Dr Who event was out of this world!

Doctor Who fans of all ages took time to travel to Bishopbriggs Library recently for a special celebration of the century-skipping TV star.

The TARDIS-dwelling Time Lord is a firm favourite at the library, which offers a range of books, DVDs and audio adventures starring the Doctor and his companions.

Last month was WHO-ctober - featuring a range of events dedicated to the mysterious time traveller.

There was a range of drop-in activities at Bishopbriggs Library to help celebrate the new ‘East Dunbartonshire’ Doctor, Peter Capaldi. There was also a Doctor Who Adventure Evening.

Stars at the library helped to create thrilling fun for people of all ages.and there was a terrifying Weeping Angel, a spooky character from the ‘Empty Child’ storyline, a display of audio adventures, books, DVDs and more.

Doctor Who’s assistants at the library even managed to convert an office cupboard into a TARDIS.

And youngsters got the chance to make Doctor Who crafts and their own Sonic Screwdriver.

It was all part of the autumn programme organised by East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture (EDLC) Trust.

EDLC - supported by the council - has lined up a packed programme and a What’s On is available now.

Scott Hill, chairman of EDLC Trust, said: “Our library stars worked hard to create sci-fi fun for people of all ages as part of WHO-ctober - just part of our innovative efforts to encourage people to make full use of the excellent local facilities.

“Everyone had lots of fun, although the Doctor himself was unable to attend, and the children had a terrific time making some wonderful Sonic Screwdrivers.”

Councillor Alan Moir, convener of development and regeneration, said: “The council is delighted to support EDLC - with a fantastic and varied range of events on offer this autumn.

“You don’t need to be Doctor Who to travel through time - the programme can help you delve into the past with fascinating heritage events and then guide you into the future with ebooks and new technology.”

He added: “There genuinely is something for everyone - with a variety of clubs for young people - including musical adventures and gaming sessions.”
