Play will help celebrate the Doctor’s 50th anniversary

A theatre company from Newcastle has found a special way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who with a new comedy play about the religion of Doctor Who.

Illumination Theatre will be staging Blue Box Messiah, written by Wallsend’s Michael Gilroy-Sinclair, who has previously written the Doctor Who astrology book Whostrology.

There will be a special preview performance at the Jam Jar Cinema in Whitley Bay on Tuesday, November 26.
