A traveling road show dedicated to Doctor Who, one of the most popular shows on WOUB-WOUC, is coming to Athens on Saturday, May 30, and Sunday, May 31.

The Athens visit, to be held at the Athens Recreation Center on East State Street, is part of a 185-city, coast-to-coast 1987 Doctor Who Celebration and Tour.

The world's only "Experience Theater on Wheels," housed in a 48-foot trailer, will be open to the public from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

The mobile exhibition was built by the British Broadcasting Corp. in support of the television Doctor Who, which is seen in more than 185 markets in the United States. In its 24th season, Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction show in television history and is the most successful British export ever. The program is seen by more than 110 million viewers in 60 countries.

The exhibition features all the monsters and villains from the program. Set behind mirrored glass, the figures are brought to life through various lighting and special sound effects and animation. Also featured at the exhibition is "Bessie," a bright yellow vintage car which still runs perfectly despite her role in adventures which "saved the earth."

The exhibit also features videos and a special appearance from Janet Fielding, who plays Tegan, the Australian air stewardess and Doctor Who's occasional companion on the series.
