BENDIGO cinemas came alive on Sunday for the screening of the 50th anniversary Doctor Who special The Day of the Doctor.
Fans dressed up for the event, with some Whovians even creating props.
18-year-old Sam Pratt-White built a tardis.
Sam bought the $2000 tardis for his 18th birthday this year instead of buying a car.
Sam said the 2.8m high design was assembled and painted in his backyard and then taken to the cinema to be put on display.
"I hope it fits inside our house," he said.
"We have high ceilings so it should be fine."
Sam said Doctor Who remained relevant because it was quotable.
"It is quirky," he said.
"The tardis provides so many opportunities for adventures."
Bendigo Cinemas general manger Ron Bolitho said originally the cinemas were only going to show two sessions of the special.
"They sold out quickly, so we had to put more on," he said.
Bendigo Tramways craftsman Darren Hutchesson created a dalek out of recycled materials.
The model dalek flips open so Mr Hutchesson can sit inside it and bellow "exterminate" at people.
"I collected disused advertising signs from the trams," he said.
"I've worked on it for the past 12 months."
Mr Hutchesson said he choose to create a dalek because they are full of hate.
"They are truly terrifying," he said.
