Cardiff International Comic Expo
The 2011 Cardiff ComicCon had a Doctor Who theme, inviting many writers and illustrators from the latest Doctor Who themed comics. We were happy to appear at the ComicCon with the Matt Smith style Police Box, helping to raise money for Help for Heroes.
The Tardis was booked for a village fete garden party near Wantage, Oxford – she was used as a meeting point for the villagers and many children were thrilled to see it hidden in the undergrowth.
Cardiff Torchwood Fan Event
The Police Box lands at the Cardiff Torchwood Fanbase event. The Norwegian Church Art Centre in Cardiff played host to the Fans of Torchwood. The Tardis was built inside the Norwegian Church Art Centre for the evenings entertainment. Many of the fans had their photos taken next the Police Box, she was a great talking point for the evening. Also present was Danny Hargreaves, the Special FX wiz from Doctor Who and Torchwood

Wedding – Vinopolis

Wedding – Durham
Dr Matthew Peacock and Boris the Dalek
“…It was a case of hurry along as newly-married Matt Peacock rushed his bride straight from their wedding to meet a Doctor Who lookalike at a shopping centre fun day. Dr Peacock, a lecturer in Roman history at Durham University, met a David Tennant lookalike, toured the Time Lord’s famous Police Box and met a Dalek called Boris the Exterminator at the Prince Bishops Shopping Centre, in Durham, yesterday – only minutes after marrying his fiancee, Linda, in a ceremony at Durham Castle…”

There was even a David Tennant Doctor Who lookalike to help the kids defeat Boris the Dalek
Langton Green Primary School
The pupils of Langton Green Primary School needed a Tardis and a Dalek to help them with their school science project based on Doctor Who. The children had created a story whereby the Doctor was missing and only his Tardis remained. Were the Daleks responsible?
“…As this was the first time we had gone about hiring a Tardis and Dalek for the school, we really didn’t know what to expect. How fortunate it was that we picked you! The entire process ran without a hitch and we really appreciated your excellent time keeping and professional manner. The Tardis and dalek themselves looked amazing and we were almost surprised by how sturdy they were and what good condition they were in. This really did contribute marvellously to the school’s curriculum – and the Tardis standing in the hall was greeted with amazement from parents and teachers alike. This enhanced our curriculum beyond expectations – so thank you – we shall have no hesitation in recommending you whenever we can…”
