Description

Doctor Who Tour

Come and enjoy a fantastic tour, learning everything you could possibly want to know about the world's favorite Doctor in his favorite city, London! An icon of British popular culture and a global cult television hit, we explore the legacy of the Doctor, alongside the succession of unforgettable companions, the foes they faced while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs in the Universe!

The character of the Doctor was initially shrouded in mystery. All that was known about him in the show's early days was that he was an eccentric alien traveller of great intelligence who battled injustice while exploring time and space in an unreliable time machine, the "TARDIS" (an acronym for time and relative dimension(s) in space), which notably appears much larger on the inside than on the outside (a quality referred to as "dimensional transcendentality")

A valid Travelcard/Oystercard is required to take part in the Doctor Who Tour as it involves public transport

Highlights of the Itinerary

• Learn all the fascinating facts about The Doctor and the many lives he has lived and saved.
• Visit the site where Earth was invaded for the first time at the hands for the Daleks.
• Hear about UNIT and Torchwood and where to find their headquarters in London.
• See where The Doctor met some of his companions including Donna Noble, Martha Jones & Rose Tyler.
• Get your picture taken outside the TARDIS.

Dr Who tour Review by carolsKent

I accompanied my 8year old grandson on this tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. I expected him to become bored after the first hour and I thought I would be happy to opt out along the way.
Tom, the guide, was inspiring and his enthusiasm for the subject touched us all. My grandson,along with other tour members, swapped recollections of past episodes whilst basking in Toms knowledge and joy in the subject matter.
I thought I would find 2.5hrs tedious and tiring but the time passed too quickly and the tube ride enabled me to sit for a while.
I am now about to watch the Christmas day episode on my computer as the tour has turned me into a Doctor fan..
Thank you Tom for making this occasion so special for us both.(Posted on 2/19/2016)
Enjoyed the Tour BUT BEWARE! Review by Maltrueno

Went on the Doctor Who tour yesterday and really enjoyed it. As I only started watching in 2008 I was glad that the tour is mostly about the new series from 2005 onwards. It was fun to learn how well known London Landmarks featured in the series, St Thomas's hospital taken to the moon, a giant scorpion running amok in Southwark Cathedral and so on. We even got shown the restaurant outside where Colin Firth and Hugh Grant had a fight for Bridget Jones which is somehow related to Doctor Who. Finally, the biggest moment was being shown to a TARDIS right outside a tube station I'd been using for my daily commute for about 5 years and never noticed it was there. If you are a fan, you need to do this.
Here comes the bad part now. I originally booked this for the week before. I arrived there 15 minutes earlier as asked and expected to see a guide gathering people. No one was there. In my panic, I circled the area for about 15 minutes, tried to call the company, hard to find their numbers, once you do you have an automated message which asks you to go to the website for help. In any case, I missed the tour. In the end after we exchanged a couple of emails they rebooked me for a week later. So I would suggest that in order to join the tour once you get to the meeting point you need to be shameless and ask people around you if they are there for the same reason. It's the only way to make sure that you don't get left behind.(Posted on 2/19/2016)
Doctor Who Walking Tour of London Review by Michael B

Brilliant. Great fun for Whovians of all ages. You don't need to be a nerd or geek to enjoy this - just be a fan of Doctor Who. You can dress up in your favourite Doctor Who t-shirt - but you don't have to. I met one young lady wearing a fabulous Capt. Jack greatcoat! The leaders, Alan & Tom, are very friendly and knowledgable. You will find out all sorts of interesting facts and information - and some will surprise you. The walk is not strenuous - but don't forget you will need a tube travel card / Oyster or similar. IMPORTANT TIP ... when you are waiting at the Monument it is not easy to spot the leaders - and they sometimes don't get there as early as you do - so look around for fellow Whovians (don't be afraid to ask people if they are waiting for the tour), The leaders will make themseleves know in good time, in a loud voice!(Posted on 2/19/2016)

DOCTOR WHO WALKING TOUR Review by MAGIC_MONKEY52
Your rating
Excellent walking tour. Shown around the various places that episodes of Doctor Who had been filmed. Tour leader Tom or the 'Australian guy' as he described himself was very knowledgeable about everything. Couldn't recommend doing this more highly to any Doctor Who fans. Just remember to pick a day when it's not raining. Fortunately the weather held out when we were all out and about walking. Apparently Hugh Grant was going to be the 9th Doctor but he turned it down. Evidently he's regretted that decision. I think it's the best one he made. Hugh Grant just doesn't have the stature as an actor to portray the Doctor.(Posted on 2/18/2016)
Doctor Who Tour Review by Pan5000

A Nice walk around central London which started at Monument and finished at the location of a real Police Box at Earls Court. There's also a couple of tube trips involved in this tour so be prepared with a topped up Oyster Card or travel card, etc. The tour was not only about Doctor Who. Real life historical facts about locations were also thrown in, making it even more interesting. The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable for the purpose of where we were taken. Hard Core Doctor Who fans, however, may find the locations visited and associated tales a bit over familiar, but still a great thing to do, especially on a nice sunny day. P.S I will no longer be able to walk across the Millennium Bridge without looking down at all the chewing gum turned into art, one of the many fun things pointed out to us along the way.(Posted on 2/18/2016)
