Win Doctor Who Live family tickets!

EXTERMINATE! Exterminate! The Daleks are about to invade Sheffield - and they are bringing a host of other scary monsters with them from TV's Doctor Who.
But fear not. The TARDIS is also about to materialise on the stage for a live show at Sheffield Arena.
And we have five family tickets to give away - each allowing four people to see the magic.
TV hit Doctor Who will regenerate into a live action musical spectacular for a 25 dates on a tour of nine cities.

It arrives at Sheffield Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 12 and 13.

The Doctor's arch-enemies joining him will be the Daleks, the Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Judoon, Silurian, Smilers, Winders, Scarecrows, Vampires, Clockwork Robots and Ood.

Based on the smash hit BBC TV series, bosses promise a spectacular audio-visual experience with live music, special effects and specially filmed new scenes, featuring new Doctor actor Matt Smith.

Matt and co-star Karen Gillan will not appear live on the stage but they are filming new scenes which will be seen for the first time during the shows, being developed by TV show supremo Steven Moffatt.
Moffatt, who runs the series and is executive producer, told The Star he wanted the live events to have the same excitement as the TV version.
"This is everything I ever wanted since I was eleven. A live show, with all the coolest Doctor Who monsters, a proper story, and brand new screen material for Matt Smith's Doctor," he said.

Doctor Who Live will open in wartime London and finishes with what is billed as "an epic onstage battle".
The action will be set to a live soundtrack by TV show composer Murray Gold, with a 16 piece orchestra live on stage.
The stage show will be the latest in a string of TV hits to get the live treatment, including Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing On Ice, X-Factor and even Top Gear.

It is launched at Wembley Arena, on October 8, 9 and 10. Sheffield is the first regional city to get the show.
