Dr Who came to Wellington on 21st of February and launched the biennial New Zealand Festival with a bang! The arena was almost exploding with excitement, and, thanks to booking many months ago we got seats perfect to see and hear everything. The video is a wobbly camera snippet that gives a tiny flavour of the atmosphere from the superb show.
There were two kinds of fans, those who are new to the programme, and those whose memories go back to much further to Peter Davison and beyond! There was lots to see for both sets of fans – each music piece was accompanied by images and video from the series, and monsters took to the Arena (pictures next week!) Vintage Dr Who segments alternated with the latest regeneration and the War Doctor – Wow!
There were huge queues to buy precious Dr Who memorabilia including tshirts marked ‘Bigger on the Inside’ with Melbourne, Brisbane and Wellington printed on – a real collector’s item. The anticipation was immense and we saw people dressed up in their Dr Who best but no Daleks in the audience 🙂 Newspaper review here.
Next week – the excitement AND the Monsters And the Fifth Doctor in person! Below is a monster sneak peek!
