The BBC has announced plans for the first ever live theatre production of 'Doctor Who'.
The new stage show, based on the iconic sci-fi show, will feature "live music, special effects and appearances from the shows most popular monsters", BBC stated.
Across nine cities and 25 dates, 'Doctor Who Live' begins in London at Wembley Arena on October 8, and will visit Sheffield, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Cardiff and Liverpool, finishing in Belfast on November 7.
Executive producer and show runner of the BBC show Steven Moffat said: "This is everything I ever wanted since I was eleven. 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!"
The plot begins in wartime London and culminates in an epic onstage battle against The Doctors arch-enemies the Daleks, as well as other monsters including the Cybermen, Weeping Angels and Judoon and Oods.
Longtime 'Doctor Who' composer Murray Gold said of the 16-piece orchestra for the show: "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."
However, actors from the TV series will not be appearing live on stage.
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday May 21 2010. Tour dates are as follows:
