The BBC’s Doctor Who Experience comprised a walk-through experience and an exhibition charted the success of the TV show from the first series in 1963 to the then most recent episodes starring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan. Displays in the exhibition include items never seen before including original costumes, the Tom Baker TARDIS police box and two authentic TARDIS sets from the eras of David Tennant and Peter Davison. Visitors could get up close and personal with iconic sets including the Pandorica Box and Chair and confront numerous monsters including several generations of the Daleks and Cybermen as well as Silurians, an Ice Warrior and a Zygon.
Auk created large scale graphics for the experience, adding life to the exhibition. Few high quality images of the original sets existed. Many of the graphics, such as the 12m ‘Evolution of the Daleks’ and the 25m ‘Radiophonic Workshop’ walls as well as the Sontaran’s, Pig Slave, Scarecrow and Liz Ten had to be recreated from scratch in Photoshop and Illustrator.
Other background graphics used low quality photographs of the original BBC sets, artworked and doctored to be of sufficient quality to print at large scale.
