Doctor Who fans will soon be able to head on a very special adventure in time and space – with tickets for new immersive theatrical event Doctor Who: Time Fracture set to go on sale this week.
The event from Immersive Everywhere – the team behind The Great Gatsby, the UK’s longest running immersive show – will take place at Immersive | LDN, a former military drill hall dating back to 1890, from 17th February to 11th April 2021.
The event features an original story arc and will see audiences meet all manner of classic characters, including Daleks, Cybermen, Time Lords, and a character from Time Lord Victorious, BBC Studios’ brand new multi-platform Doctor Who story.
The official plot synopsis for the event reads, “1940 – it’s the height of the Blitz. A weapon of unknown origin destroys a small corner of Mayfair, and simultaneously opens up a rift in space and time.
“For decades, UNIT has fought to protect the people of Earth from the dangers it poses, but they’ve been beaten back as the fracture multiplies out of control.
“Earth as we know it is at stake – now is the time for you to step up and be the hero. Travelling to impossible places, confronting menacing monsters and ancient aliens along the way, it’s a journey across space and time to save our race, and our beautiful planet.”
The show’s director, Tom Maller said, “We are incredibly excited to be at the creative helm of this project. It has been an enjoyable experience already, working with BBC Studios to make sure Doctor Who: Time Fracture not only meets the extremely high expectations of fans, but exceeds them.
Meanwhile, writer Daniel Dingsdale added:“Drawing from the rich legacy of Doctor Who, which spans over half a century, we are creating an adventure that will entertain both fans that have immersed themselves in the show’s universe for years, and audience members who will walk in from the street having never seen an episode. It’s going to be an absolute blast.”
