I probably never mentioned this, but my best friend and I are planning a trip to England in September. It’s the first trip out of country for both of us (well, that’s not quite true; I went to Victoria, BC in March, as a dry run of using my shiny new passport), and we both are very excited. Our itinerary includes London, Bath, and, of course, Cardiff, since we’re both fans of Doctor Who.
You might know where I’m going with this.
I found out yesterday that the Doctor Who Experience announced that it will be closing its doors for renovation, to change the Experience so that it reflects the Twelfth Doctor instead of the Eleventh Doctor as the current Doctor. When are they doing this? Starting September 1, and going for six or more weeks.
That’s right. The entire time we’ll be in England.
That’s pretty much ruined my weekend. I really really wanted to see the Doctor Who Experience. I don’t know what to do. We might be able to adjust our plane tickets for some other time, when the Experience is open, but that might be expensive. I expect that instead, we’re going to just cut Cardiff out of our trip altogether and choose somewhere else to go (maybe Scotland).
Sigh. Just my luck.
