DOCTOR WHO LIVE!
THE MONSTERS ARE COMING....
The new stage show, based upon the BBC's smash-hit, award-winning series Doctor Who, promises to deliver a spectacular audio/visual experience featuring live music, special effects and appearances from the show's most popular monsters including Daleks, Cybermen, Scarecrows, Oods and Silurian.
With an out-of-this-world set, Doctor Who Live will feature special FX, optical illusions and spectacular pyrotechnics building to an epic finale. Specially edited video clips, drawn from the TV Programme will be shown on a massive screen and accompanied by the music of longtime Doctor Who composer Murray Gold. These iconic scores will be brought to life by a live band on stage.
Nigel Planer (The Young Ones, We Will Rock You, Evita, Chicago) will play the part of Vorgenson, a character exclusively adapted for the tour. The stage show will follow Vorgenson on an inter-galactic journey as he summons monsters in his Minimiser for the audience to see. Matt Smith will appear as the Doctor in specially filmed sequences to be shown on a giant screen on stage.
Doctor Who Live has been conceived as a fully immersive music and monsters spectacular and promises the same excitement, adventure and suspense that viewers have come to expect from the TV programme.
Taking in nine cities and 25 dates, Doctor Who Live kicks off in London at Wembley Arena on 8 October, and will visit Sheffield, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Cardiff and Liverpool, culminating in Belfast on the 7 November.
Please note that actors from the TV series will not be appearing live on stage.
