Meet Doom - the Universe’s Greatest Assassin! | Doom’s Day | Doctor Who

Doom’s Day is a huge new adventure for the whole Doctor Who universe—starring the brilliant and hilarious Sooz Kempner as an intergalactic assassin,” returning showrunner Russell T. Davies said in a press release. “Her adventures will span comics, audio, a novel, video games stories and more, expanding the world of Doctor Who into brand new territories. Beware the Doom’s Day, it’s coming for us all.”


Doom’s Day will feature multiple familiar Doctor Who faces to celebrate the show’s 60th anniversary alongside Kempner, and will play out in a series of stories such as comics from Doctor Who Magazine and Titan, audio dramas from Big Finish and BBC Audio, a novel published by Penguin Random House, and a game in development from East Side Games, each focusing on a different hour of the day Doom has left to save herself. Doctor Who’s social media channels will then release a live-action culmination of the event later this year
