Fans' chance to go on an adventure with the Doctor.

DOCTOR Who fans will get the chance to step inside the Tardis and defeat the Daleks in a new show dedicated to the long-running programme.

The Doctor Who Experience will include special effects and newly-filmed scenes with current Doctor Matt Smith recreating the Time Lord's adventures.

The show, which opens at London's Olympia on Sunday, February 20, also includes an exhibition charting the history of the show from its first series in 1963 to the latest episodes.

Original costumes, a Tom Baker-era Tardis and Cybermen, Silurians and a Zygon will also be on show.

Executive producer Steven Moffat said: "The Doctor Who Experience is a fan's dream come true - a fully interactive adventure that will allow viewers of the show to get as close as possible to some of the scariest monsters from the series.

"It will also be the first time that Doctor Who artefacts from all the show's 47-year history - classic and new - will be on display together, many of them being seen for the first time.

"And never mind that, this is the day the Doctor teaches you how to fly the Tardis through time and space, and takes you into battle with all his deadliest enemies in a brand new adventure.

"So steady your nerves and bring your own sofa - the Doctor needs you."

The Doctor Who Experience will eventually be given a long-term home in Cardiff in 2012.

Tickets for the show go on sale on November 18 through
