Calling all German Doctor Who fans! BBC Worldwide have announced that Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will visit Germany for a special fan event live in Berlin on Friday 17th July.
This event marks Doctor Who’s first official visit to the country, giving German fans the chance to see the actors in person. The visit follows on from last year’s successful Doctor Who: The World Tour, in which Capaldi and Coleman circumnavigated the globe for various publicity events and appearances in seven different cities.
Peter Capaldi shared his thoughts and enthusiasm about the upcoming trip:
“So many German fans have already reached out to me about the show and I’m delighted to be travelling to their country to find out first hand why they love Doctor Who.”
Isabelle Helle, Director, German Speaking Europe from BBC Worldwide says:
“Doctor Who is continuing to rise in popularity in Germany so we were especially keen to bring the stars of the series, Peter and Jenna over. We’re thrilled to offer this unique opportunity for fans to see, for the first time, the leading cast members of the series and have a truly memorable experience.”
Further details of the fan event will be announced on the Doctor Who Facebook page over the following weeks, and German fans will be able to catch the upcoming series on Fox Channel Germany later this year.
