Doctor Who Live at the Wembley Arena from 8 to 10 Oct
Doctor Who Live, a new stage show based upon the BBC’s series Doctor Who, will play at the Wembley Arena, a 12,000 capacity venue in north London from 8 to 10 Oct 2010, as part of a nine cities and 25 date UK tour.
Tickets go on sale Friday 21st May 2010.
Developed in association with Doctor Who’s Executive Producer and show runner, Steven Moffat, who says, "This is everything I ever wanted since I was eleven. A live show, with all the coolest Doctor Who monsters, a proper story, and brand new screen material for Matt Smith's Doctor! I'll be writing scenes for it, and probably attending every single night!"
Please note that actors from the TV series will not be appearing live on stage.
Opening in wartime London and concluding in an epic onstage battle, audiences should expect the unexpected as the The Doctor’s arch-enemies the Daleks are joined by some of the best-loved and most terrifying monsters from the TV series including the Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Judoon and Oods to name but a few.
The show features a 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 Murray Gold. These iconic scores will be brought to life by a 16 piece orchestra live on stage.
