|Leela-My favorite assistant as a child|
I was particularly fond of his assistant Leela. Leela was a warrior of the savage Saveteen tribe and she was always in animal skins with a knife in her hand. She seemed impossibly tough and beautiful and I remember on a day trip to London with my parents (who would regularly visit the capital to buy punk clothes from Sededitionaries and Hyper Hyper in the seventies ) buying a doll of her (which even then I thought was a poor representation of her and looking back at it now it was truly awful)

|The Time Travelers Wife|
Introducing my daughter to Doctor Who has been amazing. Her doctor is Matt Smith or "the raggedy man" and her favourite companion Amy Pond.
People talks about certain TV shows bringing the family together and for us that has always been Doctor Who. Christmas day is totally dictated by when the special is on (heck we even had a Doctor Who Tardis blue Christmas tree this year) and now with netfix we have been able to watch them again and again.

So now you know all this you will understand our excitement at spending the day at Spaceport which has a Doctor Who exhibition.
|My little cutie with the adipose|
It was absolutely brilliant. We planned our outfits accordingly. Baba wore her Zap jumper and Doctor Who necklace, I wore my galaxy print dress by Simply be and my new Kewpie wolf necklace (a Bad wolf reference there)
|Oh no its the Darlek's-thank goodness for the red rope|

We had an absolutely brilliant time. Gawping at Darleks, laughing at Space Pigs (Pig men in boiler suits, amazing), the terrifying "The Silence" and the beautiful Ood.
|Not "The Silence"|
|Baba sticking her tongue out at the scariest Doctor Who creatures ever|
Seeing the costumes and models in real life was such a treat and something we will remember for a very long time. Here are a few snaps.

When we got home we immediately starting re watching mat Smiths first season (Babas favorite) although I refused the demand for fish fingers and custard for tea.
