Dr Who is part of British culture now and throughout the years, the program has thrilled generations. The beloved Time Lord is nameless and we are not even allowed to know his real name, yet we watch his adventures through space and time. Sounds like Second Life Avatars to me?
How appropriate it is then that people in Second Life relate to Dr Who so much, with many of them taking on Dr Who personas. The thriving community of Dr Who fans in Second Life look forward to next year when all the creations created for the anniversary of its birth will appear.
As a forerunner to next year and a teaser of what’s to come, Pipa Novelli of Novelli Noir has been kind enough to provide us with a Dr Who Expo which showcases Dr Who over the years. It also provides us with a great party area !!
I hope you love the Dr Who Expo as much as I do and that it gives you an appetite for the grander events next year.
Facts About Dr Who
The Doctor’s space/time travel machine, the TARDIS, is oddly disguised as a British police box on the outside due to a malfunction of the ‘chameleon circuit’.
Inside the TARDIS is a vast number of rooms and corridors, where the console room taking centre stage.
The TARDIS console has changed many times over the years and possesses telepathic circuits which The Doctor prefers not to use, instead he prefers to fly manually.
When ‘The Doctor’ travels, he typically has a companion with who he shares his experiences and usually gets into trouble. The Doctor then has to rescue them. The Doctor’s adversaries have included scary cyborgs like the Daleks, the Cybermen and The Master.
The Dr Who Expo
The Dr Who Expo in Hyde Park shows you all these things, it contains different rooms and gives you a range of experiences throughout the whole of Dr Who’s 50 years. It includes a reconstructed Dr Who TV studio and various consoles over time. If you explore further afield, you will find a wandering Dalek called Derek.
