A total of 492 Doctor Who fans together gathered at La Mole Comic Con in Mexico City to break the world record for ‘Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Doctor Who Characters’. Peter Capaldi and Executive Producer Brian Linchpin – who were in Mexico to celebrate the premier of Doctor Who, Season 9 on NBC’s Syfy channel – attended the event to accept the Guinness World Record.
Doctor Who has previously broken records before, holding both the ‘Longest-Running Science Fiction TV Series’ and ‘Most Expensive Dalek’.
These records are all featured in the new Guinness World Records 2016 Blockbusters! book, which covers records from some of the biggest names in TV, music, film toys and apps and is out now in the UK, Ireland and Australia.
