The Space Museum

A Collection of Doctor Who Oddities

The purpose of The Space Museum is to illustrate how Doctor Who has become an accepted part of wider culture. You will find here references to features of the programme which are out of their original context. The word Dalek in particular has been absorbed into our language and now stands for much more than just a pepperpot-shaped monster from Skaro.

Dr Why is a time traveller, cousin of Dr Who. In a creative and humorous way he shows that science can only answer questions about the internal workings of the universe. Questions about ultimate meaning and purpose can only be dealt with by philosophy and religion.
