monsters and props
from the recently broadcast series including the dress worn by new companion
actress Jenna-Louise Coleman (Oswin’s
dress and boots from Asylum of the
Daleks), Grayle’s Chained Weeping
Angel and The Cherub Angels (The Angels Take Manhattan) and
the Robots and costumes of Solomon and Nefertiti (Dinosaurs on a
Spaceship).
Matt Smith says, “It’s
fantastic that the Doctor Who Experience has been given its very own
purpose-built home here next to the studios and it feels like a bit of a
spiritual home for Doctor Who. It’s been great fun unveiling some of the
Doctor’s most fearsome adversaries from Series 7 and with the Christmas special
and more episodes next year, there’ll be plenty more props to come down the
line”.
On
his hand-cast: “I’m honoured to have made
my own little piece of Doctor Who history today. It’s a show with so much
tradition over nearly 50 years, so to be the first Doctor to take part in
something like this is really special”.
Steven Moffat says: “I’m very
excited and honoured to have my hands preserved forever. And quite relieved they
came back out of the cement! I now know, for all my future crimes, that my
fingerprints are readily and permanently available.”
The Doctor Who Experience is
the only interactive Doctor Who attraction in the world. It welcomed over
230,000 visitors during a one-year stay at London’s Olympia before moving to
Cardiff in July 2012. Since opening in July, over 40,000 fans have passed
through the TARDIS doors and taken part in their very own Doctor Who adventure.
