BBC working on Doctor Who virtual reality special

The BBC is taking Doctor Who into the world of virtual reality.

A one-off special called Doctor Who: The Runaway will be released in “the coming months”.

It is a new original story set in the TARDIS and stars Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor in animated form. It will run for around 12 minutes and will be available on selected VR headsets.

Fans will get the chance to be the Doctor’s champion and help her on an exciting adventure, as they find themselves at the centre of the action facing a deadly threat.

Jo Pearce, creative director for the BBC’s digital drama team, says: “Fans will experience the TARDIS like never before in this thrilling new interactive story. As ever, the Doctor is full of warmth, wit and charm – helped by a wonderful performance from Jodie – which puts fans at the heart of the story as they immerse themselves in this beautifully animated world.”
