Doctor Who Experience 2012 Merchandise

Doctor Who Experience 2012 Merchandise

The Doctor Who experience is now open in Cardiff. Part of the “merchandise” ticket price includes various items including t shirts and souvenirs.

The Shop has the usual Doctor Who items along with some exclusive T shirts, mugs and Phone covers.

The Souvenir brochure: Like the previous London version this is a very high quality brochure. Includes articles on the restoration of props, the Doctors Costumes and a brief history of the Doctors themselves. This also includes some 3D images for which glasses are supplied.

In the Exhibition itself is a machine which will turn a penny (which you supply) into a stamped metal plaque…

The T Shirt supplied, there are many different versions on sale in the shop…

The compulsory carrier bag…

    I contacted Andrew Walker (Event Retail & Merchandise Manager) at the Cardiff Experience. He says their Online Website will “..offer Merchandise & is under development & will be ready by Christmas” he also says they “..have discussed a proposal with to put some of the Merchandise online which should be taking place over August”

    So those that can’t get to the Experience should have some chance of getting Merchandise (Maybe even an Exclusive Figure?) Online?

    Thanks for the look at the merchandise! Is that the shirt that comes with the merch ticket, or do you get to pick from a selection of shirts?

    Sorry if it’s already been asked, but is the programme different to the one from London?

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2012 - 11:03am

      its the same apart from a few new clips at the beginning, the walk through is identical though


    July 22nd, 2012 - 5:29pm

    • booboo

      July 22nd, 2012 - 5:57pm

    I went to the doctor who experience in London, and i have to say, it was amazing, especialy flying the TARDIS. wish i could have gone to the Cardiff one.


    July 21st, 2012 - 7:52pm

    I went to the experience today. I bought the character building silence spaceship and a t shirt. The penny is amazing aswell. At the entrance a silent was wandering around. It was a great day.

    P.S. Does anyone know where you get that certificate thing? Thx

    • booboo

      July 21st, 2012 - 7:53pm

    • andrew

      July 22nd, 2012 - 2:44am

      I never asked, was there an exclusive?

    • booboo

      July 22nd, 2012 - 9:25am

      no nothing at all


      July 23rd, 2012 - 2:59pm

      At the time when I went they were not very big. It took about five minutes until we were in. I thought it would be bigger

    • booboo

      July 23rd, 2012 - 3:00pm

      some people were over an hour on Friday

      When I went to the experience on the first day it opened I asked the guy behind the counter if there will be any exclusives and he said . . .
      there will be a Rory 5inch coming to the store at the end of August!!! WOOHOO!!

    • booboo

      August 5th, 2012 - 11:16am

      we will ask them an try to find out but i would expect they want to announce it officially

    • Anonymous

      August 5th, 2012 - 1:29pm

      No doubt it would be to coincide with the new series starting.

  • Dr who who

    July 21st, 2012 - 4:11pm

    Booboo do you know what new things are on display

    • booboo

      July 21st, 2012 - 4:23pm

      it depends on when you went to London as new things were added there

      but it was mainly the silent ship, the Doctors cot, Bessie and a few props

    • Dr who who

      July 21st, 2012 - 4:27pm

      Yes I did go to London one, the experience said they had the sonic cane, also is there all the same stuff from London is some things missing from it.

    • booboo

      July 21st, 2012 - 4:29pm

      some stuff id not there, Vashda, sycorax proabaly some more


    July 21st, 2012 - 3:20pm

    I love that coin.

  • McGann is The Doctor.

    July 21st, 2012 - 1:53pm

    I wonder if they’ll ahve a new version of the show, when Amy and Rory are out of it, maybe they will get Matt Smith to re-film it.

    Then again, he is a timetraveller so it won’t HAVE to feature the current companion of the time. 😉

  • PanDoricus

    July 21st, 2012 - 1:50pm

    Shame there is no exclusive action figure this time round.

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      July 21st, 2012 - 1:52pm

      There might be. The last one came out a few months after the London Experience opened. 🙂

    I think i will go next year as i have been to the london one twice, and most recent the doctor who convention in wales. Atleast i will see the series 7 monsters.

    Plus the merchandise is all the same. and they seem to have not decided whether to use the new look logo or the previous. It just seems a bit odd to me thats all. Anyway banting aside still love the coin!!!! 🙂

    its the same signature as dwa!

    • pupbenny

      July 21st, 2012 - 11:10am

      I think they got it from Doctor Who, so they would be the same. 🙂

    • The Other

      July 21st, 2012 - 12:14pm

      The signature isn’t from DWA it’s from DWW (Doctor Who Weekly).

  • dalek thay

    July 21st, 2012 - 8:23am

    Just seen a vid on YouTube of some one who went yesterday, and there is no Vasta nerada, pig slave, Sycorax, Gas mask zombies…These were all here before so where have they gone?

    Hopefully they will be adding them soon, but it’s not fair on the people who baught the tickets in advance for the 1st day.

  • Give me a Dalek any day

    July 21st, 2012 - 6:41am

    Looks quite good. The penny into stamped metal plaque looks nice. 😉

    Hopefully it won’t be long until they put the merchandise up on their own site (and hopefully for sale as well).

    Wow! I need to bribe someone in the UK to get me the brochure and a penny!

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2012 - 11:02pm

      the penny thing is great, i wonder if a lot of people missed the machine that makes them!

    July 20th, 2012 - 10:57pm

    Booboo, apart from the series 6 monsters, was there any new additions to the exhibition?

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2012 - 11:00pm

      There were a lot of new small props but nothing much else, the silent ship was great and there was a lot there we hadn’t seen before which was added in London after we went originally , they will continuously add stuff from series 7 no doubt.

      There were lot of people today and lot of queuing for some but the monsters were keeping people entertained.

  • gabrielwho

    July 20th, 2012 - 10:52pm

    Went today & it was the best £9 I’ve ever spent! The merch was disappointing though – no new figures or exclusives but knowing my luck they’ll be released tomorrow! 😉

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2012 - 10:53pm

      yes i know, what time were you in?

    • gabrielwho

      July 20th, 2012 - 11:47pm

      Our slot was 2-3:30 but we didn’t get in till 3:15 but it was still amazing queued for 1hr 30 min but worth the wait 😀
