Costumes and props from Doctor Who's Mummy on the Orient Express...

In the Doctor Who season eight episode, 'Mummy on the Orient Express', as the title suggests the time-travelling 'Doctor' and his companion 'Clare Oswald' face a supernatural mummy creature killing guests on a train in space modeled after the infamous luxury passenger train. Here's a collection of original costumes and props from the episode on display at the Doctor Who Experience exhibition at Cardiff Bay in Wales on April 20, 2015.

Included in the exhibit are costumes worn by British pop star, Foxes, as the singer on the train carriage (the golden dress on the left), plus the outfit worn by Daisy Beaumont as 'Maisie', an integral passenger on the train. Plus the cool alien-looking sarcophagus and the mummy creature from the episode were on show to see up close.

Also on display was Jenna Coleman's intricate flapper dress from the episode (Howard Burden is Series Costume Designer), which was supposed to be Clara's final journey with the Twelfth Doctor and a treat after their last adventure had ended on a sour note.
