Included in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity are panel sessions with stars from five decades of space and time travel – and incredible behind-the-scenes information from the production team and crew who’ve been bringing the magic to our screens for fifty fabulous years.

It couldn’t be simpler – just select your entry group from the selection when booking your tickets.

Fancy blowing something up? Well you won’t be needing any Nitro-9 – SFX wizard Danny Hargreaves will be putting on a special show for all attendees, while the stunts team from the show will guide you through performing some stunts of your own!

If scaring your friends into hiding behind the sofa is more your style, The Doctor Who Experience will be presenting Walk Like a Monster workshops every day. Not scary enough for you? Well design your OWN monster with the artists and team from the official Doctor Who magazine, Doctor Who Adventures.

There’ll also be opportunities to hear from the cast and crew of the original run of Doctor Who, special quizzes, and a unique opportunity to get your hands on exclusive Celebration merchandise. Extra features are available via our TARDIS ticket – and if you choose to be upgraded, we promise it won’t be as uncomfortable as the kind the Cybermen are offering!

The event will take place November 22-24 at the ExCel Centre in East London. Tickets on sale at Doctor Who: Official 50th Celebration.

    I knew the BBC needed money, but this seems to be a bit excessive.

    Wasn’t it £100 a ticket for the big Cardiff convention a couple of years ago? £49 isn’t that bad – in fact it’s not much more than, say, Tenth Planet Events charges for a (usually very enjoyable) day in a school hall with guest stars from the classic series. I’ll be going on the Sunday, seeing as I’ll be in the UK, though it all sounds rather bland and corporate to me. Here’s hoping I’m wrong.

  • Is there a T-shirt with that picture on it somewhere?

  • I’m sure there will be. For £29.95.

    For a media con, sadly, that’s probably within the tolerances. The cast and crew have to be paid appearance fees, and the horrible concrete slab that is ExCel isn’t cheap to hire.
