Today, it has been revealed that the Doctor Who exhibition in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Museum has no room for the 13ft alien creature. They were keen to put the prop in the centre of all the action, however this has become impossible for the events team to continue with at the exhibition. Bosses have said that people should not be put off, because of the exterminated Racnoss.
Martin Wilkie, Boss of the exhibition has issued the following statement:
“The Empress of Racnoss is the largest prop made for Doctor Who so far. We are in the temporary exhibition space which is in the former cellars at Kelvingrove. We could certainly fit the Empress into the main area, but unfortunately we are in a space which is equally fantastic, just not as tall. The fact that the Empress won’t be in Glasgow is a bit of a shame, but we have plenty of other really exciting things.”
200,000 people are predicted at the museum during the times of Saturday 28 March 2009, to Monday 04 January 2010, which opens next weekend.
A spokesperson for Culture & Sport In the city has said “We are confident that Doctor Who fans won’t be disappointed by what they will see. There are some pretty large exhibits which have made it to Glasgow, such as the Face of Boe.”
ALL tickets have been sold out for the first 2 days, so it is expected that people will not be let down.
