Doom's Day

Someone has sent literal Death after Doom. She can only outrun it for 24 hours. Unless she can find the Doctor.

Doom’s Day is a special multi-platform story which celebrate Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary by introducing a brand-new character on a 24-hour pursuit of the Doctor. Stand-up comedian, comedy sketch artist and actor Sooz Kempner is the face and voice of Doom, and a number of fan-favourite characters will feature along her journey. But how much of her is Doom? You can find out in an exclusive extract from this month’s Doctor Who Magazine, below.

Which bits of herself is Sooz Kempner bringing to Doom?

“People I know tell me I seem very unassuming in person, and then they suddenly realise there’s loads of fire,” says Sooz. “Doom’s own morality is quite ambiguous, and I love that she can be quite cantankerous. Her mind works a million miles a minute, and she’s very skilled. So when someone doesn’t quite keep up, either physically or mentally, she’ll voice her frustration."
