Welcome!

Blackpool Remembered is a FREE digital publication, collated and edited by John Collier. It celebrates the original Doctor Who Exhibition on Blackpool’s Golden Mile, which ran from 1974 to 1985.

Hot on the heels of the latest series of Doctor Who, every year fans would travel the length and breadth of the country to visit the TARDIS and defy the Daleks – no other television show had its own permanent exhibition, and this was a chance to get up close and personal!

Blackpool Remembered charts the history of the exhibition, bringing together special memories, stories and photographs from the fans who visited it, as well as documenting the ever-changing exhibits which, like the series itself, regenerated every year to bring new thrills and excitement. Alongside this, are detailed recollections from some of the people who made it happen. 

Travel back in time through a feast of nostalgia, with many previously unseen photographs, exclusive interviews and illustrations. Contributors include Steve Cambden, Julie Jones, Bob Richardson and Mike Tucker.

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

Blackpool Remembered is now available!

  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 🙂
