A notice on the shows website said ” Our journey through space and time is coming to an end sooner than expected – but what a joyful journey this has been. The final performance will be on Sunday 5th June.“
“Doctor Who: Time Fracture was created as a love letter to Doctor Who fans and, despite facing extreme challenges over the past two years, we are extremely proud that its vision and ambition was so beautifully delivered.“
“Thank you for being a part of our wibbly wobbly, timey wimey adventure. If you have tickets for a performance after 5th June your ticket supplier will be in contact with you soon. You will be entitled to an exchange or a refund.“
Doctor Who: Time Fracture was brought to life using original costumes and props from the TV series, sourced from the BBC’s Doctor Who props store in Cardiff, as well as new costumes which have been meticulously recreated from original pieces that were either not available or no longer exist.
Presented under licence by Immersive Everywhere, the show is written by Daniel Dingsdale with Doctor Who lore consultancy and script editing by James Goss and design by Rebecca Brower.
