Cybermen at BBC Pacific Quay
Some people spent their lunch hour today listen to the doom and gloom that is the Budget 2010, but here at the BBC we took a break from reality when we were visited by a couple of Doctor Who Cybermen and a Dalek...
Children from Gourock High School and Lourdes Secondary School in Glasgow were entertained (and in some cases frightened!) by the monsters, before participating in a live webcast with Nick Briggs, voice of the Daleks, Phil Ford, writer of Doctor Who Adventure Games and Charles Cecil, Executive Producer of the Adventure Games and games design guru, hosted by Fred MacAulay. The children saw a preview of the new Doctor Who web game (available from Saturday 26 June) and a clip from the final episode of the series.
The event was broadcast via the web to schools around the country courtesy of BBC Scotland Learning.
I couldn't resist having my picture taken with one of the Cybermen!
