Doctor Who

Doctor Who and Blackpool: The Time Lord's favourite Earth resort

The man who ran one of the famous Doctor Who exhibitions in Blackpool, David Boyle, has died.

There were two exhibitions in the resort. The first at 111 Central Drive, which ran for 11 years from 1974 to 1985. We've searched our archives to have a look at Blackpool's association with Doctor Who over the years.
