This has obviously come as some surprise, particularly at this late stage; the announcement was made on Wednesday, and given the lack of any regular Doctor Who actors in the show other than Nick Briggs (whose voice can conceivable be added in post-production) the touted “logistical” reasons must be related to either props, venue access or some other organizational issue that for some reason has gone unnoticed over the past few months.
Confirmation was issued with the following statement:
We have been informed thatÂ Doctor Who Live at Glasgow SECC on 14th October 2010 has been cancelled.
Refunds are available from point of purchase.
Customers who booked with Ticketmaster will be issued with refunds to the card used at the time of booking. Please allow up to fifteen working days for the amount to appear in your account.
Clearly this is hugely disappointing news, however there is no suggestion that the shows on October 15-17th at Glasgow SECC will meet the same fate.
If you have booked tickets for the October 14th date, refunds should be claimed and received ASAP.
