Dr Who favourite Colin Baker 'materialises' at Spaceport

A Sci-fi-tastic event for Dr Who enthusiasts takes place at Spaceport on Saturday, 20 July 2013, when former Dr Who actor, Colin Baker, visits the Wirral attraction.

Colin Baker, who played the 6th embodiment of the celebrated Doctor from 1984 to 1986, will be at Spaceport between 10am to 4pm to meet Dr Who fans and share some anecdotes from his stint as the Time Lord; plus there will also be replica Doctor Who costume characters ranging from the 1970's up to the present day.

Colin's visit launches a fun packed schedule at Spaceport over the summer holidays, including a Monster Making weekend and the new Time Travellers exhibition featuring favourites such as life size Daleks, Cybermen, a TARDIS display, a Sontaran, a scary Weeping Angel and K9; plus prop weapons and an activity area.

Spaceport hosts the exhibition giving sci-fi fans a unique opportunity to experience the creative talents of Hyde Fundraisers, a voluntary organisation who create replica characters from DR WHO, STAR WARS and other sci-fi programmes to raise funds for BBC Children In Need and other charities.
