Monsters and villains from the new Dr Who series are on display at an exhibition opening in Brighton.

The props and models will be at the Dome on Brighton Pier from Saturday until November.

Anyone visiting the exhibition on its opening weekend is promised free entry if "dressed in a recognisable Doctor Who theme".

The exhibits include a life-size Tardis, the Moxx of Balhoon, the Slitheen and the Autons.

There are also displays of video clips and design drawings from the new series, which stars Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper.

The entrance archways are home to some classic creatures from the past and they are based on the Doctor Who 'time tunnel', which features in the show's opening titles.

The show's producer, Phil Collinson, is enthusiastic about the exhibition.

"It's a great family day out, it's a great chance for the family to experience this together, in the flesh really. So get down and have a look," he said.

Martin Wilkie, head of design for the exhibition, added: "We have been given unprecedented access by BBC Wales' production team to Doctor Who props, models, costumes and, most importantly, the monsters."
