time travellers met their hero when Worksop library held a special Doctor Who family fun day.

Matt Smith look-a-like Tom Connor brought his sonic screwdriver and a Tardis tent for young readers to play in.

One of his arch enemies, a Dalek, also made an appearance, but luckily it didn’t exterminate anybody.

Library programmes manager Michelle Dunstan said: “We got a good turnout, 300 more people than usual and it was great to see the children’s faces when the Dalek turned up.”

“They all knew the Doctor Who stories and we had the books and DVDs out for them to borrow.”

“They were able to make their own Tardis and do some Doctor Who colouring.”

“We also had a fancy dress competition which was won by a little Cyberman.”

“Three siblings dressed as Matt Smith, Amy Pond and a Cyberman won second prize.”

They also hosted a Christmas crafts making day at Memorial Avenue.
