Doctor to Return to Stage?

The Sun says: The multi-media extravaganza will feature a state-of-the-art light and sound show including many of the cult hit’s best-loved characters.
The Doctor will take on flying DALEKS, croaky CYBERMEN and stocky SONTARANS in the family event. And 3-D footage is expected to be at the heart of the production.
Top brass are plotting to recreate the show’s magic at huge arena venues like the O2 in London and the NEC near Birmingham.
An insider explained: “The BBC know they’ve got a massive hit show on their hands, so they want to take it to the next level.
“They want it to be a Doctor Who experience which will blast fans with amazing visuals and music.
“The emphasis will be on technology so it’s unlikely any of the show’s stars will be on stage.
“But they are expected to feature in video elements. That said, the idea of using real actors hasn’t been ruled out.”
The plans are at an early stage but a source at BBC Worldwide, which handles the corporation’s commercial deals, said an announcement could be made “in a month”.
