Matt Smith has revealed he is very excited about the upcoming 'Doctor Who Live' shows which will feature an array of the Time Lord's greatest enemies

Matt Smith can't wait to see "big explosions and monsters" at the 'Doctor Who Live' shows.

The 27-year-old actor - who plays The Doctor in the BBC One sci-fi series - will be attending the opening night of the spectacular stage show next Friday (08.10.10) and admits he is very excited to see his character's greatest enemies come to life.

He said: "'Doctor Who Live' - the monsters are coming! It's going to be an extravaganza, quite simply as a 'Doctor Who' fan it's all your dreams come true at once. Every monster from the entirety of its history set to Murray Gold's brilliant and now iconic score and that's without mentioning the pyrotechnics which I always love. There's going to be explosions, big explosions with monsters.

"And of course it will be scary it's 'Doctor Who'. I am going to the show on Friday October 8 at Wembley Arena - be there or be oblong."

Matt also revealed The Doctor will be left with a crisis to solve when Vorgenson - a unique new character developed for the show and played by 'Young Ones' star Nigel Planer - summons the monsters with his invention 'The Minimiser'.

In a video interview available at, Matt added: "Vorgenson is an intergalactic showman who has the terrible and rather ghastly machine called 'The Minimiser'. I won't tell you what it does, but needless to say it has a lot of power and places The Doctor in a position that he needs to address."

Although Matt will not be starring in the stage show he will appear as The Doctor in several video scenes, and the show will feature a huge array of the Time Lord's enemies including the Daleks, Cybermen, Judoon and Silurians.

The upcoming 25-date stage show kicks off at London's Wembley Arena on October 8, and will visit Sheffield, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Cardiff and Liverpool before closing in Belfast on November 7.

Tickets are available via and through Ticketmaster.
