Jodie Whittaker voices an animated version of the Thirteenth Doctor, who recruits viewers as her assistant in a race against time to return a strange and potentially dangerous creature called Volta to his home planet. Viewers are given their own sonic screwdriver to help the Doctor as she faces the forces of evil.

Doctor Who: The Runaway is available for UK audiences to download for free in two versions. The immersive interactive version is available from the Oculus Store and Vive Port for use on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive with a runtime of 13 minutes. The 360 degree video version is available to download from the BBC VR App for the Oculus Go and GearVR with a runtime of 11 minutes.
