[edit]

DOCTOR Who is heading to Glasgow - with the Tardis landing at Kelvingrove museum.

The largest-ever Doctor Who display in the UK, now on show at Earls Court in London, will fill the exhibition halls at Kelvingrove next year.

It will open in late March and will be in Glasgow until early 2010.

Organisers expect it to be one of the most popular shows staged at the museum, with bigger crowds than for the Kylie Minogue exhibition, which topped 165,000.

The display is likely to have even more monsters, costumes and other Doctor Who paraphernalia added to it from the new series of the BBC show, which starts tomorrow, and a likely Christmas special.

Visitors will get up close to props, costumes, monsters and creatures from the history of the TV series, which stars David Tennant as the Doctor and Catherine Tate as his assistant, Donna Noble.

The first episode of the new, fourth series opens with a battle against a weight loss company called Adipose, whose slimming pills are in fact a cover for a mini-invasion of tiny aliens who, while evil, are only six inches long.

The Adipose could also appear in the Kelvingrove exhibition, alongside the Tardis, the metallic cyber-dog K9, the Daleks, the Cybermen and many of the Doctor 's more recent enemies, including the Autons, Slitheen and Oods.

The Doctor Who exhibition was a welcome solution to a gap in Kelvingrove's exhibition calendar, caused by the move of its anticipated Glasgow Boys exhibition to 2010.

Originally, the Glasgow Boys exhibition was to be held in Glasgow in 2009, but that date has now been moved following an agreement with the Royal Academy in London.

Councillor Liz Cameron, chairwoman of Culture and Sport Glasgow, said: "Following on from the success of Kylie:

The Exhibition, and a refurbishment which exceed all expectations, I'm sure Doctor Who will inspire the next generation of visitors to Glasgow's museums.

"Our ambition to maintain Kelvingrove's position as Scotland's number one visitor attraction remains a priority as we enjoy unrivalled success.

"Because it is the only Scottish destination for the Doctor Who exhibition, we look forward to welcoming visitors from all over Scotland and beyond."
