A new story based on a 24-hour pursuit of Doctor Who has been announced. A special multi-platform will be a part of Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary and have brand-new character pursuing the Doctor.
In this new story, Death has been sent after Doom, the Universe’s greatest assassin. She goes then seeks out the Doctor to save her from Death and she only has 24 hours and a vortex manipulator to save herself.
Doom will be brought to life by standup comedian, comedy sketch artist and actor Sooz Kempner. She will be joined by other fan-favorite characters from the world of Doctor Who.
Russell T Davies says: “DOOM’S DAY is a huge new adventure for the whole Doctor Who universe – starring the brilliant and hilarious Sooz Kempner as an intergalactic assassin. Her adventures will span comics, audio, a novel, video games stories and more, expanding the world of Doctor Who into brand new territories. Beware the Doom’s Day, it’s coming for us all.”
Sooz Kempner says: “To be part of the Doctor Who universe, a British institution up there with cups of tea and James Bond, is surreal and amazing! I love everything about Doom and can’t believe I get to travel across time and space with her.”
Doom’s Day will be arriving on Doctor Who digital channels later this year. This will be followed by products from Doctor Who Magazine, Titan Comics, Penguin Random House, East Side Games, Big Finish and BBC Audio. Each will tel a portion of Doom’s story.
Each of these partners will be creating their own adventures for DOOM’S DAY. Each will focus on one of the 24 hours Doom has left on the clock. These standalone stories will also have an overarching story that is being told ahead of the finale which will be released on Doctor Who digital channels.
