I WHO …. Something Old Something New.. Something Borrowed and…. A Few Daleks

Posted on Updated on

MakeItWorkShop’s resident Daleks Dread and Drik recently had 2 very special Vip invitations and were extremely excited.

Will Corfield and Nicola Oldham were celebrating a Whoovian themed wedding at the fabulous Lakeside Suite in Southport.

Sworn to their best behaviour not to exterminate anyone, Drik and Dread made their way along Lord Street towards the reception.

They did stop for a few Selfies on the way with a few shoppers wanting to say Hi.

Both the Bride and groom looked amazing and Bridesmaids were all dressed in Tardis blue.

The Bride and Groom were seated at the head table with their own Sonic Screwdrivers side by side. Dread and Drik were behind. This gave them a great vantage point to see all the guests and plot their demise if they misbehaved.

It was a family friendly Doctor Who wedding. They used blue as a key colour … which was completed with a beautiful Doctor Who cake topper – The Doctor and His Companion running. Decorated in Gallifreyian text – the language of the Time Lords. It looked amazing.
The Lakeside Suite was a perfect location overlooking the Marine Lake. The entrance was adorned with a River Song Journal as a Guest Book which the team signed on behalf of Drik and Dread. There were also small wooden hearts to write a message on and post into a picture frame. The Tardis blue theme carried into the blue chair sashes and napkin ties, and also had blue LEDs in the centre pieces

Thank you for a wonderful day Will and Nicola Oldham.

Dalek Drik (our 7ft gold Dalek) is available for hire and a quote on request can be provided. Dalek Dread (5ft Black Dalek) has returned to Skaro and isnt returning our calls at the moment.

Posted on Updated on


A quick peek at one of the items we will be bringing along with us to Southport Comic Con on Saturday 24th February.

Doctor Who Comic Event exclusive – Signed by Neil Edwards / Paul Cornell on 13th January, 2016. Doctor Who 2015 Four Doctors was a Forbidden Planet Exclusive Signed Edition.

It’s the greatest Doctor Who comics crossover event of all time, as the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth incarnations of the Doctor come face to face for the first time ever!

When an unseen enemy maneuvers the three Doctors into an impossible meeting, the future of the universe itself is put at stake. It will take all of the Doctor’s innate cunning and adaptability to team up with his past and present selves to uncover the immensely powerful culprit!

Tickets and information on the event can be found at https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Southport/Southport-Theatre-And-Convention-Centre/Southport-Comic-Con-2018/13050920/
