Dreamland info

Well, the press release for Dreamland has been unleashed so it won't be our little secret for very long. What does it reveal? A little about the plot -

Roswell, Nevada. The dusty strip of desert where nothing ever grows except alien legends and strange stories about flying saucers... The TARDIS touches down in 1958 and another legend is about to be born!

More specifically... 'During a visit to a local diner he (the Doctor) stumbles upon a mysterious alien artefact that leads him on a mission to rescue Rivesh Mantilax from the threat of the Viperox and the clutches of the American military.'

So, we have the name of the (apparent) enemy - the Viperox! Now, that's a great name for an alien menace and when we heard screen legend David Warner was going to voice the Viperox we were confident a memorable villain was about to be born! The Viperox! You can already hear the Doctor spitting out the name.

Little wonder Executive Producer Russell T Davies has said, 'Dreamland is a remarkable project and I'm thrilled with it. Phil Ford is a wonderful writer and promises to send the Doctor into a whole new visual dimension.'

And the Doctor gets two - count 'em - two new companions in this adventure! Over the months ahead we'll meet them. Find out how they came to life - how they were written, drawn, animated, voiced... and received!

Right now we can reveal one of them is voiced by Georgia Moffett who played Jenny in the Doctor's Daughter. Cards on table, we lurve Georgia and were delighted she was onboard because apart from anything else, it meant we could grab her for an interview - an interview you'll see on these very pages.

But in the meantime, take a look at the Doctor Who press release.
