What do Cyberman and Tutankhamen have in common? Answer: the celebrated discovery of their tombs (yes, one is fictional!). Preview screening of a short documentary to be released as a DVD extra for the classic Dr Who series 'Tomb of the Cyberman'. This documentary considers the influence of the archaeological discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen on 'Tomb of the Cyberman', followed by a conversation with author, Sir Christopher Frayling ('The Face of Tutankhamen'), John J Johnston (Egypt Exploration Society) and sci-fi expert Simon Guerrier.

Doors open at 6pm.
