Doctor Who Lockdown was started by Emily Cook of Doctor Who magazine in 21 March 2020 with a watch-along of The Day of The Doctor. As it gained popularity, Emily organised more watch-alongs.

Doctor Who: Time Fracture has been postponed once more to 26 May 2021

Time Fracture, an immersive Doctor Who experience as part of the Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious multi-platform saga has been postponed once again due to the ongoing pandemic.

The first performance will now take place on Wednesday 26 May 2021 at 18h00. Time Fracture is currently booking until March 2022.

Doctor Who: Time Fracture is an immersive theatre experience which throws Whovians right into the world of Doctor Who.

Set in 1940, at the height of the Blitz, fans have been recruited by UNIT to find out what is going on at the heart of the time fracture, a rift in space time created by a weapon of unknown origin, as it destroyed a small corner of Mayfair. The fracture is now at out of control and UNIT has come close to defeat. Help them find out who or what is behind the time fracture for your own Time Lord Victorious adventure.

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious (TLV) is a multi-platform saga following The Doctor and his fight against the Kotturuh. TLV delves into the dark times, an era at the beginning of the time war, across comic books, audio dramas and immersive theatre to name a few.

Fans who experience a Time Fracture show are set to be part of an epic adventure. Due to the postponement, Time Fracture has reassured fans they will communicate with those who have already booked tickets through them and ask other ticket selling platforms to do the same. They will also reallocate customer tickets to new dates.

They confirm via their Twitter page “If you cannot attend your rebooked performance, you will be able to contact the Box Office to select a new date for Doctor Who: Time Fracture, or alternatively, you can cancel and receive a full refund.”

“Inspired by her love for children, her family and friends continue to raise funds in her honour to make a change to a child’s life and bring a smile to their face,” the foundation states.

The charity was set up in memory of a young woman named Alicia who was diagnosed with cancer aged 20. After a series of procedures including a hysterectomy, tumour removal and chemotherapy, Alicia finally got the all-clear. Unfortunately, in 2013, she received the news the cancer had spread to her liver. Following complications from a further operation, she sadly lost her life.

The Alicia Boparai Foundation continues to raise funds to help children affected by such illnesses, in her memory. All sales will benefit Mandip’s chosen charity.

General sale has been open from 18:00 today and all items will continue to be available while stocks last. Figure sets are first come, first served, while autographed prints are unlimited.
