A Tardis built by a Holloway charity is hosting a Doctor Who convention this weekend.

The Kindness Offensive, in Camden Road, originally built the Tardis as a tool shed for a sensory garden for children with special needs.

But with hundreds coming to pose for pictures next to it, the charity – which organises community events to “make the world a better place” – has organised a meet-up of Who enthusiasts around the “time machine” on Sunday.

It takes place from 11.30am to 1pm. For more information about the charity, visit
