The Doctor Who Experience – home to the biggest official collection of Doctor Who props, costumes and sets in the world – celebrates the latest new arrival at the multisensory attraction in Cardiff Bay.
The replica original TARDIS console which will feature in the much-awaited BBC drama focusing on the genesis of Doctor Who – An Adventure in Space and Time – is on display from today in the mezzanine section of the building.

The console was originally designed in 1963 by BBC designer Peter Brachaki (with valuable input from Barry Newberry) and was piloted by the first Doctor as portrayed by William Hartnell. It soon became a design icon and set a basic template which can still be seen in TARDIS console designs to this day.

The TARDIS console, which will be piloted by David Bradley who will portray the first Doctor in An Adventure in Space and Time, was displayed at Comic-Con Paris in July 2013. It will be on display to all visitors at the Experience throughout the summer. Tickets for the Doctor Who Experience can be booked at and prices start from just £13 for an adult and £9 for children. You can watch a behind the scenes video of the TARDIS being assembled below…
