More details have been unveiled about the upcoming immersive experience based on the BBC show.
Ahead of performances beginning on the 26th May, it has been confirmed that David Bradley and John Barrowman will be reprising their roles as William Hartnell’s First Doctor and Captain Jack Harkness in pre-recorded cameo appearances for the immersive show.
Talking about the news, David Bradley said: “This is going to be something really special. Anyone who sees the show who is not a Doctor Who fan when they go in, surely will be when they come out! It’s going to be an amazing experience.”
Meanwhile John Barrowman commented: “I wanted to get involved not only because I love storytelling and I love Captain Jack the character, but also because this introduces Jack to the next generation of Doctor Who fans. If you’re coming to this – why not dress up as your favourite character? it’s going to be like Comic Con but with a storyline! Create your character, get in there and enjoy the journey.”
