Doctor Who Live Kicks Off!
Doctor Who Live has started its UK run and itâ€™s looking absolutely brilliant! If youâ€™ve managed to get tickets to one of the shows the congratulations, youâ€™re going to have a great time. If you didnâ€™t manage to get any never fear, the DVD release (thereâ€™s bound to be one) will be just as good!
To wet your appetites or to satisfy your curiosity, SFX.com features a video promoting the show and delves a little into what the audience can expect.
Featuring a host of the Doctorâ€™s greatest enemies including Daleks, Cybermen, Scarecrows and Judoon, the plot revolves around entertainer Vorgenson (played by Nigel Planer who starred alongside Paul McGann in the Eighth Doctor Big Finish audio Hothouse) who has a â€œminimiserâ€, through whch he has been able to collect a host of nasties that the Doctor has defeated and present them for the audiences pleasure.
Doctor Who Live is regarded as a sequel of sorts to the Third Doctor adventure Carnival of Monsters; in fact in this trailer, Vorgenson is described as a “Lurman”.
The video itself has comments and tiny spoilers from cast and crew of the show including director and co-writer Will Brenton, Executive Music Producer Murray Gold, Nick Briggs (who not only voices some of the iconic monsters but also appears on stage as Winston Churchill) and the Eleventh Doctor himself Matt Smith.
