Blackpool Remembered and Blackpool Revisited are FREE digital publications, collated and edited by John Collier. They celebrate the original Doctor Who Exhibition on Blackpool’s Golden Mile, which ran from 1974 to 1985, and the Doctor Who Museum, which ran from 2004 to 2009.

Both books are a labour of love for their creator John Collier and project collaborator Alex Storer. These projects are the first of their kind: in-depth, full-colour, vividly detailed and illustrated accounts of the Doctor Who exhibitions as told by the fans who visited and the people who made them possible. Explore year-by-year floor plans and hundreds of photographs alongside personal recollections and nostalgia of the era, publicity materials, merchandise and everything that made visiting Doctor Who exhibitions so special.

Whether you visited either exhibition in the years gone by or missed out completely, now is your chance to step back in time to visit the TARDIS and defy the Daleks.

Although there have since been many Doctor Who exhibitions, Blackpool was unlike any other and remains fondly remembered by generations of fans. These are their stories.

  1. I’ve worked out from the forensic detail contained that I visited in 1975. If I’d known you were putting this publication together I could’ve sent you a picture of a piece of exhibition merchandise that I think may be very rare. It’s a wall poster called ‘Who’s Alphabet’ with line drawings of the Fourth Doctor spelling out the semaphore alphabet with his scarf. The only images I can find on the internet are the ones I put there and nobody seems to know anything about it. If you ever update the book, would you be interested in a photo?


  2. Great stuff! I remember my holiday in 1984 where I must have frequented the exhibition 3 times in 5 days. I remember them showing the 5-6 regeneration sequence on a permanent loop, back when the 6th Doctor era was an exciting future yet to be discovered.

    I hadn’t realised that it has closed so soon after.

    Very much looking forward to going go back to those glorious and innocent days 🙂
