downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Doctor Who Live: Tour Details

Tickets for the BBC Worldwide Doctor Who Live - The Monsters Are Coming! are now on sale.

The show will be a  spectacular audio-visual experience - think their successful stage show version of Walking with Dinosaurs but with Doctor Who instead - featuring live music, special effects and appearances from the show's most popular monsters including the Daleks, the Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Judoon and Oods, to name but a few.

Taking in nine cities and 25 dates, Doctor Who Live kicks off in London at Wembley Arena on 8 October 2010, and will visit Sheffield, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Cardiff and Liverpool, culminating in Belfast on 7 November.

With an out-of-this-world set, Doctor Who Live promises the same excitement, adventure and suspense that viewers have come to expect from the TV programme.

Although actors from the TV series will not be appearing live on stage, it will feature specially filmed new video scenes including an exclusive from Matt Smith's Doctor.
