It has been revealed that the upcoming Doctor Who Live tour is inspired by the 1973 Third Doctor adventure Carnival of Monsters.“We’ve created a brand new character – called Vorgenson (played by Nigel Planer) – but it is a character who grows out of Carnival Of Monsters,” Doctor Who Live director Will Brenton said to SFX. “All of its genealogy grows out of that episode. And the fans who spotted that reference will enjoy how it happens.” He continued "When I first came aboard this project, it was a project very akin to the Prom offering, And what I thought we needed to do was bring this space alive a lot more, by making it a narrative that takes place in real time, in that Arena at the moment. Which is what we’ve done." Doctor Who Live is on tour across the UK from Friday 8 October for ticket information, visit http://www.doctorwholive.com/.
