Writer Steven Moffatt said he wanted to recreate the excitment for the stage.

“This is everything I ever wanted since I was 11,” he said. “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.”

Doctor Who Live will open in wartime London and end with what is described as an “epic on-stage battle”.

The action will be set to a live soundtrack by TV show composer Murray Gold, with a 16-piece orchestra live on stage.

Gold said: “The live element always adds something extra, but these will also be brand new arrangements for a new band of very talented musicians. It’s very exciting.”

    you might find local tour companies or bus operators do trips to these venues

    Or if there is enough interest why not see if you school will organize a trip.
