The Tardis is just one of the iconic objects that have materialised in Liverpool for a new Doctor Who exhibition.

Hosted by the city's World Museum, visitors are treated with the Doctor's arch enemies the Daleks, Cybermen and weeping Angels.

A host of stars narrate the exhibition including The League of Gentlemen's Mark Gatiss, who wrote episodes of the series, as well as actress Zoe Wanamaker and Sky at Night presenter Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock.

Catherine Johnson, from the National Museums Liverpool, said: "The exhibition spans the whole 60 years of Doctor Who and is just a fantastic array of props, costumes and objects, some of which haven’t been seen on display before.

"A lot of the storylines from the show were based on real science so there are inspirations from the natural world, from cybernetics, from AI and from astrophysics and there is a real depth to the show that is underpinned by science."

Visitors to the exhibition will get the chance to get hands on with the Tardis console, climb inside a Dalek and even speak with a Dalek's voice.

It also includes a Liverpool Connections section exploring Merseyside stars who have featured in the series – from John Bishop to Sir Ken Dodd – and learn about how The Beatles almost met the Daleks.

Catherine Johnson continues: "It has been really interesting watching people hone in on the things they remember from the show and being confronted by some of those monsters they used to hide behind the sofa from!

"You don’t necessarily have to be a huge Doctor Who fan to get things out of the exhibition. It’s a really fun experience and there’s something there for all curious minds."
