In 2019 the BBC marked the return of the longest running sci-fi drama on television with an animated VR adventure THE RUNAWAY. A 13 minute narrative experience set in the world of the Thirteenth Doctor, THE RUNAWAY is a fast paced adventure which takes place entirely in the TARDIS, in real time, where you are the Doctor’s newest companion, and must help her save the galaxy and rescue an alien life-form far from home. You wake inside the TARDIS after a collision. The Doctor introduces you to the thing you collided with. He’s a strange and magnificent ball of sentient energy called Volta. Part surly teenager, part nitroglycerin, and far away from home, Volta is very unstable. In fact, he’s primed to explode. Big time. Unless he can be returned to his home galaxy, sharpish. Problem is, a squad full of galactic busybodies has other plans for Volta. Bad ones. Drawn into a frantic chase, you become the Doctor’s unlikely assistant as she races against time to get Volta home to his parents.
