We round up the reviews for the latest immersive experience to arrive in London.

SW Londoner.co.uk: “The Mayfair-based show leans heavily on its incredibly intricate set and costume design and impressive performances from a willing cast to keep you engaged and invested as you hurtle from set to set, but that’s no bad thing as they are the shows’ biggest strengths.”

The Guardian: *** “Time Fracture is let down by its logistical chaos. For the first half-hour we’re in a UNIT base where everything is too crowded, everyone is shouting and no one seems to know what’s going on. We spend too long getting pep talks about saving the universe when all we want to do is get on with it.”

Radio Times: ** “Stuffed with great Easter eggs, winning performances and fun characters, this should be the perfect Secret Cinema-style Doctor Who experience but, in practice, the impression is of an overstuffed story that can’t be fully experienced in the time and space allotted, despite the best efforts of a talented cast.”

British Theatre.com: *** “At times the show has the stately, but plodding, pace of Doctor One, when it needs the exuberant energy of Eleven.”

Time Out: “Secret Cinema veteran Tom Maller’s production is basically quite charming, though as it wore on I found its lack of both urgency and agency increasingly frustrating.”

Evening Standard: ** “Time Fracture is made with love and respect for the BBC series that became a phenomenon, it’s well designed and – with 42 actors interacting with audience members in multiple rooms – is a logistical triumph. But like so much so-called “immersive” theatre it treats spectators like cattle and proves a terrible vehicle for narrative.”

WhatsOnStage: *** “Regardless of lack of strong narrative, fans are going to love it. The attention to detail is strong and video cameos from cast members such as Jodie Whittaker and Matt Smith are a treat.”

Metro.co.uk: *** “Overall, Doctor Who: Time Fracture takes after the show from which it’s based – it’s fun, silly and doesn’t take itself too seriously. If that sounds like your cup of tea, then hop on board.”

London Theatre1: ***** “Overall, this felt a worthy companion to the series, and one that could serve as a proof of concept. At future immersive Doctor Who events, perhaps the BBC might consider loosening control just a little and, for example, allowing writers to create their own, original villains. This one successfully justifies more, even bigger shows. I can’t wait.”

The Stage: *** “Immersive experience set in the Doctor Who universe features committed actors and an impressive set but lacks plot.”

The Times: ** “This shambling immersive celebration of everyone’s favourite Time Lord feels more like a slightly tacky incarnation of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Sometimes, to be honest, the adventure resembles a cheap and cheerful fairground entertainment.”

Pocket Size Theatre: ***** “Time Fracture will go down as one of the best theatrical experiences I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of. Engaging, exciting, and utterly enthralling.”

A Younger Theatre: **** “Doctor Who: Time Fracture is a terrific experience with ample content to thrill fans of the show, while suitably engaging for those new to the franchise too. With a talented and engaging cast, outstanding production value, and a great narrative to it, this is an exciting and ambitious production; diminished only slightly by the logistics of managing such large audiences at once.”

The Telegraph: **** “Any fan will enjoy this immersive-theatre production below London’s streets. Prepare to meet Time Lords, Cybermen and many besides.”

There Ought to be Clowns: “The level of world-building here though is sensational. Rebecca Brower’s production design is an absolute treasure trove of visual cues and tributes to the full breadth of Doctor Who’s storied history.”

The Upcoming: *** “The finale at Gallifrey, which involves a reunion of all incarnations of the Doctor and an exhilarating and unnerving trip through the basement of the Weeping Angels, dispels the disappointment of the first act. It also reminds viewers that the visually stunning segments are where the joy is to be found in this show. One just has to hope to be lucky enough to be taken on the right journey along the way.”
