The Crash of the Elysium


An exhilarating adventure

The Guardian

Just what the Doctor’s army of fans ordered; it’s fast, fun and at times memorably frightening

The Daily Telegraph

What a joy

The Times

Crafted in collaboration with Doctor Who’s creative team at the BBC, including Stephen Moffat and Tom McRae, this immersive experience was designed for families.

Children aged 6 to 12 were thrust into a mission to save the world within 60 minutes. The emotionally gripping and physically challenging show, co-commissioned with the Doctor Who team, drew brave and captivated audiences. A surprise appearance by Matt Smith, the real Time Lord, left lucky attendees in awe.

‘Punchdrunk and Doctor Who! A Marriage made in creative space heaven. It’s been a privilege to work with Felix and Punchdrunk and to put children at the heart of a Doctor Who adventure. I’ve always watched Punchdrunk shows and marvelled at their inventiveness and individuality. Put that together with Doctor Who and there is a wonderful template to tell unique stories in unique ways. The Doctor would definitely approve…’
