"BBC Studios' 'Doctor Who' licensees have come together to tell an amazing epic – one that's full of monsters, fun and heart," says James Goss, producer, "Doctor Who." "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" is set within the Dark Times of the “Doctor Who” world, at the start of the universe. It follows several Doctors across space and time as they defend their home planet. The story will feature the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Doctors, companion character Rose Tyler and classic monsters, including the Daleks and the Ood.
The announcement for a multiplatform story arc comes following BBC Studio's recent partnership with Roblox for a collection of new game avatars-inspired by "Doctor Who."
