Daleks poised to invade tour UK

Doctor Who Live promises hot arena action

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Fans of Doctor Who will later this year be able to enjoy Doctor Who Live - the arena manifestation of the BBC hit which promises "the same excitement, adventure and suspense that viewers have come to expect from the TV programme".

The blurb explains: "Opening in wartime London and concluding in an epic onstage battle, audiences should expect the unexpected as The Doctor’s arch-enemies the Daleks are joined by some of the best-loved and most terrifying monsters from the TV series including the Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Judoon and Oods to name but a few."

Matt Smith won't be appearing in person, but he and Karen Gillan are shooting new scenes exclusively for screening on the tour, which also features a live 16-piece orchestra providing the soundtrack for "special FX, optical illusions and spectacular pyrotechnics".

Who supremo Steven Moffatt enthused: "This is everything I ever wanted since I was eleven. A live show, with all the coolest Doctor Who monsters, a proper story, and brand new screen material for Matt Smith's Doctor. I'll be writing scenes for it, and probably attending every single night."

The tour dates are:

Wembley Arena: October 8, 9, 10
Sheffield Arena: October 12, 13
Glasgow SECC: October 14, 15, 16, 17
Birmingham NIA: October 18, 19, 20
