My family and I went on the tour and had a wonderful time. I was the only Dr. Who fan, but our tour guide had so much information about the buildings and London that everyone found it enjoyable. That walk was no joke. I am glad that I told my mother (she's had 2 knee replacements) not to come. She would not have made it. But, if you are in relatively good health you can do it. I did ok with a torn meniscus and there was one pregnant person in the group who looked to be at 7 months.

I've been watching Doctor Who for about 6 years, but unfortunately, due to it not being on Netflix in my region, I haven't had the opportunity to watch it and catch up in ages! The tour was a great, spoiler-free way to learn more about the show, and jog my memory about previous episodes that I didn't remember well!

We love Doctor who

Great tour, nice guide who made me feel like laughing when he hold a sonic screwdriver to avoid us from loosing him. (God, I've forgotten mine in my hotel and went to the comic con the previous week end witj 3 cosplays). I was wondering if Matt could drive a motorbike and the answer is : he is too clumsy. That's was fun. I need to organize something with Whovians to come to this activity.
