Doctor Who and Sherlock Rides Could Become Part of Upcoming BBC Theme Park

Have you ever wanted to hitch a ride on the TARDIS? Of course you have. And while that may not be possible, the BBC has possibly come up with the next best thing: a theme park featuring a Doctor Who attraction and even Sherlock, Top Gear, and Merlin ones, too. Maybe. Probably.

The Guardian is reporting that BBC Worldwide and Paramount Pictures have struck a £2 billion development deal with the London Resort Company Holdings to bring BBC properties to an entertainment resort just outside London.

However, no shows have actually been confirmed to be a part of the park, but it’s a safe bet to say the aforementioned Doctor Who and Sherlock will be featured, plus through the Paramount side, movies like Star Trek, The Italian Job, and Mission: Impossible will make appearances as well.

Other components of the theme park will include a water attraction, a 2,000-seat theater, and 5,00 hotel rooms.

Construction is set to begin sometime in 2016 or 2017, with an aimed opening of Easter 2020.
