Where will the TARDIS appear next?

Get out your sonic screw drivers. You can be part of an amazing journey through time and space. Join comedian Rob Lloyd and his bubbling laboratory of scientists to explore the mysteries of Doctor Who in a live interactive stage show presented by RiAus and BBC Worldwide.

The Science of Dr Who will feature loads of original scenes from the BBC television series. Rob Lloyd and his exploding test tube of scientists will investigate time travel and teleportation. Be smarter than the other Dr Who regenerators and learn how the TARDIS is bigger on the inside. Find out if regeneration is in fact possible.

Plot which Doctor Who alien will take over the universe. Bring your smartphone or tablet and take part in the interactive experience. The scientists helping you delve into dark matter are: Dr Martin White, a particle astrophysicist at the University of Adelaide; Dr Allie Ford, a science communicator at Monash University; Dr Alan Duffy, an astrophysicist at the University of Melbourne and David Jennens a physicist from the University of Melbourne who is working at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. 'This will give everyone something to talk about for a very long time to come,' says RiAus Director, Dr Paul Willis.

Paul Willis, whose doctorate is in palaeontology, has a long association with science from his days working on TV shows Catalyst and Quantum. Now he works towards creating discussion between doctors, scientists and audiences, through live events and social media. Programs like Science Behind the Headlines are streamed online. One of RiAus' highly publicised events was screening 17 live vasectomies worldwide on World Vasectomy Day, October 2013. Questions from the audience were fielded by the surgeon during the operation. 'I like to think we zig when everyone else zags,' Willis says. That sounds like a skill he might have picked up as a traveller on the TARDIS.

One lucky alien or audience member will win a fantastical set of classic Doctor Who Monsters Coins valued at $375. Your Perth Mint coins will be a permanent and valuable reminder of this amazing show. One set per performance is on offer!
