Doctor Who - Inside the Tardis

AUCKLAND & WELLINGTON, June 10 /MediaNet International-AsiaNet/ --

Live On Stage For The First Time In New Zealand

The Tardis will be travelling to New Zealand stopping in Wellington on 5 August and in Auckland on 6 August.

Colin Baker (The Sixth Doctor), Sylvester McCoy (The Seventh Doctor) will join Jon Pertwee’s (The Third Doctor) companion Katy Manning on stage where they will share their experiences and reveal some secrets of the phenomenal 42 year-old BBC show.
