TODAY is Doctor Who Day, with fans of the long-running series celebrating nearly 60 years of Dr Who on our screens.

The Doctor and his companions have been a firm favourite among viewers after making their screen debut on November 23, 1963.

And Herefordshire certainly has its own share of fans, with one county town even home to a museum dedicated to the Doctor, his TARDIS, and other sci-fi TV hits.

Based in The Square, Bromyard, The Time Machine Museum of Science Fiction features a TARDIS entrance and promises fans the opportunity to get up close to lots of actual screen used props and costumes from Doctor Who, alongside others from Red Dwarf, Star Wars, Star Trek,Thunderbirds, Stingray, and Captain Scarlet.

And it's a hit with visitors, receiving a four-star rating on reviews website, Tripadvisor, with 83 of 103 reviewers rating it excellent or very good.

"Hidden gem for anyone into Dr Who and science fiction in general," wrote visitor ChamMusic.

"Big focus is Dr Who. Loads of memorabilia, including genuine props from the shows - both classic and modern.

"But there are plenty of more general sci-fi artifacts as well - various TV shows etc

"Well worth a visit if you're into this sort of thing!"

And Eileen B said: "I'm about as far from a sci-fi fan as you can get but as my brother loves all that so a friend suggested I take him here.

"It's a little hidden gem and brought back memories of all the Dr Who I hid behind the sofa during.

"It's worth just turning up for a chat with Andy the owner of this private and vast collection. No spoilers here but if you were born in the 60's its a great way to spend a couple of hours reliving childhood memories, one or two exhibits are unique gems for avid fans too."

For some visitors, though, the museum was just a bit too Doctor Who focused...

"The Time Machine Doctor Who museum has very limited appeal, except for Doctor Who fans. We were in and out after 25 minutes, and that was after going round twice," wrote Blodwyn W.
