Ticketek will also be in touch with those fans who have bought tickets to the event about refunds. Below is the statement that Matt Smith gave the organizers to share with the fans.
"I am deeply saddened to have to advise that I will not be able to come to Australia for the Hub Productions' Whoniverse event. Although I wish it were otherwise, due to a personal family emergency it's not possible for me to leave England at this time. I truly regret the situation, and the disappointment it must be causing, but I'm hoping to be able to reschedule as soon as possible for the future; I look forward to see you all then."Source: Doctor Who Newsite,
