Dr Who Coming to Stonehaven

By bellmannews / May 20, 2019

FANS of the legendary TV series can glimpse the inside of the Doctor’s Tardis in a brand-new virtual reality experience using headsets – by visiting Stonehaven’s library next Monday.

Jodie Whittaker voices an animated version of the thirteenth doctor in Doctor Who:The Runaway. In this adventure, the Doctor needs your help as her unlikely assistant in a race against time to return a strange and potentially dangerous creature called Volta to his home planet.

Armed with your own sonic screwdriver, it’s down to you to help the Doctor as she faces the forces of evil in this virtual reality story, which can be experienced from 10:30am to 7:30pm on Monday, May 27 at Stonehaven Library.

Intergalactic health and safety advice warns the headsets are unsuitable for those aged under 13. Young people aged between 13 and 16 will need an adult to complete a consent form on their behalf.

Cllr Anne Stirling, Aberdeenshire Council’s Communities Committee chair, said: “This is a highly innovative twist on transporting readers to a world of their own imagination. It is pleasing to see the Live Life Aberdeenshire Library Service embracing modern technology to encourage everyone to journey into a world of make believe and fantasy. I would like to thank the BBC for allowing Live Life Aberdeenshire to use these fantastic virtual reality headsets in a selection of libraries.”

David Cook, Aberdeenshire Council’s Culture and Sport sub-committee chair, said: “I am sure many people will be thrilled that Doctor Who will be visiting a number of Aberdeenshire libraries over the coming months. I hope as many residents as possible enjoy the engaging and interactive experience and adventure this engaging film offers.”
