Doctor Who thing: the UK’s National Space Centre’s “Science of the Timelords” day
The National Space Centre in Leicester will be hosting “Science of the Timelords” on November 16:
Celebrate 50 amazing years with a look at the science behind Doctor Who – we’ll be looking at Time Trave, Teleportation, Regeneration, Robots, Space Travel and providing you with all the information you’ll need to stop the next alien invasion over Cardiff on Christmas Day!
Can I regenerate?
Will we ever travel through time?
How does the Sonic Screwdriver work?
These are just some of the questions you’ve been asking us as we celebrate and amazing 50 years of Doctor Who on television.
When Doctor Who started in 1963, it was planned as a semi educational science fiction series, but it always generated more questions than it answered.
I hope they let the kids down easy, because the answers to those questions are “No,” “Probably not,” and “It’s just a prop.”
But I’m sure it will be a fun day, especially since former companions Sophie “Ace” Aldred, Nicola “Peri” Brown, Louise “Leela” Jameson, and Frazer “Jamie” Hines will also be on hand, as well as Nicolas Briggs, who does the voices of Daleks and Cybermen on the current show.
