BBC Worldwide have announced details and dates for two more stops on next month’s World Tour to promote Series 8 – Seoul (South Korea) and Sydney (Australia). Both events will, like the previously announced Cardiff stop, feature a premiere screening of the Series 8 opener, Deep Breath. Here’s the details for Seoul:
BBC Worldwide today announced that the very first Doctor Who Global Publicity Tour will land in Seoul on Saturday, August the 9th. Korea is the first stop in the major global publicity tour to launch the new series of Doctor Who and introduce Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor.
The twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi and the Doctor’s on-screen companion, played by Jenna Coleman will land in Korea on 9 August and will spend the day with Korean fans and media.
The fan event will take place at IFC mall on the 9th and will start with a special fan screening of the new season’s first episode. After the screening, Peter and Jenna will meet with Korean Doctor Who fans. The fan meeting will take place at 5.00pm at the atrium of the mall and is open to all.
To celebrate the Korea stop of Doctor Who: The World Tour, there will be competitions where fans can WIN tickets to the screenings that will take place in multiple cinemas. More information about these competitions will be released later this week. Fans can follow doctorwho_kor on twitter for details.
And the details for Sydney:
Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and his onscreen companion Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) will be live on stage at the State Theatre, Sydney for a one-time-only fan event on Tuesday 12 August.
Following on from last year’s smash-hit 50th anniversary celebrations for Doctor Who, BBC Worldwide is thrilled to be bringing the stars of the show to Australia as part of a major global tour to launch the latest series and introduce fans to the new Doctor.
Join the stars for an exclusive Q&A hosted by long-time Doctor Who fan, Adam Spencer, and be the first in Australia to see Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor with a special screening of the feature-length premiere episode of the new series. Fans will also be given the opportunity to put some of their own questions to the stars.
The World Tour begins in Cardiff on 7th August, and will stop in London (8th August), Seoul (9th August), Sydney (12th August), New York (date unknown), Mexico City (date unknown) and will finish in Rio di Janeiro on 19th August. You can visit www.doctorwho.tv/worldtour for more details!
