'Doctor Who's Day Roundup: Ex-Experience

Welcome to this week's Doctor Who's Day roundup, a bigger-on-the-inside bucket of delightful Whovian stuff and nonsense from a week on the internet.

And we begin this week with the end of an era. The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff has opened its doors for the last time. Here's a brief tribute to a place of genuine pilgrimage for Whovians worldwide:


And here's Christel Dee and Luke Spillane from Doctor Who: The Fan Show enjoying the last day from the inside:
