San Diego Comic Con looked a little bit different this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. A virtual 'Comic-Con@Home' meant that Doctor Who could still make an appearance with two brilliant panels.
The BFI are set to screen a brand new animation of The Wheel in Space, a mostly missing Doctor Who story.
As part of the 25th birthday of the Missing Believed Wiped event at the British Film Institute, a new animated segment from Episode One of the Patrick Troughton story, which was lost back in the 1970s, will be screened at the event and will later be released on BBC DVD. Only two of the six episodes are still in the BBC Archives today.
Charles Norton is the producer of the mini-episode and Anne Marie Walsh is the director. Norton previously produced the animated revival of The Power of the Daleks, released in 2016 by the BBC Store and Shada, released in 2017. Walsh will be attending the event and is set to introduce the mini-episode. There will be an interview with Philip Morris, who has previously returned other Doctor Who stories to the BBC Archives.
You can find out more about the BFI's Missing Believed Wiped event on the BFI website. The event will be held at the BFI's Southbank Centre on the 15th December 2018.
Madame Tussauds in Blackpool have created a new Doctor Who area including the TARDIS and a waxwork of Jodie Whittaker.
The Thirteenth Doctor and the TARDIS have set up home in an immersive new area, which takes inspiration from the TV series and gives visitors the opportunity to experience many aspects of the show, as well as featuring plenty of brilliant photo opportunities.
Fans will get the chance to venture into the forest and search for The Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver, before coming face to face with The Doctor and the TARDIS, the very prop used onscreen throughout Series 11.
BBC Studios, in partnership with Escape Hunt, have announced a series of Doctor Who-themed escape rooms, coming to the UK later this year.
Doctor Who: The Live Escape Game will launch in Bristol in December 2018 to tie-in with Jodie Whittaker's debut as the Thirteenth Doctor and will expand to further UK cities in early 2019.
The other confirmed UK cities are Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and Reading.
BBC Studios' Global Director of Live Entertainment, Mat Way, said: "It has been a long-term ambition of the team to be able to bring about Doctor Who-themed escape rooms. Our main role here at BBC Studios is to continually extend the fans enjoyment of our brands, and so to be announcing six new live entertainment games across the country to fans is something really exciting."
Escape Hunt CEO, Richard Harpham, said: "Following the success of our original Escape Hunt games, we are thrilled to be partnering with BBC Studios to create Doctor Who: The Live Escape Game. Going on an Escape Hunt is all about stepping into and experiencing new worlds so strength in the science fiction genre is absolutely key to our content strategy. Doctor Who represents the very best in British action adventure and has a loyal and dedicated fan base that spans all generations. We look forward to bringing the show to life for all of them in its first ever live escape game experience at Escape Hunt venues across the UK."
In addition to these exciting new escape rooms, BBC Studios are also reportedly planning “a raft of Doctor Who attractions, activities and experiences” for the future, so watch this space for what's to come in the near-future!
