I've been AWOL for a while - some of our friends got married in the Coromandel so Rich and I have been away for a while. The Coromandel is quite a distance from Wellington and the weather is a whole lot better than here so we decided to stay for a few days. I will write a post about our beach adventures soon, but today I thought I'd share some photos of the Doctor Who exhibition we have happening in Wellington right now.
Fun fact - I've watch Doctor Who for pretty much as far back as I can remember! Episodes used to always show after school (just before the news) and I clearly remember watching the third, fourth and fifth doctor - but the fourth doctor was always and will always be my favourite.
I'm going to be straight up with you guys, I think the main reason I liked Dr Who so much growing up was the monsters. I do like monsters and creepy things a lot. I remember one of my friends once telling me he used to hide behind the couch whenever there were daleks on screen, I'm pretty sure I moved closer to the screen when the daleks and other associated monsters turned up.
I'm pretending to be scared by the cyber man - but its totally a lie - I freaking love cyber men!
The exhibition had quite a few costumes on display that were non-monster related (although as we have already established, monsters are the best part).
The fifth doctors hat and celery (I never really 'got' the whole thing with the celery!).
The costume that Kylie Minogue wore in the Christmas Episode she guest starred in (Kylie really is tiny!)
The fourth doctors scarf - my favourite!
The costumes of the tenth and eleventh doctors - bow ties are cool!
The exhibition also had a tardis - for reasons that should be obvious to everyone.
