Gallifreyan costumes from Doctor Who's The Day of the Doctor on display...

After watching Matt Smith's final Christmas special episode and swan song from the Doctor Who series, I have to say I preferred the 50th anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor. Here are a collection of High Council Time Lord and Gallifreyan soldier costumes and props from the episode on display at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay, Wales on December 9, 2013.

One of my favourite things about the costumes and props on display at the Doctor Who Experience is that they are usually not hidden away behind display cases, so you can actually see all the details and workmanship that has gone into them up close. It's almost like being a kid in a candy store, only you can't touch anything, no matter how much you want to.

I really liked the more delicate collar, which is a distinctive element of a Time Lord's Gallifreyan look, of this High Council costume designed by Howard Burden. These rich coloured robes are just the kind of science fiction costumes I love to see on my travels.

If you like this Gallifreyan High Commander costume, be sure to check out these other Time Lord costumes from Doctor Who on display.

Also on display with the ornate Time Lord robes was a Gallifreyan soldier battle uniform which featured in the episode, plus also the mini-episode prequel 'The Last Day', which showed events from a Gallifrey military perspective before the Daleks attack on Arcadia.
