Doctor Who Attractions for Fans to Visit

Big news was revealed on BBC One last night, as Zoe Ball gave word during a TV special that actor Peter Capaldi, perhaps best known for appearing in political sitcom 'The Thick of It', is going to take on the role of the Doctor in 'Doctor Who'.

It comes after Matt Smith, the current Doctor, announced that he would be departing the programme.

Smith will appear in two forthcoming episodes of the show, a special edition marking its 50th birthday and a Christmas episode.

Fans waiting for these episodes may want to have a Doctor Who themed day trip, and if they're having short breaks in or near either Cardiff or Bradford, they've got great options when it comes to Doctor Who themed attractions.

In Cardiff, where the programme is made, the Doctor Who Experience is a permanent attraction which is all about Doctor Who and includes interactive elements and many exhibits from the programme.

Meanwhile, Bradford's National Media Museum says that it is planning to display an exhibition called '50 Years of Doctor Who Fans' starting November 12th.
