If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Doctor Who in Dennistoun

Might be worth a trip to Duke Street (Dennistoun) if you are a ‘New’ Doctor Who fan (I’m not, the pre-publicity for the 2017 series was the last straw for me for various reasons, and this travesty of the classic series is now firmly off my list), and a collector of goodies.

While they’re not exactly giving the stuff away, it is on offer at charity shop prices, so there’s are bargains to be had for anyone serious.

I couldn’t get a decent pic, sorry, but the reflection of the footpath on the glass was pretty strong, even when I processed a lot of it away.

Raid the piggy-bank, and go…

Doctor Who at Kelvingrove

With plenty of warning, no-one should miss the opportunity to part with a few pieces of silver and visit the Doctor Who Exhibition to be staged in Glasgow’s showpiece Kelvingrove Museum next year, 2009.

The exhibition will open in March, and run to the end of the year.

At this stage, Culture and Sport Glasgow has announced only that a fee will be levied (entrance to all Glasgow museums is free), but has not yet indicated what this will be. Checking the current venues, the Adult ticket price is £9 while the Junior ticket is £7. Family books of 2 Adult and 2 Junior tickets are priced at £7 each, which I think means £28 in Plain English.

The exhibition will first visit various locations south of the border, such as London and Cardiff.

Kelvingrove is the ONLY Scottish venue planned for the exhibition.

I’m tempted to suggest putting the cash towards a day in Blackpool, where the original Doctor Who exhibition has featured for many years, before the ‘Young Pretenders’ took over, and the BBC finally decided to dust down the Doctor from the their ‘Best Reserve’ shelf of untapped financial resources. The original depended on a good yarn, and not an abundance of special effects, contrived storylines, and (shudders) ‘celebrity’ actors and guests.

Update as of February 2009:

Exhibition Start Date : Saturday 28 March 2009. End Date : Monday 04 January 2010

Tickets now available from or phone 08444 815 816.

Adults: £7.50 plus booking fee.

Concessions: £4.50 plus booking fee.

Family ticket: £18 plus booking fee.

Booking fee appears to be £1, but should be checked at time of purchase.
