Doctor Who Up Close in the bay
K9 at the Doctor Who exhibition in Cardiff Bay

A exhibition celebrating the BBC's cult sci-fi TV series Doctor Who can be visited in Cardiff Bay.

Doctor Who Up Close at the Red Dragon Centre offers a behind-the-scenes look at the series produced by BBC Wales and partly filmed around south Wales.

On display are models of key characters such as the Daleks and K9, plus special effects, costume design and more.

The present exhibition space closes in March 2011 but will be replaced by a larger attraction in Cardiff in 2012.

On entering, visitors are surrounded by a retrospective, outlining the 40-year history of the series and have the opportunity to view the previous incarnations of the Doctors.

The Doctor's arch enemies, the Daleks, can be seen in both their modern form and a unique example of their original 1960s design, as well as elements focusing on many other classic characters.

Explanatory graphics highlight the filming and production of Doctor Who in and around Cardiff and south Wales, together with comments from the production crew and location photographs.

Doctor Who Up Close is open 10am to 6.30pm daily (last entry 6.15pm) at the Red Dragon Centre, Cardiff Bay, CF10 4JY

Late openings during peak season, opening times subject to change without notice

Phone 029 2048 9257 for details of admission prices
