“For a long time now, I thought I was just a survivor, but I’m not. I’m the winner. That’s who I am. The Time Lord Victorious.”
This arrogant tenth Doctor statement from The Waters of Mars is the basis for the title of a brand-new multi-platform Doctor Who story Time Lord Victorious.
Told across audio, novels, comics, vinyl, digital, immersive theatre, escape rooms and games, the story follows the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Doctors across space and time as they defend their home planet from a terrible race.
Billed as a “whole new Time War”, Time Lord Victorious will be set within the Dark Times at the start of the universe, when even the Eternals were young.
As well as three Doctors, companion Rose Tyler and monsters including the Daleks and the Ood will feature, plus more to be revealed over the coming months as products are announced.
Partners involved in the project include Penguin Random House, BBC Books, Doctor Who Magazine, Titan Comics, Escape Hunt, Big Finish and Immersive Everywhere.
James Goss, Producer, said:
“BBC Studios’ Doctor Who licensees have come together to tell an amazing epic – one that’s full of monsters, fun and heart. All strands of the story unite into a mighty patchwork that ranges from one end of the universe to the next. There’s more to be revealed, but the enthusiasm and ideas which the licensees have come up with are breath-taking. It’s going to be such fun.”
Time Lord Victorious will launch in September 2020 over twelve weeks, with products and experiences releasing from September until January 2021.
