Our friends at York Maze have been in touch to tell us that the Big Reveal on Sunday evening – the unveiling of the Twelfth Doctor Who – will be screened at the Dalek-shaped maze in a special late opening!
The identity of the next Doctor Who will be revealed in a live one-off television special, Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor to be broadcast on BBC1 at 7pm on Sunday 4th August. And York Maze have announced they will stay open late so that fans visiting this year’s Doctor Who 50th Anniversary inspired maize maze won’t miss the big reveal.
Says Tom Pearcy from York Maze:
We have already had visitors contacting us to ask if there will be anywhere they can watch the BBC special on Sunday, for fear of missing it on their drive home.
We normally close at 6.30pm, but we have decided to keep the café open an hour later on Sunday 4th August so visitors enjoying their day at York Maze don’t have to rush home. They can stay here and join with other fans in watching the half hour show live on the big screen TV in our cafe. I’m sure our Dalek will be watching the show too to see who will be the next incarnation of their greatest enemy.
York Maze is open to the public from Saturday 13 July to Monday 2 September. See www.yorkmaze.co.uk for details.
