A new "immersive theatrical event" from Immersive Everywhere will transport audiences across space and time in Doctor Who: Time Fractures at Immersive | LDN from 17 February to 11 April 2021.
It's 1940 at the height of the Blitz. A weapon of unknown origin destroys a small corner of Mayfair, and simultaneously opens up a rift in space and time. Earth as we know it is at stake—now is the time for you to step up and be the hero. Travelling to impossible places, confronting menacing monsters and ancient aliens along the way, it’s a journey across space and time to save our race, and our planet.
Audiences will meet Daleks, Cybermen, Time Lords and many other strange and mysterious characters as they travel across space and time to discover different worlds and undertake a mission to save the universe as we know it.
Director Tom Maller said, “we are incredibly excited to be at the creative helm of this project. It has been an enjoyable experience already, working with BBC Studios to make sure Doctor Who: Time Fracture not only meets the extremely high expectations of fans, but exceeds them."
Writer Daniel Dingsdale added, “drawing from the rich legacy of Doctor Who, which spans over half a century, we are creating an adventure that will entertain both fans that have immersed themselves in the show’s universe for years, and audience members who will walk in from the street having never seen an episode. It’s going to be an absolute blast.”
Louis Hartshorn, joint CEO of Immersive Everywhere, said, "based on everything we know now, we are confident that Doctor Who: Time Fracture will be able to go ahead as planned in early 2021 and will be taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our audiences and full creative team.”
