The Space Museum

Andy Glazzard’s passion for collecting Doctor Who toys led to a new career as the curator of his own exhibition.

The Herefordshire town of Bromyard (population: 4,500) isn’t an obvious location for one of the UK’s most flabbergasting collections of Doctor Who memorabilia – and, indeed, science-fiction memorabilia in general. Located 14 miles from Worcester, it’s your traditional, postcard-perfect English market town. Yet nestling between its cosy tea shops and its olde-worlde, Sky TV-free pubs is the Time Machine Museum of Science Fiction, a 13-year pet project of 55-year-old sci-fi nut Andy Glazzard.

“Visitors often remark how quaint Bromyard is, but I wouldn’t want the collection anywhere else,” Andy points out. “I can live here at the museum and look after it properly that way. I couldn’t do that in a large town or city.”

Twenty years ago Andy was a police officer in the East Midlands. Bored of the never-ending paperwork, he decided to up sticks and open a museum in Bromyard; he fell in love with the place almost instantly, he says.

About Doctor Who Magazine

In 1964 Dalekmania led to the birth of Doctor Who licensing, and it’s been with us ever since. The return of the series in 2005 prompted an even bigger range of merchandise, which this time invaded supermarkets as well as toy shops. In 2017 the popularity, and ingenuity, of these products continues unabated. This is the surprising story of Doctor Who toys and games – told by the people who make, sell and collect them.
