A "Doctor Who" virtual reality experience has launched which puts you inside the TARDIS.

The free VR special - which will be available on Friday (17.05.19) on the Oculus Store, Vive Port and on the BBC VR App - sees you wake up inside the TARDIS after a collision with a "ball of living energy" called Volta, described as a mix between a bomb and a "surly teenager".

It's up to the Doctor - with your help - to return Volta to his home planet, while a group of "galactic busybodies" tries to get hold of him for their own plans.

The adventure is also available for fans who don't have VR headsets of their as part of the BBC VR Hub's VR tour to local libraries across the UK.
