Planer will play the part of Vorgenson, a character exclusively adapted for the tour by the television programmeâs Executive Producer and Lead Writer Steven Moffat. The new character is described as an âinter-galactic showmanâ who is the Doctorâs biggest fan.
âIâm incredibly excited to be joining Doctor Who Live and this role is something of a boyhood dream come true,” said Planer. “My character Vorgenson, who has been developed specially for the show by Steven Moffat, is the Greatest Showman in the Galaxy and using his incredible invention, âThe Minimiserâ, he can make any Doctor Who character appear on stage as part of his travelling show dedicated to his hero. This live tour brings all the magic of the TV show together with a host of incredible effects. I hope that I can survive visiting nine cities in October sharing a stage with eleven Doctor Who Monsters and a flying Dalek in tow!â?
The Doctor Who Live tour lasts for a month and kicks-off in London at Wembley Arena on 8th October.
