Any Suggestions, Doctor? The Improvised Doctor Who Parody (Any Suggestions Improv)

By | Published on Thursday 17 August 2023

Whovians who love comedy, this is clearly the show for you, for here your favourite BBC output is being recreated for you – kind of – by Any Suggestions Improv, and the themes of the TV show suit this format perfectly. Like most improv shows, the players begin with the audience’s suggestions and create a nonsensical and funny mess for each new crowd. Although, it should be said that it won’t just be ‘Doctor Who’ fans that will get something out of this, the result of the improv is a performance we can all laugh at. I found myself giggling and somewhat invested (it could be argued they have created something better than the writing of the previous TV seasons). I wish I had laughed slightly more, but they are a great team, and you’ll be eager to return for more.

Pleasance Dome, until 27 Aug.
