10th December 2005 • Leicester
The Doctor Who - Up Close exhibition at Leicester’s National Space Centre was a good visit, despite it being only small. It was great to see props and costumes from Series One, as well as a new generation of Dalek loving kids firing questions at the Dalek Builders’ Guild invading Daleks!

It was nice to see The Doctor and Rose’s real costumes as well as a real Slitheen costume, Moxx of Balhoon and the impressive model of the damaged Big Ben clock tower. However my obvious personal highlights were of course, Dalek related. It was a nice surprise to get up close to the Emperor Dalek model, although I thought it might have been bigger, but even so, it was impressive. And it was good to see one of the new Daleks, although they look a lot more plastic in reality than they do on telly, but hey, that’s Doctor Who props for you!

All in all, a good exhibition, and a thrill to get up close to several major items from Series One.

Over the next two pages, you’ll find a selection of photographs I took at Doctor Who - Up Close, in Leicester.
