Doctor Who Live brings the monsters to UK arenas for Autumn 2010

Posted: 19th May 2010

Set your eyes to STUN. If you love Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Judoon and the Oods - and you live within striking distance of London, Sheffield, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Cardiff, Liverpool or Belfast - your Autumn just got a whole lot more exciting.

The BBC is taking its phenomenally successful Doctor Who franchise on the road, with the performances set to feature a spectacular audio-visual experience of live music, special effects and appearances from the show's most popular monsters.

The show, which begins in wartime London and concludes with what promises to be an epic onstage battle, will also include specially filmed video sequences featuring new Doctor, Matt Smith (be still my beating hearts), optical illusions and spectacular pyrotechnics building to the intensely exciting finale.

To add to the excitement, Murray Gold's iconic (and still a bit scary) theme tune will be brought to life by a sixteen-piece orchestra live on stage.

Taking in nine cities and 25 dates, Doctor Who Live starts in London's Wembley Arena on 8th October for three dates, before moving onto arenas across the UK, including matinee performances in London, Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff and Belfast. Tickets priced £25 to £38.50 (+ booking fee) go on sale at 9am on Friday 21st May and will be available via the "Tickets" links, below.
