Time is running out to help with a new Doctor Who exhibition.

Friday, August 9 is the last day to submit for the ‘Fifty Years of Doctor Who Fans’ exhibition at the National Media Museum.

To coincide with five decades of Doctor Who, the museum in Bradford, is turning its focus away from what is seen on screen to celebrate the fans.

The exhibition will run from Tuesday, November 12, 2013 until Sunday, March 2, 2014.

Museum officials would like to hear your answers to the following questions: What does the programme mean to you? What makes a fan? How do you demonstrate your affection for it?

Also, if you own Doctor Who collectibles and souvenirs, or you have an interesting story relating to the programme, they want to hear from you. Likewise, if you’ve ever knitted your own Dalek or made a custom K-9 from Lego, they’d love to hear from you.

Contributions need to be in by end of play Friday.

To get involved, email, including: A photograph of your object and a maximum of 100 words explaining why you have it, when you got it and why you like Doctor Who

Objects will not be accepted as part of the submission process. Personal objects will only be required once the selection for the exhibition has been made.
