The "Doctor Who" TARDIS has landed at Heathrow. BBC and Heathrow have teamed up to celebrate the 50th anniversary of "Doctor Who."

“In its 50th Anniversary year we want to include fans around the World in our 'Doctor Who' celebrations and this partnership with Heathrow is a fantastic way of capturing the attention of people from across the globe," Amanda Hill, chief brands officer for BBC Worldwide, said in a statement.

Passengers at the London airport will have the chance to experience a variety of "Doctor Who"-themed events including appearances by the Cybermen, TARDIS photo booths, props and memorabilia shows and augmented reality experiences.

“I am delighted that Heathrow has been chosen to host this much loved British iconic series. With visitors from over 180 destinations worldwide, as the UK’s only hub airport, Heathrow offers a fantastic opportunity to bring the 'Doctor Who' experience to an international audience this summer," Susan Goldsmith, operations director at Heathrow Terminal 5, said in a statement.

On July 16, Terminal 5 will feature the London Philharmonic Orchestra performing music from "Doctor Who" and author Jenny Colgan will be signing "Doctor Who" books.

"We are delighted to announce another extension to Heathrow's world-beating facilities -- all of space and time in a stylish blue box, complete with phone. Heathrow with time travel -- nobody need ever be late again," "Doctor Who" showrunner Steven Moffat said in a statement.

Prince Charles and Camilla also visited the "Doctor Who" set as part of the 50th anniversary celebration. Check out photos here.
