“It’s incredible to be on the streets of Cardiff and hear someone who comes from China, or someone who comes from Russia, or someone who comes from America saying ‘can you direct me to the Doctor Who Experience?’ and that has actually happened and they haven’t clocked it’s me, because I’ve been in heavy disguise”, he said.
“But people do come from all over the world to come and visit the Doctor Who Experience, and that’s a great example of how successful it has been”, Capaldi continued. “I’m sorry it’s closing, I’m sorry I’m not there, please have a wonderful wonderful time. And take the spirit of Doctor Who and the Doctor Who experience with you wherever you go.”
Both fans and staff at the Cardiff Bay venue spent much of the final day sharing memories and tributes on Twitter.
