Doctor Who Doom's Day

Multi-platform “Doom’s Day” story introduced for Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary

Posted Filed under

A special multi-platform story titled Doom’s Day will celebrate 60th anniversary of Doctor Who by introducing a brand-new character embarked on a 24-hour pursuit of the Doctor.

Stand-up comedian, comedy sketch artist and actor Sooz Kempner will be the face and voice of Doom, the universe’s greatest assassin, travelling through all of time and space in pursuit of the Doctor to save her from the ever-approaching Death. Doom only has 24 hours and a vortex manipulator to save herself before her fate is sealed forever.

The stand-alone trans-media series will launch later this year and feature a number of fan-favourite characters along Doom’s journey. Doom’s adventures will continue on multiple platforms with an overarching narrative which will play out until a finale on Doctor Who digital channels.

Russell T Davies says: Doom’s Day is a huge new adventure for the whole Doctor Who universe – starring the brilliant and hilarious Sooz Kempner as an intergalactic assassin. Her adventures will span comics, audio, a novel, video games stories and more, expanding the world of Doctor Who into brand new territories. Beware the Doom’s Day, it’s coming for us all.”

Sooz Kempner says: “To be part of the Doctor Who universe, a British institution up there with cups of tea and James Bond, is surreal and amazing! I love everything about Doom and can’t believe I get to travel across time and space with her.”

Doom’s Day will kick off on Doctor Who digital channels later in 2023 followed by products from Doctor Who Magazine, Titan Comics, Penguin Random House, East Side Games, Big Finish and BBC Audio — each telling a section of Doom’s story.
