MET was a finalist in a prestigious completion to create an immersive walk through experience allowing visitors to journey into the world of the popular BBC TV series Dr Who.
After extensive research into the history, characters, plotlines and dedicated fan-base of the show, we decided to create an experience that actually allows the visitors to play a starting role in an original, immersive version of the show.
On entering the experience visitors walked into what they thought would be a screening of a never before seen episode of the show where the Doctor has been kidnapped. As the show began the Doctors’ Tardis appeared in front of the screen and his assistant stepped out, asking the audience to come with her to help rescue the Doctor. Visitors then truly became part of the show journeying to the outer reaches of the universe in the Tardis, time travelling back to Victorian England to battle Sontarans, running from Cyber men and even facing a final showdown with the Daleks!
We carried out extensive research into theatrical, audio visual and interactive techniques to create an interactive theatre set that put visitors at the very centre of the performance.
