BBC Studios on Monday announced a Doctor Who multi-platform story launching later this year: Time Lord Victorious.
The project will include partners such as Penguin Random House, Doctor Who Magazine, Titan Comics, Escape Hunt, Big Finish Productions, Eaglemoss Hero Collector, Immersive Everywhere, Maze Theory, BBC Books and BBC Audio, uniting to tell a brand-new Doctor Who story.
Time Lord Victorious will launch later this year, with products and experiences scheduled to launch over a 12-week period.
The “new and untold story, set within the Dark Times at the start of the universe, when even the Eternals were young,” will follow several Doctors across space and time as they defend their home planet Gallifrey from “a terrible race.” The story will feature the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Doctors, companion Rose Tyler and monsters including the Daleks and the Ood, with more to be revealed over the coming months as products are announced.
“BBC Studios’ Doctor Who licensees have come together to tell an amazing epic – one that’s full of monsters, fun and heart,” said producer James Goss. “All strands of the story unite into a mighty patchwork that ranges from one end of the universe to the next. There’s more to be revealed, but the enthusiasm and ideas which the licensees have come up with are breath-taking. It’s going to be such fun.”
Goss elaborated later on social media that missing one platform doesn’t mean you will get an incomplete story experience:
