60 Years of Doctor Who to be celebrated at Portsmouth Comic Con

The longest-running science fiction TV series of all time is to be celebrated at Portsmouth Comic Con 2023 with a fascinating exhibition of replica props and costumes.

In the 60 years since Doctor Who hit our screens, the epic series has achieved cult status and been lauded as the most successful science-fiction series of all time based on broadcast ratings, DVD and book sales and iTunes traffic.    

Whovians and fans of the Time Lord can expect an extraterrestrial experience at Portsmouth Comic Con as they enter through the Tardis to a time altering universe and display of daleks, davros, monsters and more! 

Become a member of UNIT and see screen accurate costumes of each of the doctors, their companions and a selection of baddies encountered on their time travels including a sea devil, cyberman and torchwood weevil. Don’t blink or the Weeping Angel will get you!
