The immersive theatre experience opened in May and promises to take audience members on an adventure that drops them straight into the wonderful world of Doctor Who.

The experience isn’t just for hardcore Doctor Who fans as writer and director Daniel Dingsdale told Radio Times: “You can walk in off the street, having never seen an episode of Doctor Who or done any research and come in and have this adventure.

“Because it’s set in its own little pocket universe. Due to the time fracture, creating habit with the dimensions.

“It’s got a solid beginning, middle and end so you can walk in off the street and just go on this adventure.”

Dingsmore did add that this does not mean avid Whovians will feel underwhelmed by the show.

He commented: “If you are a Whovian and if you are a Doctor Who fan, everything within the show, it will be familiar to you.

“Everything that is hidden somewhere it is nodding to or paying homage to the last 60 years nearly of Whovian canon. So if you are a Whovian, you’re gonna have a wonderful night.”

Fans can book tickets for Doctor Who: Time Fracture now until April 2022
